The preserve of Dovbush Rocks

Stryi Bolekhiv Hoshiv Dovbush Rocks

The purpose of this trip is the Preserve of "Dovbush Rocks" located in the Carpathian Mountains, which is supposed to be one of the seven wonders of Ukraine. The high cliffs on the background of forest and mountains form a picturesque mountain scenery. These rocks have been used in ancient times to build a rock fortress and guard fortifications. On our way from Lviv to the Carpathian Preserve we visit several Galician towns and a monastery in Hoshiv. The first one is the city of Stryi, which attracts tourists with a plenty of architectural and historical monuments. Narrow winding streets are leading us to the city center, where we examine one of the oldest Gothic churches - Catholic Church of the Nativity of Mary (1395).

Next stop on the way to the Dovbush Rocks is a provincial town Bolekhiv with
pretty houses and a perfect miniature pink town hall. On our way we visit Hoshiv
Monastery, famous by the miraculous icon of Our Lady - "Queen of the Carpathians".
Then we pass through the village of Tysiv, area where the future opera singer Salomea Krushelnytska used to spend her summer when she was a child. In this village a monument to prima donna was placed next to the church where her father served as a priest.
