Peaks of the Lviv Region: Parashka Mountain

The mountain went into history by dramatic events of the Kyiv Rus period, when descendants of Volodymyr the Great were fighting for the throne. According to the legend, Princess Paraska was killed just here, following the battle between two sons of Volodymyr the Great. This historical turmoil echoes in the name of the mountain. It was also the place of fierce battles during World War II. Today it is a favourite destination for many tourists due to amazing landscapes are seen from the ridge of the mountain.

The Mysteries of Skolivski Beskydy: around Lopata Mountain

The Mysteries of Skolivski Beskydy: around Lopata Mountain

Lopata Mountain is a beautiful peak in Skolivski Beskydy, one of the closest Carpathian ranges around Lviv. A walk to Lopata, with a relatively easy ascent and steep descent, is an enjoyable exercise for a day out. The peak used to be the epicenter of military clashes: one can still see the remains of WWI trenches there. Later, during the WWII, these fortifications were used by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) in their victorious battle against the Nazi troops. On the Lopata walk, we will also see two interesting hydrological sites of the Lviv region: Kamyanka waterfall and Zhuravlyne Lake, also known as Dead Lake due to the high levels of hydrogen sulfide in the water.

The Mysteries of Skolivski Beskydy: the ridge of Kliuch Mountain

The Mysteries of Skolivski Beskydy: the ridge of Kliuch Mountain

The ridge of Kliuch mountain is not as high as the other mountain ranges in Skolivski Beskydy, and for that reason it is sometimes considered as not a too attractive destination for the experienced hillwalkers. Which might be true if you don’t know what to look for: the place is full of exciting geological sites. The lengthy but easy walk will lead you to Polyanytske Lake, the picturesque tectonic canyon-like rift, and rocky groups nicknamed Stonehenge and Easter Island. The ridge is also known as a WWI battle place.

A Journey To Hutsuls, Ukrainians Who Live On The Wild Side

A Journey To Hutsuls, Ukrainians Who Live On The Wild Side

The starting point of your travel is Lviv, the biggest city in Western Ukraine, and the center of the historical region of Galicia with beautiful architecture and rich history. Being a medieval fortress on the crossroads of many transcontinental trade routes, Lviv (also known as Leopolis, Lemberg or Lwów) was a melting pot for many cultures, like Ukrainian, Polish, German, Armenian, Austrian, Jewish, Italian, and many more. They all left their legacies, which create unique atmosphere of contemporary Lviv. You’ll proceed to the Carpathian mountains, to the Hutsul region. This journey to the wild side of Ukraine will take you back in time!
Hutsuls are one of the Ukrainian ethnic groups who inhabited the Carpathians. Living in desolate mountain areas, they preserved their long-time traditions, handicrafts and way of life. We will visit Hutsul sheep shepherds, who still keep their ancestors’ lifestyle. We will make Hutsul traditional handicrafts such as pottery, blankets weaving and woodcarving. We will see traditional Hutsul wooden architecture which is on the UNESCO world heritage list. And we’ll indulge ourselves with traditional local cuisine. All that will be happening in the breathtaking landscapes of the Carpathian Mountains.
