Uzhok Sights | Wooden Church of Synaxis of Archangel Michael (1745) | UNESCO World Heritage
Wooden Church of Synaxis of Archangel Michael (1745) is one of the most interesting wooden churches of Boyko style. It is so perfectly placed on the slope so seems grown on its place.

Dominating central dome, small dome over altar and small rectangular tower over babynetz completes harmonious composition of Wooden Church of Synaxis of Archangel Michael.

Wooden Church of Synaxis of Archangel Michael was built by master Pavel Toniv of neighboring Bitlya village and master Ivan Tsyhanyn of Tikhiy village. Building works was finished June 11, 1745. It is said that the original church was built high on a mountainside but old people were hard walk up there and the church moved down the hill almost to the road. In the bishop's visitation in 1751 speaks of a new church in Uzhok that has two bells.

The interior of Wooden Church of Synaxis of Archangel Michael captures the contrast between dark low babynetz and open bright space of the central dome.
