Preservation of the Ukrainian Carpathians through Sustainable Development

Our Park occupies almost a third of the territory of Yaremche, Vorokhta and Verkhovyna amalgamated territorial communities. These are 10 settlements where about 35,000 people live.

The resource potential of the Park is rich in unique beech and fir virgin forests, flora and fauna (including endemic and endangered species), favorable climate, healing natural springs, extremely productive Carpathian bees, as well as sacred architecture, Hutsul folklore and handicrafts.

The main goal of our Park in the context of sustainable development is an effective use of biological, landscape diversity, natural and cultural heritage in order to improve social and economic development and achieve high environmental standards.
