Karmeliuk’s Podillia National Nature Park

Vinnytsia region

About park

To see the beauty of a unique virgin forest, feel the aroma of wild grasses, wander the paths trampled down by wild beasts, see a plant from the pre-glacier period with your own eyes, and ride a mini-train on narrow-gauge railway – it’s all about Karmeliuk’s Podilia National Nature Park. Almost all the hills of the park are covered with forests, many of which reached the centenary age. The region is rich in majestic temples, historical and sacred places.

The wildcat prowls carefully in the thickets, graceful roe deer walk, badgers and foxes come out of their burrows to hunt. In the meadows, blue, purple and white heads of the Eastern pasqueflower (Pulsatilla patens) stand out in all their beauty, the flowers of the snowdrop anemone (Anemone sylvestris) impress with their whiteness and the pheasant’s eye (Adonis vernalis) nods with all its yellow flowers from the bright bushes. Rare Listera ovata hides itself under the green tent of oak groves. High in the sky, the booted eagle (Hieraaetus pennatus) and the lesser spotted eagle (Clanga pomarina) hover, looking for their prey. The stork walks loftily around the meadows.

Travellers come here not only to admire the nature, but also to take part in ethno-festivals and forums.
