The Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (1581-1584), a picturesque wooden Orthodox church, is one of the architectural attractions of Chortkiv and the oldest church of this town.

The attacks of the Ottomans and Crimean Tatars in 1593, 1617, 1640 caused significant damage to the building. It acquired its present appearance in 1635. The church and bell tower were completely renovated in the 1990s. Church of the Assumption on Google Maps. Photos by: Maxim Ritus.
