About this Item
- Yasinya. Wooden Churches.
- This image is part of an album probably published in about 1920 that contains 20 photographs of scenes in Carpathian Ruthenia, a mountainous region, most of which was part of the Austria-Hungary before World War I, but which became part of the new Czechoslovak state in 1919. Today the largest portion of it forms Zakarpattia Oblast in western Ukraine, with smaller parts in Slovakia and Poland. On the right in this picture is the Church of the Ascension of Our Lord in Yasinya, built in 1824 and typical of the Hutsul, or Hucul, style. Hutsul churches are built in the form of a cross, with the four extensions connected to the dominant central square. The impressive bell tower is on the left. Yasinya (or Jasina) is the largest village in the region.
