Let me introduce myself

My name is Natasha Lukianovitch. I was born in Ukraine’s capital Kiev in 1950. After my studies biology I dwelled around the globe but after all I returned to my beloved homeland. In 2008, when on a trip through the country, I accidentally discovered the small village of Busha. It was very different from the usual Ukraine villages and it impressed me deeply. One year later I had started to live there!


I would like to invite you to Busha - a place of beauty, history and positive energy. I will be your guide and can provide you a simple accommodation. Once you visit this place, you will want to come back.  


A place for rural tourism

Busha is a small but bright star on the tourist map of Ukraine. It is a very remote and rural area where no industrial development has taken place.


The village belongs to Podolia region, a historic region in west-central and south-western Ukraine extending to north-eastern Moldova. It’s location is near Moldova’s border somewhere in between the province towns Yampol and Mogilov-Podilsky.
Podolia has a rich history and its people, besides Ukrainians, include Poles, Jews, Romanians, Germans and Armenians.




Historical settlements in the area date back to several ancient civilizations inhabiting Podolia from the beginning of the Neolithic era. It started with the Scythians (from the 11th century BC onward), followed by the Cucuteni-Trypillian culture (4800 to 3000 BC) and the Chernyakhov culture (between the 2nd and 5th centuries AD). During the Great Migration Period (400 to 800 AD) different Slavic tribes settled in this region.

Busha is known in history because of the ‘Peace of Busza’ that was signed in this village between the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and the Ottoman Empire in 1617. During the mid-17th century, the city, was also the site of several battles between Poles and Ukrainian Cossacks. After the destruction of the fortress the city soon lost its status and was degraded to village ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Busha )

This are the 8 preserved archeological/historical sites of Busha:


- 4 archeological sites dating back from the third millennium BC to the 12th century AD


- city hall of the 16th century (located on private property)


- pre-Christian and Christian rock temple of the 5th-16th centuries with unique artistic relief


- remains of the castle and subways of the 16th-17th centuries


- cemetery of 18th-19th centuries.


All of these can be visited, except for the city hall on private property.


Sculpture Park


One of the archeological sites also harbors a historical sculpture park where the international meeting of stone cutters takes place. This yearly festival is named ‘Podilsky Oberig’.
