The New York Times travels to Trans-Carpathia

The New York Times has discovered  our distinctive wooden churches in Ukraine's Trans-Carpathian region, posting a series of photos and an article about the architectural gems from the Rusyn heartland.

The article notes: "The area is also believed to have been the only province of the Soviet Union that was ever governed by an American, Gregory Zatkovich, an ethnic Rusyn — or Ruthenian — from Pittsburgh who was appointed governor in 1920 when the region was still part of Czechoslovakia."
