Saint Anthony's Church

Temple , Architecture

In the second half of the 17th century, the Lubomyrsky magnates, to whom Velyki Mezhyrichi belonged at that time, founded a Roman Catholic collegium.

In 1702-1725, the majestic church of Saint Anthony was built in the baroque style according to the project of the architect Voytsekh Lenartovych.

The church is stone, hall-type, with choirs, where the organ used to be. The interiors were decorated with rich stucco. The church is decorated with three pediments of late baroque character. On the altar side of the building, a two-story annex of the collegium with a library and an examination hall has been preserved.

Today, the church of Saint Anthony is in a very neglected state, although it is an architectural monument of national importance.

Saint Lawrence Church

Temple , Architecture

The one-nave church of Saint Lawrence in Taikury with an elongated faceted apse and two side chapels half the height of the nave is surrounded on all sides by a dilapidated but still strong stone wall.

A belfry in the form of a high pediment with three vertical slits for bells is attached to the western corner. Once the church had a crowning pinak tower above the ridge of the pitched roof. Despite the neglected state, the main elements of the architectural design are clearly visible in the interior: pilasters, horizontal belts, cornice with a complex set of profiles. The composition of the main part of the interior space is completed by a cylindrical vault with deep formwork in the places adjacent to the windows, elastic arches and bundles of false ribs. Other rooms are covered with ordinary cross vaults.

According to legend, the church of Saint Lawrence was built thanks to an accident: the dog of the nobleman Peplovsky, looking for game shot by his master, dug up a golden treasure from the ground. Thanks to fate, the nobleman built a church on that place.

Saint Nicholas Church

Temple , Architecture

The wooden Saint Nicholas Church is located in the western part of the ancient Rus settlement of Peresopnytsia.

It was probably built in the 18th century on the site of an older church that existed during the heyday of the Peresopnytsia Monastery of the Nativity of the Virgin, when the Peresopnytsia Gospel was created (16th century).

The Nicolas Church is a three-part, one-story building consisting of a rectangular nave and nave and a hexagonal altar block. Above the nave rises an octagonal pediment, crowned by an octagonal dome with a decorative lantern. In 1888, an additional entrance was cut into the southern wall of the nave, highlighted by a small porch on two wooden posts, and a vestibule was added to the nave from the west. A two-story wooden belfry was built nearby.

The Nicolas Church in Peresopnytsia has harmonious proportions and is one of the most distinctive wooden churches in this region of Volyn.

Next to the church there is a reconstruction of a fragment of the Peresopnytsia hillfort of the 12th-13th centuries - a wooden wall with three towers.

Saint Nicholas Source

Historic area , Natural object

Known throughout Volhyn, the tract of Saint Nicholas with twin Sources in a stone grotto (cave) has been known since the time of the Ostrozky princes.

On the outskirts of the village of Hilcha Persha, clean Sources of living cold water emerge from the ground. It was believed that these keys are not simple, but "thunderous", struck by God's lightning and, therefore, healing. Therefore, for centuries, the source of Saint Nicholas has attracted many people.

The grotto and pool were built in the 18th century. The poet Olena Pchilka (mother of Lesya Ukrainka), who was in Hilcha with her children, described the "God's path" of the holy stream in the short poem "Hulcha".

Saints Peter and Paul Apostles Church

Temple , Architecture

The wooden church of the Saints Apostles Peter and Paul in Velyki Mezhyrichi was built in 1848 on the site of an older church.

The building is three-log, one-story. The architecture of the monument combines classicist principles with pseudo-Rus styling. In the interior, the highly open inner space of the nave is actively enhanced by the contrast of the flat-roofed nave, which opens into the nave with a high semi-circular arch-cut.

The Peter and Paul Church is a work of wooden architecture of the Rivne region of the middle of the 19th century.

Spring of Saint Anna

Temple , Natural object

Spring of Saint Anna in Onyshkivtsi is a holy spring with a bath, one of the pilgrimage centers of Orthodox believers in Volyn.

According to an old tradition, in the 17th century, there was an icon of Saint Righteous Anna at this place, and a non-freezing spring, which is considered healing, flowed from the ground.

The chapel of Saint Anna was built above the spring. The water temperature in the spring is 4 degrees throughout the year. Those who want to heal from diseases dive into the water in the open pool. Women are asked to come to the bathhouse in a long shirt.
