Pushcha-Vodytsya is a historical place and a climatic resort located mainly in pine forests in the north-western part of Kyiv. This locality got its name from the word “pushcha” (a dense, impenetrable forest) and the Vodytsya River, which no longer exists.

Today, it is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the capital of Ukraine. You can find a cascade of lakes with sandy beaches, boat and catamaran rental stations, as well as shops and ATMs here. Pushcha-Vodytsya is connected to Kyiv by a unique historical tram line running through the forest, which makes it probably the most scenic tram line in Ukraine. Pushcha-Vodytsya on Google Maps.

Unpredictable spring weather of the Carpathians

In early May, the weather in the Ukrainian Carpathians can be very changeable. It would seem that winter has long ended, snow has completely melted, green grass and flowering trees are everywhere.

And one night it suddenly snows and winter comes back, even if only for one day. Thanks to this relatively unusual natural phenomenon, you can see very picturesque views of the Carpathians, when snow clearly shows the smallest folds of the relief. Photos by: Vlad Sokolovsky.
