Pykulovychi (Ukrainian: Пикуловичі), also known as Pikulovychi (Ukrainian: Пікуловичі) is a rural locality (selo) in Pustomyty Raion of Lviv Oblast, Ukraine, located 20 kilometres (12 mi) east of the city of Lviv. When the area belonged to Poland (1918-1939) the village was also known as Pikulovitse (Polish: Pikułowice).

Pykulovychi was first mentioned in 1464.[1] In the selo, a wooden Church of the Saint Mary survived. The church was built in 1794 in the traditions of Galician wooden architecture, with three domes, and is designated as a monument of architecture.[2]
