In the center of the village, next to the stone church of St. Michael the Archangel (1938), you can see the wooden church of St. Michael the Archangel (1663). Nearby, there is a wooden bell tower built in 1722. Together they form a monument of architecture of national importance. Isai on Google Maps. Photos by: Maxim Ritus.

Ilnyk is a village with a population of about 1,500 people located in the Turka District in the south-west of Lviv Oblast. Here you can see one of the most harmonious Catholic wooden churches in Ukraine – the Chapel of the Paramanny (Mourning) Mother of God built in 1932-1933.

This is one of the eleven existing wooden Catholic churches of the first half of the 20th century located in the Lviv region. Unfortunately, this picturesque building doesn’t have a status of an architectural monument, it is abandoned and is gradually being destroyed. Ilnyk on Google Maps. Photos by: Maxim Ritus.
