A Hutzul version of Robin Hood?? This I have to see!

16th annual Kolomeyka Hutzul festival

Hutzul mountain dwellers gathered in Ivano-Frankivsk oblast for the 16th annual Kolomeyka festival.

Several thousand Hutzuls from around the world descended upon the village of Pechynizhyn in the Carpathian Mountains. The village is considered to be the home of Oleksa Dovbush – the Hutzul version of Robin Hood, whose band of merry men were known as the oprichky. The festival program included a traditional Hutzul wedding and artisans from the mountains came to share and sell their wares.
