Today, Kokhavyno is not a separate territorial unit. This place is located almost in the center of Hnizdychiv – an urban village in the Zhydachiv district of the Lviv region, about 70 km south of Lviv. It is a famous pilgrimage place.

The main attraction of this place is the Monastery of St. Gerard founded by the monks of the Carmelite Order in 1755. The monastery was founded near the wooden church built for the miraculous icon of Our Lady of Kokhavyno in 1748. Monastery of St. Gerard on Google Maps. Photos by: <a target=_blank
