Osmoloda

Osmoloda village, an ancient settlement of woodcutters, lies on a highland where the Limnytsya river flows. It is protected from cold winds by mountain ranges. The village lies in the foothills of mount Moloda. That's where its name comes from.

Downstream there is Pidlyute village, where there was the Cedar Chamber villa, famous as metropolitan Andriy Sheptytsky's resort residence. Unfortunately, nowadays the villa belongs to a state establishment and it is not open for visitors. Since long ago, the surroundings belonged to Lviv metropolitanate, and were a place for Lviv metropolitans to come for treatment, as there was a great quantity of natural mineral streams. In Osmoloda itself there were saws, which belonged to the metropolitanate.

A blast-furnace dating back to 1810 has been preserved in the village.

The area is rarely visited by tourists, because of its poor tourist infrastructure, rather bad roads and, as a result, no transport. The only way to get to the village is to go by bus departing from Kalush three times a day in the morning, and it takes about 3 hours. There are a few groceries, a workers' hostel, a dining room and a trout pond.
