Photo and description
The Forest Song Museum is located near the Volyn forest village of Skuline, which is located 16 kilometers northeast of Kovel. The famous Ukrainian poetess Lesya Ukrainka very often visited these parts in childhood. It was here in 1884, spending the summer months visiting Uncle Leo, that she heard various Volyn legends about the fabulous inhabitants of the Polissya thickets (Mavka, mermaids and wood goblin), which inspired her to create wonderful literary works. Nearby, 8 kilometers from Skulin, there is a reserve of national importance - the Nechimne tract, which was described by L. Ukrainka in the popular poem "Forest Song".
Back in the period of the "late" USSR, fans of L. Ukrainka's creativity built a modest house in the Nechimne tract, not far from the lake. But after a while this house burned down, and the paths leading to it were overgrown with bushes. For a long time, this so-called "Lesin" corner of Polesie was practically inaccessible to tourists due to impassable roads and swamps. And only in 2004, on the initiative of the Kovel regional state administration, a hard-surfaced road was built to the Nechimne tract and a small "stage" was built, on which poetic holidays "Forest Song" were held in subsequent years. After that, on the place where the house of Uncle Lev was once located, the foresters built a two-story wooden house, in which in August 2004, at one of the poetry holidays, the Forest Song Museum was opened, the exhibits for which were collected with the help of the workers of the Kolodyazhnensky Memorial Museum of L. Ukrainka.
