This article is part of the project "Volyn'59", which tells about the photo-fixation of the historical and architecture objects located in the Volyn region in the late 50s - early 60s. After the expedition, some of the monuments were demolished, and some received state protection. We invite you to view other articles in this project.
St. Michael's Church in the village of Khmeliv was built in 1770 as a Greek Catholic church. After the Third Polish Republic was formed, the Greek Catholic Church was persecuted by the Russian authorities in Volynia and was virtually abolished. The churches became Orthodox, which caused the future reconstructions that the Khmeliv shrine underwent.
However, today's appearance of the church doesn't differ from what it was in the middle of the last century. We advise fans of Volyn sacred architecture to visit it.
