Yavoriv National Nature Park

Lviv region

About park

Roztochia is a symbolic place from which various streams and rivers flow into different directions across Podillia, Polissia and the Carpathians to the Black Sea and the Baltic Sea. One of its most interesting parts is the hills which belong to the main European watershed the treasures of which are protected by the Yavoriv National Nature Park.

 

There you can see the drowsy spring forests and a periwinkle (Vinca) flower carpet beneath your feet amidst ancient beeches, as well as pine, beech and oak forests which are found only in Roztochia and Crimea. Fascinating birds stop at ponds to rest on their way of endless migrations. The offspring of wild tarpan horses (Equus ferus ferus) are bred in the park.

 

The Krekhiv shrines and Mount Stradetska are located nearby surrounded by hills of beech and pine forests of Roztochia. Prayers uttered there are special. There are small hamlets nearby where folk craftsmen will teach you how to paint “verbivka” on the famous Yavoriv toy. This is the place where history is cherished – there are several museums where you can get acquainted with historical findings. Let’s get our journey started!
