A few posts ago, we have seen the Ukrainian Carpathians in summer and now let’s go back in cold and snowy winter.
In general, winters in the Ukrainian Carpathians are not severe, the sun shines often and the weather is clear. Average winter temperatures in the mountains are 10-15 degrees Celsius below zero, sometimes it is very cold (up to 30 degrees below zero).
Let’s for a moment run away from the cold and often overcast winter weather that prevails in Ukraine these days, and return to a warm and bright summer.
