  • It was constructed in 1995 and presents a typical Hutsul dwelling - grazhda. It looks like a small fortress - a closed courtyard where the house with household annexes was located, and the gates, closed for night, served as entrance. Fortifications served as defense against wild animals and strong winds. Such structures were typical in XIV-XIX с., when Hutsuls lived separately. Nowadays one can meet them but rarely - practically in museums.
