Boot Scraper in Koropets

I visited two villages where an ancestor of mine lived/worked. The villages are about an hour from Ivano-Frankivsk and are seperated by the Dniester River. We had to hitch a boat ride from Koropets to the other side of the river and then walk through the village Luha before making it Deleva.

Here is a boot scraper located outside the old wooden church (1795) in Koropets.
