Three Unique Ukrainian Games

Each culture has its own unique set of games. Oftentimes, these stretch back centuries and evolve slowly over time. For example, many believe the origin of poker lies in the German pochen, a card game popular during colonial expansion from Western Europe. Some even believe that pochen has its origin in the ancient Persian as-nas, which has many similarities to modern poker variations.

Millenia later, poker remains one of the world’s most popular casino games. Those looking to learn how to play casino online games can get started by choosing a platform first. From there, most online casinos include a familiar set of steps to get started gaming, including registering an account and then selecting the game that’s right for them.

For example, slots players might look for high RTPs, while blackjack players might look for a certain variation, like American Roulette. However, if you’re looking for a uniquely Ukrainian game, you can find platforms online that offer locally developed titles or even purchase physical board and card games.

Ukraine is a country of many things. It has a rich cultural heritage, a strong sense of identity, a large land mass, powerful heavy industry, and a vast agricultural sector that plays a crucial role in feeding the world.

When you picture Ukraine, you probably think of vyshyvankas, sunflowers, and the traditional hair braids sported by its women.

You probably also picture its bustling cities that offer up a mix of concrete Soviet architecture, shining modern structures, and older buildings that pre-date the 20th century. And if you’ve seen the hit TV show Chernobyl, you likely also conjure up images of the abandoned city of Pripyat that acts as a sort of time capsule for looking into a forgotten world.

Church of St. Basil in Sil’

Sil’ (literally meaning “salt”) is a village of about 600 people located on the banks of the Uzh River in the very north-west of Zakarpattia Oblast, about 53 km from Uzhhorod. The village was founded at the beginning of the 17th century and was mentioned in written sources under the name Solyanoye Pole (“salt field”).

In 1707, from the village of Syanky located nearby, a three-tiered wooden church of the Boiko style (1703) was brought here. This was done because the local church burned down. The church was consecrated in honor of St. Basil.
