Verkhovyna National Nature Park

Ivano-Frankivsk region

About park

You should visit the park if you want to slow down. Watch as the sun hides behind the towering mountains, as the crowns of trees merge with the sky, as the stream flows into an unstoppable waterfall. Listen to the wind and look at every detail of landscapes that seem to be painted.

 

Verkhovyna National Nature Park is the most remote and hard-to-reach part of the Ukrainian Carpathians. Therefore, here you can see natural landscapes that have been forming for millions of years. This is the only place where the oldest metamorphic formations come to the surface, covered by Palaeozoic and Mesozoic sedimentary cover. On the slopes of the ridges, there are outcrops of Jurassic limestone boulders creating exotic landscapes. Here, the most valuable virgin forests and subalpine meadows grow, and the sources of the Bilyi and Chornyi Cheremosh Rivers are located.

 

Verkhovyna is the centre of Hutsul culture. Easter eggs painting, making musical instruments, weaving, wood carving are widespread here. You will be able not only to see the products, but also to meet folk artists and try to create something yourself. And in winter you should visit the impressive Christmas celebration.

 

There are many museums here: of Hutsul culture, cheese making, bed-cover (lizhnyk) making, trembita player… The house-museum of the “Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors” film attracts special attention. There are many other historical and cultural sites that are worth seeing.
