Hryhoriy Savych Skovoroda is a Ukrainian philosopher-mystic, theologian, poet, teacher, and possibly a composer of liturgical music. He had a significant influence on his contemporaries and subsequent generations with his fables, songs, philosophical works, as well as his way of life, which is why he was called Socrates. This winter, we will celebrate the 300th anniversary of the great philosopher, whose name is known and respected all over the world.
The museum is located in the 17th-century estate, where Hryhoriy Skovoroda worked in the last years of his life and near which he was buried. The museum was opened in 1972, and it was planned to celebrate its 50th anniversary in May of this year.
