Photographer's Note

ruins of old (17th or 18th? century cathedral in a village in western ukraine. very romantic and sad place.

some more information, specially foe kielia. i did not find too much information about this particular church but most of them was ruined, destroyed, abandoned during soviet period starting from 1920th. some were converted to warehouses or culture clubs, etc. in 1990th when ussr has crashed religion started to return to people, they began to rebuilt old churches. but there is not to much money in the country for this and people try to collect it by themselves. as i know reconstruction of this church has been started 3-5 years ago but too slowly.
