The mountain went into history by dramatic events of the Kyiv Rus period, when descendants of Volodymyr the Great were fighting for the throne. According to the legend, Princess Paraska was killed just here, following the battle between two sons of Volodymyr the Great. This historical turmoil echoes in the name of the mountain. It was also the place of fierce battles during World War II. Today it is a favourite destination for many tourists due to amazing landscapes are seen from the ridge of the mountain.

Sakura Viewing and Wine Tasting in Uzhgorod

The transient and fragile beauty of spring flowers has inspired the Japanese for over a thousand years. Ancient Japanese tradition to admire blossoming cherry, or sakura, trees has found its way into Ukraine. The mild climate of sunny Zakarpattya region is favourable for whimsical sakuras and for winemaking as well, making the region a famous wine destination in Ukraine. That is why we offer to combine the contemplation of flowers with the tasting of local wines. The Schoenborn Palace and the collection of Uzhgorod city mini-sculptures complement the program of this one-day tour.

A Journey To Hutsuls, Ukrainians Who Live On The Wild Side

The starting point of your travel is Lviv, the biggest city in Western Ukraine, and the center of the historical region of Galicia with beautiful architecture and rich history. You’ll proceed to the Carpathian mountains, to the Hutsul region. This journey to the wild side of Ukraine will take you back in time!

Hutsuls are one of the Ukrainian ethnic groups who inhabited the Carpathians. Living in desolate mountain areas, they preserved their long-time traditions, handicrafts and way of life. We will visit Hutsul sheep shepherds, who still keep their ancestors’ lifestyle. We will make Hutsul traditional handicrafts such as pottery, blankets weaving and woodcarving. We will see traditional Hutsul wooden architecture which is on the UNESCO world heritage list. And we’ll indulge ourselves with traditional local cuisine. All that will be happening in the breathtaking landscapes of the Carpathian Mountains.

Although the travelling time took around 6 hours in total, the hiking experience was good. The views were pretty good. Our tour guide Valentin sent us warm reminders in advance, keeping close contact with us. He also has good english so that we didn’t have any communication problem.

For sure, you need good hiking shoes, because some interceptions of the mostly steep trails were rocky and slightly slippery and: you will master 800 meters of altitude difference. There were breaks during the ascent and descent. These were very useful to calm the pulse. But the hiking tour to Mount Pikuy is not only a challenge for your physical fitness. It is also a great chance to take gorgeous photos of the panorama views from the top of Mount Pikuy and the ridge. And it is quite probable that you meet other hikers. Valentyn, the tour guide, was were attentive and offered delicious Ukrainian sausages and vegetables for lunch at Mount Pikuy. We started at 8 a.m. and were back at 8 p.m. It takes about 2,5 hrs from Lviv to Bilasovytsya, the starting point of the ascent. Be aware of possibly strong winds around Mount Pikuy.

This is a lovely family run agency with professional, knowledgeable guides and fantastic customer service. Even though no other travelers had signed up for the Parashka trip (poor weather), they took me along with a couple guides in training. I learned more in that day about the area and mountains than on any other similar hike Ive done elsewhere in the world. After the hike, they did an impromptu stop for me to see a cave monastery. Their warmth and genuineness made it feel like a family outing The communication before and after the hike (reminding me to check for ticks!) was stellar. I had the pleasure of traveling with owner Teras and his equally well informed and capable English speaking guide Nazar. I am planning on returning to do a multi-day with them in the further reaches of the Carpathians. I would highly recommend staying a day or two more in Lviv to do an excursion with them.

It was a great hike, but pretty difficult. It was labelled as an intermediate difficulty, but for someone who is in decent shape, office worker and hasnt done much hikes it can be a challenge. The trail that we went though had torny brambles, 45° slopes, and can be kind of chilly towards the top which is about a mile straight up. I do think its intermediate level, but i also wore some vaans sneakers which wasnt ideal and may have injured my knee through the descent. This is all to say its still worth it, there is a challenge and a reward of nature. the only down side was a bunch of loud teens at the top which, to me, ruined the tranquility.

This summer we went to Karpaty. It is wonderful place. You enjoy it. Fresh air, beautiful view, great mountains and local traditions make this region interesting for trips. We stayed in small village Lazeshina and went to Solotvino, Bukovel, Yaremcha. We saw mountains revers, waterfall, small houses on big or small hills. The weather was change. Every day was rainy and sunny. So we took raincoat when we went for a walk. We excited our trip.
