Rosokhy is a small village with a population of about 150 people located in Lviv Oblast of Ukraine near the border with Poland, about 123 km southwest of Lviv.

The main attraction of this village is a complex of buildings of the fortified Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary built in the 15th-16th centuries and included in the list of monuments of architecture of national importance. At that time, this region was within the reach of the raids of the Crimean Tatars, therefore there was a need for such fortifications.
