Mykulychyn Village

The first records of Mykulychyn (or Mikulichin) have been been recorded in historical documentation dating back to the 15th century. Information on the village has existed since the ancient times, when Prince Danylo Halytskiy granted the neighbouring lands to Voyevoda Mykula. The village was subsequently named after him. Archeologists have found aretefacts in Mykulychyn made of copper and stone from the Stone Age. In accordance with the data of 1912, Tatariv and Vorokhta, which used to be the adjacent villages then, belonged to Mykulychyn.

The population of Mykulychyn is about five thousand people; its total area amounts to 15841 ha.

The famous Ukrainian writers Lesya Ukrayinka and Ivan Franko would spend their vacations here. As far back as the beginning of the 20th century, quite a number of villas and holiday homes appeared in Mykulychyn; and in 1901, Narodna Hostynnytsa, the first Ukrainian hotel was opened.
