What exactly to look at?
When planning a busy program in the Carpathians, do not miss:
- • Gorgany Nature Reserve. A corner of nature, almost untouched by man. Located in the heart of the Carpathians. Although the reserve was finally established only in 1996, its history began in 1935. Here is a unique influence for researchers of the Wurm ice age, which led to the emergence of specific landscapes, flora and fauna. In some places, even the original Arctoalpine vegetation has been preserved, and in the forest zone there is a natural massif of European cedar pine, the only one in Europe.
- • Enchanted Land National Nature Park. Young, since 2009, a rapidly developing reserve. Created for the preservation and reproduction of natural complexes of the Eastern Carpathians. In addition to its aesthetic and environmental role, it has important scientific and recreational significance. On the territory – the river Borzhava and unique wetlands with beech forests. Another feature is the unique rock landscapes and biodiversity.
- • Black Mountain Reserve. It consists of eight parts: five forests, two mountains and one valley. The border of the reserve is practically adjacent to the borders of Hungary and Romania. Area – more than 820 hectares. Black Mountain itself is a unique natural phenomenon with an absolute plain at an altitude of 560 meters. It is believed that its origin is due to the eruption of the volcano more than a thousand years ago. Here is the Valley of Daffodils.
This is only a small part of what is possible! Be sure to visit the high and picturesque Shipit waterfall, the mountain eye – Lake Synevyr, the world-famous souvenir market Yaremche, the unique rocks of Dovbush, the colorful Valley of Daffodils, the only one of its kind. Also, do not miss the numerous castles and ruins: Palanok Castle, Tustan Fortress, Nevytsky and Serednyansky castles, etc.
The choice of natural attractions is not limited at all. Among the well-known protected areas are the Carpathian Biosphere Reserve, the Skole Beskydy National Park, and regional nature parks. In addition, every corner of the Carpathians is in fact a monument in itself. Just stop and look in all directions!
