Church of the Intercession in the village Berezhtsi

Olga Petrovna Kosach visited the village Berezhtsi, Lyuboml district, Volyn region, with her children (including Lesja Ukrainka) for two weeks in the summer of 1892. Most likely, it was the first half of July. They visited the local priest Yulian Mylyashevych and lived in the school building.

We do not have a photo of this school, we provide a photo of the church built in the same 1892. The photo was taken in 1940-1960 (the church burned down in 1963).
