Sokirnitsa Sights | Wooden Church of St. Nicholas (1709)
According to legends Wooden Church of St. Nicholas was built in Shashvar (now Trosnyk of Vynohradiv district) in early XVII century in the form of house-church without tower with high roof covered of straw.

In 1770 after transferring to Sokirnitsa the church rebuilt and added tower above the babinets. In the bishop's visitation in 1801 states that "the wooden church built of strong oak is old but still good and had not accommodate parishioners".

Near Wooden Church of St. Nicholas stands high bell tower built in 1770. The frame of the bell tower consists of oak timbers with thickness of 24-28 cm. The surface of the roof is covered with shingles.

According to the inscription on icon of St. Onuphrius iconostasis established in 1748.

In Soviet period Wooden Church of St. Nicholas was closed and most of icons disappeared. Survived two icons of Holy Virgin Mary and icon of St. Nicholas. Old paintings remained on pedestals under icons. On icon "St. Anthony and St. Theodosius Pechersky" in the middle of it between the figures of saints depicted the church with a spire. In the church preserved framing of icons of XVIII century, Royal Gates and candle holders.

Across the road of Wooden Church of St. Nicholas is a wooden chapel of Crucifixion. Such chapels were much more in Transcarpathia but almost all demolished. Preserved three of them - in Kamenske, Seredne Vodyane and Sokirnitsa. Up to the early 1990s the chapel was covered with shingles.
