Petrikovka was founded in 1772 by the last ataman of Sich, Peter Kalnyshevsky, who spent the last 20 years of his life in the dungeons of the Solovetsky prison. It was on this free land, which did not know serfdom, that Petrikov's famous painting for the whole world was born, where every smear is a note of joy, life and freedom.
