Open for yourself original Ukraine

Almost 95% of the Prykarpattia residents are of Ukrainian origin. This is one of the highest rates among all the regions of Ukraine. Indigenous ethnographic regions of Opillya, Boikivshchyna, Hutsulshchyna and Pokuttya form the authentic side of Ivano-Frankivsk. Their residents preserved Old Ukrainian flair with its rich material and spiritual culture, as well as a number of distinct differences in rituals, folk architecture, clothing, way of life and crafts. Ivano-Frankivsk region is traditionally famous for carving, furriery, egg painting, ceramics, weaving, and embroidery, cheese-making and so on. Flamboyant and colorful clothes, original music and song culture of Hutsuls is the achievement both of Ukrainian and world culture. Wooden Hutsul and Boiko churches and grazhdas are world-renowned, mostly due to their architectural style, which is characterized by high aesthetics level and harmonious combination with the environment. Kosiv, as well as its local fair, is a prominent center of Hutsul art, filled with a variety of artistic choices.
