HUTSUL GRAZHDA Museum

Description:
The grazhda was built in 1995 and represents a typical Hutsul mansion. Its shape reminds a little fortress – a fenced yard, which comprised a hut and household premises built around the house, its entrance was a gate, which was closed at night. Grazhda was well fortified, mainly to be protected from predators and strong winds. As it can be seen from numerous researches, in particular, by V. Shukhevych's, the famous ethnographer from Halychyna, Hutsul huts were located not close to each other, but on a considerable distance from each other, in the mountains around villages.
A hut had one or two rooms and a hallway between them. The hut was surrounded by household premises – workshops, household rooms, a shed, etc., which served as additional protection.
In XIV-XIX centuries, when the Hutsuls lived far from each other, such fortified mansions were typical of the Hutsul region, however you can see them quite rarely nowadays, mainly in the national architecture and household museums in Krylos and Lviv, etc.
