While some travelers end up seeing only the most well-known cities, like Kiev and Odessa, Carpathian mountains in the west of Ukraine are by far one of the best natural attractions to visit. They are much wilder and less explored than those in the Central Europe. Here you can still see villagers riding horse carts, plowing the fields or making their own food. Hutsuls, as they call themselves, boast rich culture heritage – with plenty of artisans in each village. Carpathians are also a perfect spot for adventure travelers: mountain biking, trekking, rafting, caving or climbing.
