I wrote this church off as demolished. I have searched for it a few times and based on research it was long gone. Good thing I gave it one last chance - it was in the middle of a field! Literally just falling into the ground in a field. This little church must have been quite the site back in the date - it is in very rough condition but still beautiful from an explorers perspective.

I visited this church in the winter - however the road out to it was impassible and walking through the knee deep snow was not looking promising. I waited until the snow cleared up to visit this church again and just my luck I even got the opportunity to photograph the beautiful full intact interior. It looks like everyone had left and only bugs and small birds had been inside. It was gorgeous and I am glad to have the chance to document it.

This church was obviously on my list of ukrainian churches to photograph. Looks like most of the other churches I photograph so I didn't except to find what I did. When we got inside we noticed the carpet had little tiny burn marks in it - throughout the whole carpet. We brushed this off as weird until reading the note on the wall which explained the church was hit by lightening and fried every staple in the carpet. I have never seen anything like it so I thought I would share this interesting story.

I have a specific way of finding ukrainian churches and I have spent years marking them out on maps in hopes to visit them all. I was recently informed by someone of a church was not on my mapping system. I figured it was not important until I saw his pictures... wow, i knew i had to see it. I planned for the first available weekend and hit the grids. It was well worth my time. It was beautifully decayed, hidden amongst the trees it was quite the site. Here are some pictures including a pano of the inside.
