Mount Makovytsia, which rises above thick beech forests, is one of the highest and the most spectacular mountains within the Yaremche area. A cosy atmosphere of forest landscapes and traces of history hidden in remains of tranches interweave on the way to its top. Glorious local rebels called «opryshky» walked these trails. Heavy battles between Austrian-Hungarian and Russian troops, as well as the hardest fighting between German and Soviet soldiers of World Wars I and II also happened there. On the top of Makovytsia, a cross is installed in commemoration of the fallen heroes. According to one of the versions, the name of the mountain comes from the Ukrainian word «makivka», which means «top» or «summit». This version makes sense, as spectacular panoramic mountain landscapes of the Chornohora and the Horhany ranges open from its top.

Go on a hike to Makovytsia and enjoy the color of Carpathian landscapes!
