The place where the weather is made
Mount Hoverla is the highest peak of the Ukrainian Carpathians and the highest point in Ukraine, with a height of 2,061 m (1.28 mi).
The first tourist route here was opened in 1880, and the mountain already has its own tradition: starting from July 16, 1990, when the Declaration on State Sovereignty of Ukraine was signed, at the top of the mountain the national flag is raised every year. This is a reminder to everyone who looks at our land with malicious intent.
In June 2018, Dmytro Kotov, a veteran of the war in Eastern Ukraine, became the first person to conquer the peak of Hoverla on two prosthetic legs, because nothing is impossible for Ukrainian heroes.
Do you know how a lake can affect the weather? This is one of the highest lakes in the Ukrainian Carpathians, Nesamovyte, located 1750 m (1.09 mi) above sea level. If you bathe or throw a stone into the lake, you can cause terrible rain. But don’t do that. In general, it is better to behave quietly and politely in the mountains.
Although there is a place in the Ukrainian Carpathians that lives as a real ski resort – Bukovel, at the foot of the Bukovets mountain. Visitors sometimes make noise here, but still, it is better to behave quietly and politely in the mountains. Believe me, they will thank you.
