(visited by Ihor Klyufas)

06-May-2017 -- After a successful visit of 27°N 86°E in Nepal in 2015 I decided to visit one more confluece that is located much closer to my home city. Though it had already been visited 8 times, it was interesting to go there.

I started cycling from Lviv through the villages Bryukhovychi (crossing the forest with a dozen of ravines, hills, and mud), Zavadiv (there is a Cossacks chaika (boat) on the lake), Zashkiv, Kosteiv, Mervychi, and Wiesenberg (a former German colony).

The confluence is located in a field not far from the road.

After taking several photos I decided to visit Zhovkva heading through the village Stara Skvaryava (there is a nice old wooden church dating to 1508). In Zhovkva I visited some historical sites on a Vicheva Square with its castle, town hall, and churches, had a very tasty dinner, visited one more wooden church (dating to 1720), and returned back to Lviv through the village Kulykiv.
