Why choose Zalischyky?

Zalischyky is a unique picturesque place surrounded by Dniester from three sides. It is the only location in the western parts of Ukraine with mild mediterranean climate. The place has proven itself to be highly valuable and of great potential through different historical periods.

Even during medieval times, when trade route was on Dniester, the merchants who travelled by river liked to stay in the quiet area over the woods. And when the settlement became permanent it was called Zalissya (over the woods) and later in 1578 the name Zalischyky was noted. But modern city’s area had been settled much earlier: during archaeological excavations objects and burial sites were found from late paleolith, Tripoli, Lipitsk, Early Slavic and Old Russian cultures.

In 1766 the city received Magdeburg Law which influenced greatly the popularity of already famous craftsmen: carpetmakers, potters, carvers, etc.

Unfortunately there are not so many archival records from the 18th century but it is obvious that during Austrian times Zalischyky was the center of the developed crafts and culture. When preparing for struggle with Russia during Crimean war Austrian government built military fortifications which existed till the end of the 19th century. Today the parts of the cobblestone roads and many basements, which had formed the tunnel system, remained. There is an assumption that under Zalischyky is a tunnel system connecting even both sides of Dniester.

From the July 3rd, 1919 Zalischyky were a part of Poland till the First World War. In spite of the border position it was the most prosperous time for the city as a resort area call “Polish Riviera” with numerous villas and recreation residences. At that period Zalischyky inspired and attracted artists. A great number of cultural events, concerts, exhibitions, equestrian events were organized. Noblesse and intelligence representatives, as opera star Solomiya Krushelnytska, writers Yuriy Fedkovich and Vasyl Stefannyk, first Polish marshall Yuriy Pilsudskyi, came here for vacation.

In the beginning of the 19th century a relatively unknown Duke Ponyatovsky’s court existed in Zalischyky. Brunnytskyi family bought the city from Ponyatovsky, who built here a palace in the end of the 18th century. They wanted not only mansion but baronial ranking as well, so they had to change the name from Brunstein to Brunnytskyi. In 1852 Cisar Frantz II was passing Zalischyky, Brunnytskyi recreated the inetrior of his mansion reminding the one seen in Schoenbrunn. Cisar was impressed and confirmed Brunnytskyi’s baronage.

The palace and park of the famous lanscape designer Siverin Lusakovskyi is the city decoration and the history of his last proprietress became a true legend. Baroness Stella von Turnau, “Jeanne D’Arc of Zalischyky”, in 1914 protected the city with the armour in her hands in emplacement together with the soldiers and when it was necessary to retreat promised to return the city and followed her husband to the front line. The woman is described as the one who not only fighted but inspired the others. Baroness was the first woman who received the highest reward for the bravery from Cisar.

In the beginning of June 1919 Zalischyky was the capital of Western Ukrainian National Republic. In July 1919 Zalischyky was occupied by Poland. So Zalischyky were a part of Poland till the Second World War. Due to unique natural conditions Zalischyky attracted tourists from all parts of Poland. The city had numerous resort areas, wonderful equipped beaches and parks. Also unofficial nudist beach was here.

In the end of the 19th century Jewish population was the largest in the city, Ukrainians lived mostly in the surrounding villages, and Polish were on government positions. Now only one synagogue from the end of the 18th century remained.

Unfortunately the war and Soviet times have ruined most of the city touristic infrastructure and historical monuments. The city hall located on the main square became its symbol on the coat of arms and was dismantled in 1969. Also the beaches of the former Polish resort were destroyed by Dniester flood.

But natural treasures of Zalishyky are indestructible. Unique panorama, warm climate, Dniester shores and hills make the city really attractive for the travellers. As a heart of the Dniester canyon the city is surrounded by the picturesque hills, Dniester shores are a great place for recreation and best for photoshoots.

Zalischyky is now at the revival stage. Tourist infrastructure is revived, winery traditions are renewed, new hotels and touristic attractions appear. For the last years attractive green areas and two parks are renewed.

In the city and surrounding areas there are many locations with incredible views over Dniester canyon. In Zalishcyky region there are numerous beautiful, mysterious, interesting locations worth of attention but the most important are Chervonograd ruins and Jurynskyi waterfall. Region is rich in natural karst caves and historical architectural sights.

Today Zalischyky is a unique place with outstanding nature and history. Every year thousands of tourists come here from all over the world. InStrum Fest Zalischyky aims to renew cultural potential of the town and international significance.
