Where can you rest in Ukraine during the war?

Help our volunteers who support Ukraine and all foreigners in the country 24/7

This year, the majority of Ukrainians were unable to realize their planned vacation due to the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation. However, many still hope to escape to more or less safe regions of Ukraine for at least a few days and distract themselves from sad thoughts. And just the beginning of autumn, when it's not so hot, but still not cold and relatively dry is a great time to travel.

We advise everyone who is planning a vacation to choose the Carpathians, Bukovyna or Halychyna. Rest in these regions can be the most diverse and will satisfy even the most demanding tourist.

Do you consider yourself a foodie?
Then we will offer you tours with the best gastronomic tastings of cheeses and exquisite national dishes, as well as tasting excellent vintage wines in the ancient cellars of Hutsul Region and Zakarpattia.

If you want real relaxation, then we invite you to relax in the thermal waters of the Carpathians. Pools, water slides, saunas and jacuzzis of thermal complexes will leave few people indifferent. And for those who want more relaxation, we offer bathing in a cauldron filled with mineral hydrogen sulfide water in Lumshory. Such rest helps to improve the musculoskeletal system and rejuvenates the body by ten years.

Are you lacking in drive?
Then you need to conquer the mountain peaks of the Frankivsk region! We will not hide that you will have to make a little effort, but as a result, you can find yourself on the highest peak of the Ukrainian Carpathians and the highest point of Ukraine – Mount Hoverla, the height of which is 2061 m above sea level. You can also climb to the top of Mount Bukovel (1115 m) with the help of a chairlift, which offers a wonderful panorama of Gorgan and the Black Mountain Range.

If you want to relieve stress, you need to go to the Carpathian reservoirs!
Lake Synevyr, popularly known as the "Eye of the Sea", will amaze you with its incredible beauty. You can also visit one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Ukraine - Shypit waterfall, which pours water from a height of 15 meters in many magical cascades between rocks into a picturesque mountain valley.

Do you lack cultural and historical monuments?
Then you won't mind visiting the castles of the Golden Horseshoe in the Lviv region. Oleskyi, Pidhoretskyi and Zolochivskyi castles will help you to enrich yourself spiritually and give you unforgettable impressions. We also offer you to appreciate the true grandeur of Khotynska and Kamianets-Podilska fortresses in Chernivtsi and Khmelnytskyi regions.

Well, if you miss an extreme vacation, then rafting will help you. Conquering the rapid current and rapids of a mountain river is a great way to spend time in the Carpathians. We invite you to test your strength, strengthen your health, escape from everyday life and just have a great time – Black Cheremosh will help you with this!
