The unique for Ukraine rehabilitation centres for brown bears and birds of prey are open for visitors. In the wild, in addition to bears, you can also meet wolves, lynx, deer and roe deer. There, the capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) and hazel grouse (Tetrastes bonasia) nest in the spruce-fir forests, the black and white storks (Ciconia ciconia & nigra) land on the peatlands, and the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) hover high in the sky.
You should also come to the Synevyr Park to explore the Carpathian soul — the local culture. There you will see the tools of timber raftsmen in the Timber Rafting Museum which is the only one in Europe and the second in the world. You will learn the lifestyle and traditions of the tercentenary antiquity in the Old Village Museum and observe the defensive bunkers of the Arpad Line used by the Hungarian army during World War II.
