ST. DIMITRY CHURCH IN BUKIVKA
St. Dimitry Church in Bukivka, Hertsa District, Chernivtsi Oblast, Ukraine

Wooden St. Dimitry church and its bell tower, the central group

The church was built in the XVIII century for the account of Vilchynskiy, a rich resident of the village. The structure is located in Bukivka, Hertsa District. This is a typical Bukovynian wooden church, however, unlike in other churches, its bell tower with two-level roof is semi-attached to the main building. And unlike other old churches in Bukovyna, this is not covered with plastic lining yet.

 

A trip from Chernivtsi to Bukivka by car through E85 will be up to 40 km long.
