Detailed description of tour:
Kolomiya is one of the most interesting towns in Western Ukraine. It is called the capital of the Hutsul and Pokuttya tribal communities. It is compared with the bird-Phoenix, because each time after Mongol invasion (5 times it was utterly destroyed) was restored, becoming stronger and more attractive.
In the times of the Austrian-Hungarian empire, Kolomiya was the center of cultural life in Western Ukraine. And nowadays it has everything to be proud of giving us the opportunity to explore the historical past. The museums of this town are among the best in Ukraine.
Yaremche village is called the pearl of the Carpathians. It sits on the pristine Prut river and nearby you will see the magnificent waterfall Probiy. We’ll take a look at the magnificent outcrop of massive sandstone boulders. For those interested in the last tribal culture of Europe, you will be intrigued by the Museum of ethnography and ecology of the Carpathians. Mountain names surrounding Yaremche from the south and south-west - Yavirnyk spine, from the west - Schyvka, Chornohorytsya, Synyachka, and the east - Makovytsya. Dora village (on the outskirts of Yaremche) is called the Carpathians “doors” with Prut river commencing between two mountain peaks – Makovytsia and Chornohorytsia. This town is a unique Hutsul capital, a Jerusalem for the Hutsul people. In Dora, which has about three thousand inhabitants, there are some unique and ornate churches. Coming from the Orthodox faith, they contain glorious icons and wooden carvings.
