NOVYTSYA

1843/1889

St. Paraskeva/Dormition of the B. V. Mary

NOVYTSYANOVYTSYA
There are both a tserkva and a chapel in Novytsya, neither of which appears to be used now, but which, at one time, served more than 800 parishioners. Most of the present inhabitants were fascinated when we arrived in a VW-bus, because the country road is treacherous and leads over sizable hills, and it was raining. Writer and poet Bohdan Ihor Antonyc (1909-1937) was born in Novytsya. Some of his poetry collections were called: Pryvitannya Zhyttya (Greeting Life), Vesillya (Wedding), Knyha Leva (Leo's Book), among others.
