Natural attractions of Ivano-Frankivsk region

The Carpathian National Nature Park in the upper part of the Prut River Basin, founded in 1980, is the largest (the area of ​​503.03 km 2 ) nature reserve of the Ukrainian Carpathians. An extremely picturesque and popular path to the foot of the Goverla Mountain (the highest point of Ukraine - 2061 m), located on the border of the region with Transcarpathia, runs from Vorokhta.

According to the Carpathian unwritten tradition, the picturesque cliffs of the region are named after the legendary national hero Oleksa Dovbush. In Ivano-Frakivshchyna, the most famous of the Dovbush rocks are located near the village of Bubnishche and the famous resort town of Yaremche. Pillar rocks are composed of very dense sandstones that formed at the bottom of the sea about 60 million years ago. During the formation of the Carpathians, tectonic processes broke them into large blocks and raised them to their current place, where water, wind and the sun limited this natural phenomenon.
