The State Agency for Tourism Development has applied to include five Ukrainian villages in the 2024 edition of The Best Tourism Villages network. 

Belonging to this prestigious global network provides many benefits for the development of tourism in the region, attracting travelers from all over the world, receiving mentoring support from UN Tourism and even financial assistance from foreign donors for the development of tourism in rural areas.

The Best Tourist Villages competition was launched by UN Tourism in 2021. Since then, 190 tourist villages have joined the network. There are no representatives from Ukraine on the list yet.

Villages that are leaders in rural development and preservation of landscapes, cultural diversity, local values, and culinary traditions can become members of the network.


In our previous article, we told you that in mid-June, Dobropark will turn into a real lavender paradise. Visitors will be able to enjoy the flowering, take beautiful photos at the equipped locations, buy flowers and lavender souvenirs.

Details of the participation of Ukrainian villages in the UN competition The Best Tourism Villages 2024


A special commission from DART submitted 9 applications for participation in this competition. By unanimous vote of all members of the commission, five villages were selected as the most prestigious tourist destinations in Ukraine's rural areas. Let's take a closer look at the list of participants.

1. Vorokhta is a mountain village at the foot of Hoverla. Its most popular tourist attractions are the viaduct and numerous ski resorts;
