Carpathian Mountains

Hiking trails in Ukraine are not always well marked and occasionally you will find yourself without a fixed path to walk on. Trekking in Ukraine is all about roughing it, so don't expect high-class facilities. Rather you can expect to camp during overnight hikes or if you are lucky, you will find space in one of the log cabins that dot the mountain sides. Many people opt to join an organized trek as the guide will be able to take you to some of the best spots, as well as keep you from getting lost. The best season for hiking in Ukraine is from late May to early June and in September and October. Rainstorms may be an issue during the summer months whilst August is the tourist month and gets a bit crowded for those seeking a quiet walk.

Bukovel ski resort

Bukovel ski resort is a new large ski resort in Ivano-Frankivsk oblast 30 km to the west of Yaremcha. It is Ukraine's first European-class resort, with a couple high-speed chair lifts, meticulously groomed slopes and snow-making machines, turnstyles for letting skiers through lines, and ubiquitous security personnel. It's unusual to see this degree of organization in Ukraine.Bukovel resort has been carefully planned to make skiing enjoyable and convenient and to avoid lift lines and congestion.Lift lines longer than five minutes are rare.

Vinnytsa Drama Theatre

For those speaking Ukrainian or Russian, a trip to the nationally recognized Vinnytsa Drama Theatre should be included in your visit. Tickets range from 10 hrv. to 300 hrv., depending on the show and the drama troupe.

Gorky Park

A welcome bit of green space in the summer, and a snowy, fairytale landscape in the winter, Gorky Park has something for everyone.There are benches to sit and relax for awhile, a pavilion to watch war veterans strategize over chess, a large play area for children, a grass hockey field, ice skating rink and even pavilions to sample local food and drink. Periodically, Gorky Park is host to city festivals and concerts.No admission fee.
