THE UKRAINIAN CARPATHIANS

Slovenska verzia

Russkaja versija Русская версия
Vorokhta

The Carpathians mountains look like a gigantic arc on the map of Europe.
The middle part of the ark is situated in the Western Ukraine.
The highest point is the summit Hoverla (2061m).
Mainly the mountains are covered by virgin fir-tree, beach and beam-hornforests with rich flora & fauna.
The local people, the ethnical group of Ukrainians which are called Hutsuls.
Due to being isolated by the mountains, those people boast unique architecture,picturesque costumes etc.
Having a rather developed network offtrails, this part of the Carpathians is beneficially distinguished
from the parts in the neighbouring countries by not being overcrowded which hill-walkers.
That fact allows to face wild nature instead of crowds of hikers.
