Life of Highlander Semen and His Wife

Posted on February 7, 2014 by team

There are not so many places in Ukraine today where a visit of a stranger becomes a big event for locals. Without any misgivings and doubts they let strangers enter their houses, show them the best they have, feed them until they’re full and ask them to visit them again. One such village is located in the highland Chernivtsi region inhabited by Hutsuls – Ukrainian highlanders. His name is Semen

Locals are very hospitable.

    Pittoresk stillife of a normal society, and look at the chickens and what a nice needlework from the THREE BOGYATIRS: Dobrynya Nikitich, Ilya Muromets and Alyosha Popovich. RUSSIAN stllife at her best.

    There is a wonderful photo-essay “Domestic landscapes” by Dutch photographer showing hundreds of similar households throughout Europe. Interesting.
