About park

Those who have ever been to this park won’t be able to forget the majestic breathtaking landscapes of the Dniester River. This river has seen a good deal in its million-year long lifetime. There, the Neanderthals made their bonfires, the early Slavs prayed to their gods near the stone sacrificial well, the Cossacks gained victory in the Battle of Khotyn, and the multinational population of Prydnisteria (banks of the Dniester River) celebrated the independence of Ukraine.

The beauty of the Dniester Meanders – sinuous curves of the river, and covered with forest steep slopes of the Dniester Canyon, a natural wonder of Ukraine – make your heart beat faster. The canyon depth in some particular areas amounts to 150-200 meters. Certain parts of rocks resemble Swiss cheese – it is covered with holes from caves and grottoes orifices. The unique Shumylo waterfall is a purely local Bukovyna paradox; just imagine – a water flow falling down a waterfall cascade with total height of 34 meters.

For mushroom hunting lovers there more than 100 species of edible mushrooms during the year and even in winter! A fisherman will not always be able to spread arms wide enough to show the length of the catfish caught.
