Shevchenkove is a very small village with a population of about 150 people located in the Halych district of the Ivano-Frankivsk region, 28 km north of Ivano-Frankivsk.

Here you can find remains of old defensive ramparts and a unique architectural monument of national importance – Church of St. Panteleymon (1194), the oldest church in Western Ukraine.

It is the only surviving church of the times of the Principality of Galicia-Volhynia (1199-1253). Church of St. Panteleymon on Google Maps. Photos by: Maxim Ritus.
