It was engaged in the manufacture of the famous sculptor village Rungory Alexei Bondarenko - his works are found in many countries around the world. Opening of a new monument was a historic event.
However, only 20 km from here, in the village of Kosmach the Kosovo district, there is another unique museum devoted to famed opryshky, Ataman of the liberation movement. It was founded by Ukrainian ethnographer, researcher of the Hutsul, folk artist, painter, sculptor Mikhail Didyshin-Yusipchuk.
In the 70s he found the hut, once belonged to a certain Pole Stefan Zvonchaku, which served as a refuge Dovbush in the winter, and in which the hero was killed.
