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.
