Sedniv

The Resurrection Church
The Resurrection Church
Sedniv, Chernihiv Region, is a small settlement (1,200 residents) on the high right bank of Snov River. For the first time the Ipatiivsky Chronicle mentions it as a Snovsk fortress under the year of 1068. There is a guess that Sedniv cradled freedom-loving Kozaks, which later moved to the lower course of Dnipro and founded the Zaporizhzhia Sich. From the 17th c. Sedniv becomes the family estate of the Lyzohubs, elected Kozak officials, which were connected with all major local landmarks. The oldest ones include the stone building (17th c.) fronting a picturesque river valley and the Resurrection Church (1690) built as a family burial-vault. The wooden St. George Church (also the 17th c.) built on the side slope of the river valley undergoes capital restoration now. The Lyzohubs' manor (18th c.) hosted T. Shevchenko, L. Zhemchuzhnikov, and L. Hlibov. The surrounding old park boasts many old trees, including the linden-tree, favored by Taras Shevchenko. Here, he wrote his poem The Witch. There is also the L. Hlibov's favorite arbor (19th c.) on the hillside, where he wrote his poem "Sorrow" ("There is a Mount") that later became a popular folk song. In 1849, D. Lyzohub, a founder of the terrorist organization "Land and Freedom", was born here. He frivoled away all his enormous capital to promote revolution. S. Perovska and A. Zheliabov hid here from tsar's persecution in the 70s of the 19th c. For his terrorist activity thirty-year-old D. Lyzohub was hung in Odesa.
