Departure from Lviv (07:00) / Stryi (08:00)
We make a stop for photographing and viewing the Carpathian panoramas. Mezhigorsky (Synevyrsky), whose height is 960 meters above sea level, is the most picturesque pass of the Ukrainian Carpathians. From the pass you can see for tens of kilometers in different directions how the strands of mountains overlap each other and are covered with the blueness of the sky. The Synevyr Pass is rightfully considered the gateway to the plains of Transcarpathia.
Visit Synevyr National Park
Transition to Lake Synevyr
Synevyr Lake is considered the pearl of the Carpathians and is the most interesting object of the Synevyr National Park. Its water mirror has an area of 4-5 hectares, the average depth ranges from 8 to 10 meters, and the maximum reaches 24 meters. Synevyr lake has the shape of a distorted quadrangle – small capes form insignificant bays. In the middle of the reservoir, like the pupil of a huge blue eye, there is a small island with an area of only a few meters. That’s where the popular name came from – Morskie Oko. The shores of Lake Synevyr are steep, and in some places even steep. Centennial fir and spruce trees grow around the reservoir.
Free time for lunch
Rehabilitation center for brown bears
The rehabilitation center for brown bears Synevyr is a place where animals learn to live again, adapt to new, but normal conditions from the point of view of nature. It is here that the bears manage to forget about the bad, one might say, cruel treatment on the part of a person, and gradually adjust to a new life for themselves. The center in the Transcarpathian region is the largest target project in Europe, which was created with the direct participation of the state and people who are not indifferent to this problem.
Mezhhirya. Ascent by chairlift to Mount Makovitsa
On Mezhgorye there is an opportunity to admire the mountains from the ski lift. We offer you to look at Mount Makovitsa, whose height reaches almost 1 kilometer. Incredible views await you. The place is not yet too popular and known to tourists, so it is not very crowded here.
