Have you ever been to Ukraine? I am sure that trip is among the brightest in your life. Haven't you ever been to Ukraine? You certainly should visit this beautiful country. What is that special about Ukraine? Over 500 cities of Ukraine were founded more than 900 years ago, 4500 villages are more than 300 years old. More than 150 thousands monuments of culture, history, archeology reflect the remarkable history of the Ukrainian people.
At the same time Ukraine's excellent climate and scenic nature are perfect conditions for those who would like to escape from a stuffy city closer to nature. The Mediterranean climate of the Black Sea and Crimea is ideal for rock climbing, diving, mountaineering, hiking, and mountain biking, and even skiing. Everybody from 8 to 80 years old can find his own route of any complicity on the Crimean Peninsula.
But perhaps real adventure one can find in Ukrainian Carpathians Mountains. Most of us are the big city kids. But from time to time we experience great temptation to escape from our every day routine and once again to remember taste of clear water, to enjoy unspoiled nature, to listen to sounds of the mountain streams and the birds singing. No wonder that rural or green tourism becomes so popular.
Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains are a heaven for the rural tourism. Bordering four European countries, this area of Ukraine has managed to save its unspoiled nature and ethnic originality. Does it sound too good to be true? Fortunately it is true for now. Everybody can find his/her special place there to feel happy any season of the year.
During the winter time Transcarpathia offers its visitors skiing, sledding, and snow boarding. The warm season is really amazing in Carpathians. You can choose whatever you wish: backpacking, biking, fishing, hunting, horse riding, rafting, wine and mineral water tasting, bathing in the curative salt lakes, and so on. If you consider all these adventure travel possibilities as hard work, you have another choice. Take your favorite drink, sit in the tree shade and just watch, listen and breathe. You will come back home as a new person after visiting the West Ukraine area.
