Rebra is situated in the central part of the Chornohora range.

The mountain’s appearance expressively witnesses the origin of its name. The local landscape really resembles human ribs.

Southern slopes are covered with grass, while steep ones – with crooked forests. Steep and rocky cliffs are typical for northern and northern-east slopes. Plenty of rare plants growing on the mountain are under protection.

The border between Poland and Czechoslovakia ran along the ridge between the mountains Rebra and Hutyn Tomnatyk. An attentive traveler can find columns and pieces of barbed wire which are witnesses of those times.

The nearest settlement is the village of Bystrets, Ivano-Frankivsk region.
