Ukraine - The Carpathians (Chapter)
This is the Carpathians chapter from Lonely Planet’s Ukraine guidebook.
The Carpathians are rural Ukraine at its best, where tiered wooden churches dot hillsides, horse-drawn carts clip-clop potholed roads, babushkas shoo geese, and marshrutka (fixed-price minibus) passengers cross themselves as they whizz past roadside chapels.
- set up base camp in Kolomyya to visit its museums and arrange hikes into the hills
- hire a two-wheeler to enjoy the ups and downs of Carpathian cycling trails created by the excellent Bikeland Project
- restaurants & accommodation
- wander the pastel-coloured heart of Ivano-Frankivsk, a pleasant gateway to the mountains
Coverage includes: Ivano-Frankivsk, Carpathian National Nature Park & around Yaremche, Tatariv, Bukovel, Vorokhta, Kolomyya, Kosiv, Sheshory, Verkhovyna, Yasinya, Rakhiv, Bukovyna, Chernivtsi, Khotyn, Transcarpathia, Uzhhorod and Mukacheve.
