Yaremche is the most popular tourist destination of the Carpathians. The town founded more than five hundred years ago and it had seen many historical pages. Yaremche located in the valley of the Prut River at an altitude of 585 m above sea level. The population of Yaremche is 7,850 people. Beautiful nature, clean air, and picturesque valley of the Prut River are the main attraction of Yaremche. The town is surrounded by the Horhany mountains, whose name originates from the mountains spreading on the tops and slopes of ridges. Even in Austro-Hungarian times, Yaremche was a popular resort. Now there are tourist centers, health centers, preventive clinics, rest homes and camps for children, motels, private care homes both in the town and on its outskirts. In winter you can ski or sleigh on the slopes of the nearest resorts –; Bukovel, Vorokhta, Yablunytsia, Drahobrat.

The town’s the main attraction is the Probiy waterfall. It is certainly not the highest (it is only 8 meters – 26 feet – high), but it is the most powerful and picturesque waterfall in all the Ukrainian Carpathians. The torrents of the Prut River, which find their way through the stones, create an unforgettable show, which you can watch from a small footbridge that crosses the river.

Not far from the waterfall lies a well-known souvenir market, which has already become one of Yaremche’s most popular attractions. Here you can buy traditional souvenirs: vyshyvanka (the Ukrainian traditional clothing which contains elements of Ukrainian ethnic embroidery), national hats, belts, unique wooden jewellery boxes. Gutsul wool coverlet (liznyk) made of natural wool or warm slippers from the same material would be a good present for your friends. Please note that all products are handmade by an old technology and from natural materials.

Near the waterfall, in the traditional style of local folk architecture, stands the restaurant Hutsulshchyna, where you can be regaled to delicious hutsul dishes.

Dovbush rocks. It is an awe-inspiring mound of boulders whose peak is 80 meters high. It was created 70 million years ago at the bottom of a sea, and it truly resembles a fictional marine creature in its fanciful shape. A mysterious cave hides in the rocks, where, legends say, a band of local bounty hunters used to hide. The leader of these Carpathian militiamen (called “oprishki” in Ukranian) was Oleksa Dovbush, for whom the rocks were eventually named. This wonderful place attracts not only curious travelers, but also hikers and rock climbers.
