Belaya Skala (White Rock) or Aq-Qaya is a vertical white rocky wall in Crimea, located near the village of Belaya Skala. The height of the cliff is 100 meters. This natural monument was created by erosion and weathering of the limestones and sandstones.
Almost all the inhabitants of the former USSR, as well as many people in the former socialist countries saw this beautiful landscape at least once because most movies about Indians and the American Wild West, shot in the Soviet era, included scenes filmed near this rock. Photos by: Yuri Yuhanson.

Uzhhorod is a relatively small city with a population of about 100,000 people located in the west of Ukraine, the capital of Zakarpattia region. Due to the fact that Uzhhorod has a wide variety of green spaces, it is often called “the garden city”.
This is particularly evident, if you come to Uzhhorod in the middle of spring, when sakura and apple trees blossom in the streets. Most often, this period begins during the second half of April. Photos by: uzh_city.

This beautiful video was filmed on Pip Ivan Mountain (2,020 meters) – one of the highest peaks of Chornohora mountain range of the Ukrainian Carpathians, located in the south-eastern end of the mountain range, on the border of the Ivano-Frankivsk region and Zakarpattia region regions.
Chernohora is the highest ridge in the Ukrainian Carpathians and Chernaya Gora, also known as Pip Ivan, is one of the highest of its vertices (2,020 meters).

Gorgany is a system of mountain ranges extending up to 75 km in the outer band of the Ukrainian Carpathians, in the Ivano-Frankivsk and Zakarpattia regions. The width from east to west is about 40 km.
The name comes from the name of rock slides called “gorgan”. The highest peak is Mount Syvulia (1836 m). This area is very popular among tourists, here you can find the most wild routes in the Carpathians.
In the Carpathians the haymaking period usually begins in June and ends in September. At this time of the year, almost every picture taken here has amazing color transitions – from bright green to burning-orange.
It’s like a carpet of different shades which covers the slopes of the Carpathians. And of course Carpathian haystacks add a special charm. Photos by: Sergiy Kotko.
