VYSLOK NYZHNIY
Vyslok Nyzhniy will be remembered as the capital of an Ukrainian state that was Independent for only three weeks. This happened immediately after W.W.I in 1918. One of the organizers of this state was the local parish priest, Rev. Panteleymon Shpylka. Three weeks after independence was proclaimed, Polish soldiers occupied the territory and the organizers were forced to flee the country. The village was burned down on January 24, 1946, after the Ukrainians were expelled. The tserkva serves the Polish Roman Catholic parish.
