Winter is the most fabulous time of the year. It’s time of miracles and fulfillment of desires. Winter is a time for family gatherings and unforgettable holidays. St. Nicholas Day, Polish and Ukrainian Christmas, New Year… These days, everyone’s most secret dreams can come true. These holidays make us kinder and with good comes the happiness we all so long for.

You can rest in TAOR Karpaty Resort & Spa all year round and you will not be bored, because every month at least one grand holiday is prepared for you!

In winter, we begin with Andrew’s evening parties “vechornytsi” with girls’ divinations and master classes. A cycle of traditional winter holidays continues with  the New Year, Christmas, the Generous Evening and the Epiphany. We adhere to all the customs of the Ukrainian people and our region. St.Valentine’s Day and Shrove-tide complete the winter fairy tale.

A fragrant spring brings us All Women’s Day in March, April Fools’ Day and Days of Harmony with Nature in May. We certainly celebrate Easter as the greatest holiday of the year.

In June we celebrate Children’s Day with child program and the Constitution Day with a history quiz and cornflour gruel “kulish”. The main holiday in July is Ivan Kupala, which we organize near our complex. We know how to capture our guests’ attention by weaving the crowns and launching  them on the water, jumping through the fire and, most importantly – performing on a river bank! August presents Savior of the Apple Feast Day and the Ukraine’s Independence Day.

A golden autumn begins with September, full of mushrooms. October brings us our unique and atmospheric Beer Festival. The most mysterious Pumpkin Feast, or in other words the Carpathian Halloween, will necessarily be celebrated. And the most romantic of all is the Sweet November, which will warm you up with French wine and charming saxophone. A nice discount on the “Romantic Package for Two” will become a pleasant bonus for you.
