Bukovel Skiing Resort Paradise in The Carpathian Mountains in Ukraine

Hey friends, let me tell you what I liked most in my recent visit to Bukovel, I was in Bukovel for one week, end of March 2018 in Ukraine. It is, in fact, Ukraine’s only major ski resort. It is true to say that there has been rapid uneven development of the resort and the region. If you ask me ‘hey where is it located?’ I would say, well mate, it is just 240 Kilometres from Lviv west of Ukraine. We Travelled by Night Train From Kiev.

As stated above Bukovel Ski field is conveniently located in the beautiful Carpathian Mountain. What is more? Oh yes, it is a home to Ukraine’s most distinct subcultures, the Hutsuls.

As Christianity began its influence in the region it started to get blended with beliefs of the pagans.

The pagan beliefs were associated with observation of nature. Let me make a general statement about Hutsul culture.

Bukovel History & The Culture Diversity 

Well.. it is known for woodcraft, folk art, rural life and an intimate communion with nature. Hoverla which is 2061 metres high is the highest peak in Ukraine. Happily, it is located in the Carpathians.

It is modest in height. The Carpathians are steeped in history though.The Cucuteni-Trypillian culture which dates back to 5500 B.C. to 2750 B.C.

It had human settlements. That is to say, up to 15000 people and rivals Mesopotamia’s claim as the cradle of human civilisation – yes, the very origin of civilisation.

The mountains belonging to the past on either side of the narrow, shoulderless road which lead to the resort.
