Kyiv-Zhytomyr highway (Hurivshchyna, Kalyimivka)

Kyiv-Zhytomyr highway (Hurivshchyna, Kalyimivka)
 
The Villages of Hurivshchyna (294 residents) in Kyiv-Sviatoshyn Region and Kalynivka (884 residents) of Makariv Region are situated along an important motorway of Ukraine-Kyiv-Zhytomyr-Lviv - that was called Brest-Lytovsk Highway since olden times. In the 19th c. it led to Brest-Lytovsk (now Brest, Republic of Belarus), where highways from Kyiv and Moscow met to proceed to Warsaw. In 1827, the postal office of Russia organizes the regular mail-coach service connecting Saint Petersburg, Mohyliv, Kyiv, Zhytomyr and Radyvyliv. The point of destination was the customs crossing on the border on Austria-Hungary. In Russia, in the late 19th c, there were over 4,000 post offices, which played an extraordinarily important role in domestic life. The old houses of post offices in Hurivshchyna and Kalynivka are rare civil architectural objects in Ukraine. Built in 1846, these Kyiv-area post offices are of standard building type, like that in Kopachivka Village, Volyn.
