Key landmarks

1

Spas-Busovysko

Spas - Sokolov stone. An outstanding place, which for its beauty and strategic importance, was chosen by the King of Russia Lev Danylovych as a favorite place of rest and construction of a castle on the mountain. A cathedral and a monastery were built in the village, of which only the escarpment remains. The greatest decoration of Spas is now a geological attraction of nature - the rock "Sokolov Kamen" (other names are "Spassky Kamen" or even "Devil's Kamen"), which is located on a low mountain in the middle of the picturesque spruce-beech Carpathians. These are three stone remnants of the Yamna sandstone, rising above the trees and from afar resembling the ruins of a castle, the tallest of which is 25 meters tall.

Rozluch

The famous balneologist resort meets the saved from oblivion, rare in Ukraine wooden church of St. Francisca (1901) and a source of healing soda mineral water.

Turk

This picturesque Carpathian town, apart from its natural beauty, is unique in that it has 29 different bridges. In Turke, you can also visit the Church of the Assumption (XVIII century), a synagogue (XIX century) and the "Boykovshchyna" museum, which has a good collection of items from the folk life of the Ukrainian highlanders - Boykov. To see the beautiful views of Turku and see the turquoise water among the rocky Carpathian Mountains, you should go up to the Turku quarry, located under the Kycheroi mountain.
