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.
