Resting in the city of Yaremche, In addition to a large number of restaurants serving traditional Hutsul cuisine, you should definitely visit the cheese dairy of the Polonyna Makovytsia farm to taste locally produced cheeses. The Polonyna farm is located on the slope of one of the highest peaks in the region, Mount Makovytsia.
Here, the caring owners raise a special Carpathian breed of sheep and produce sheep cheese according to the ancient traditions of the Hutsuls.
