Church of St. Elijah

The Church of St. Elijah was built in the 1650s in the style of early Ukrainian Baroque. After the Second World War, a museum of the national hero Bohdan Khmelnytsky (1648 - 1657), who was supposed to be buried here, was opened in the church. In 1954, a symbolic granite tombstone in his honour was erected in the church according to the design of architect I. Shmulson. Since 1990, the church has been returned to the religious community.
