For our guests, we offer Bukovel Ski resort. It is a new large ski resort in the Ivano-Frankivsk oblast, 30 km southwest of Yaremche. It is Ukraine’s first European-class resort, with high-speed chair lifts, meticulously groomed slopes and snow-making machines, turnstiles for letting skiers through lines, and ubiquitous security personnel.
The modern Shevchenka Street is one of the oldest streets of Ivano-Frankivsk. It is known since the city has been founded in the 17th century. The traveler Ulrich von Werdum mentions that it led to the Zvirynetska grove where the Potocki family invited guests and hunted. Since then a lot has changed, the grove was transformed into a field, then — into a park, the street changed its name several times (the most famous names — Lypova and Shevchenka since 1961). There are 44 monuments on the street and one can spend up to three hours on a full pedestrian excursion.
This is a great offer for those wishing to take a delight in visiting Ivano-Frankivsk and go for this romantic tour itinerary that will drive you through the history of Stanyslaviv from its creation to the present times accompanied by murmur of centennial lindens. Here, in addition to visual perception, one needs to switch on imagination and consequently submerge into an incredible meeting with the past.

In Yaremche you should necessarily visit the waterfall Yaremchanskyi Huk, one of the biggest waterfalls on the Prut River. To get there it, you need to go from the highway to the bridge over the Prut River. In the mid-XIX cent., this waterfall was expanded by explosions and terrifying Prut beats the stone banks here, and enraged it rushes on from high ledges. Near the waterfall, in the traditional style of local folk architecture, stands the restaurant Hutsulshchyna, where you can be regaled to delicious hutsul dishes.
Nearby the Yaremchanskyi waterfall, in the town center, you can see the famous geological detachment over Prut. This is the 60-meter vertical rock flysch, which ends near the river. The rock forms the so-called Gothic folds — crumpled lamination edges of the upper chalk (absolute age is 60-75 million years).
Building of the Carpathian Regional Liberation Movement Museum is one of city’s most beautiful ones. Before 1993, the museum was named “Partisan Glory Museum”. With a new name came the necessity for new research of local history to ensure objective collection and representation of information.
The museum also houses an exhibit of paintings by famous Ukrainian and foreign artists. Several paintings in the collection were created by a well-known Ukrainian-Canadian artist Mykola Bidnyak, who was awarded the Shevchenko Prize in 1995.
Another exposition worth mentioning is named Metropolitan Sheptytsky Museum, and is based on the private collection of Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church missionary Reverend Yaroslav Svishchyuk.
This museum works in close cooperation with many artistic associations, regularly organizes art exhibitions, and provides researchers with valuable information on history of the liberation movement in the Yaremche area.
Yaremche has a number of historical and cultural landmarks. Among them are:
• Church of the Blessed Virgin Birth (XVIII century) in Vorokhta;
• Church of the Holy Trinity (XVII century) in Mykulychyn;
• Church of Saint Elijah in Dora village (XX century) that is part of Studite Monastery. The operation of this monastery was stopped in 1937 and was restored only when Ukraine gained its independence.
