Trip to Przemyślany, Ukraine

From 19th to 25th August 2009 representatives of Skawina Twinning Association visited Skawina’s Ukrainian Twin Town – Przemyślany.

In this tiny town located South – West of Lviv we met many friendly and hospitable people.

We stayed in a building belonging to the church that has been run and looked after by Polish Salesians for several years, where during communism there was a gun factory. The priests are happy of each new piece of decor and they talk with passion about successive stages of reconstruction and struggle for survival.

Our stay in Przemyślany was during Independence Day of Ukraine. On this occasion in the town Culture House there was a concert of patriotic and folk songs, which was a musical setting of the celebration of signing of the twinning agreement by the Mayors – Adam Najder and Petro  Buchok and representatives of the Town Council (in Poland the agreement was signed on 11th November 2008).

Being in historical region we visited beautiful places: Lviv with its marvellous monuments and Lychakiv Cemetery, Pidhirtsi with fairy-tale palace, Zhovkova – seat of Polish kings, Drohobych – a city of Bruno Schultz, Kremenets with Słowacki Museum and ruins of Bona’s castle, Pochaiv – sacred place for Orthodox and Uniow  - with famous for miracles Basilian monks’ church. Alina – a real Polish history enthusiast in Ukraine guided us in all those places.

Kindergarten children made us very happy, who despite holidays together with their teachers invited us for a theatrical walk in the forest in the company of singing chickens. We also visited schools where the children who visited Skawina in the summer attend.

This type of trips are a good chance to realization of the idea of twin towns. This one was also a chance to get to know unknown history or the beginning of searching of the roots.
