Most famous Kosiv springs

Kosiv springs are extremely popular in summer. As a result of global warming, water in local wells disappears at this time. Therefore, spring water becomes a real salvation for hundreds of local residents. Another reason for the popularity of Kosiv springs is the extraordinary softness of their water. The fact is that in Kosiv and the Kosiv region, the water is mostly very hard and has a chalky sediment that is harmful to the kidneys.

Kosiv spring “Krynchysta”

The Krynchysta spring is considered the most famous and popular in Kosiv.

There is an old legend associated with this spring. It tells the story of a forester’s daughter. An extremely beautiful forester fell in love at first sight with a local boy who was walking along a forest path. But the handsome tall boy refused to reciprocate her love because his heart was already taken. He sharply replied to the forester that his beloved had a heart, but she did not. After that, the forester’s daughter asked the earth to take her unfortunate lover to her. The earth swallowed the beautiful forester into its jungle, and she still continues to shed bitter tears, from which the healing mineral spring Krynchysta appeared.

The fact is that the young man called the forest itself kryn. The locals used to call white lilies kryn. It is believed that water from this spring will help you find true love. The water even contains gold. According to another version, the name of the spring is an abbreviation of the name “Chysta Krynytsia”.

It is quite easy to get to Krynchysta. You should start from Druzhby Street in Kosiv. This spring is located near the Golitsa ridge at an altitude of 500 metres. Local residents built a chapel near the spring at their own expense. On the route to the spring, there are comfortable benches for resting. The road along the forest paths to Krynchysta is extremely picturesque. Framed by mighty beeches, hornbeams, birches, oaks, spruces, pines and larch trees, this path forms a picturesque green corridor. A walk along it, even on the hottest days, allows you to enjoy the coolness of shady trees with fresh forest air.

This mineral spring is also located under the Holytsia ridge. To get to it, you should also start your journey from Druzhby Street. You should look for the newly built orange multi-storey building. In 2022, the route to this spring was marked in blue. The road to the spring “Pid Holytsia”, or as it is also called “Churkalo”, runs past the picturesque Kosiv ponds, which are one of the favourite photo zones for tourists. Then the path passes next to the “forest church” with a bell. Along the way, you can admire the incredible view of the city of Kosiv with its City (Castle) Mountain and the neighbouring settlements of Smodnya and Staryi Kosiv.

Next to the spring, there is a green chapel and an original wooden bench where you can relax and enjoy the taste of cold spring water.

The chapel of the Mother of God next to the spring was built by Moskalivka resident Ivan Baraniuk in 2014, and its consecration and renovation was carried out thanks to the efforts of the Hutsulshchyna National Park employees.

Around this spring there is a picturesque beech forest, which is a great place to pick mushrooms.

The spring “Pid Holytsia” (“Churkalo”) is not as well known as “Krynchysta”. Even the people of Kosiv are often unaware of its existence. But its water tastes just as good, and the absence of crowds of tourists makes it a calm and pleasant place to visit.

Kosiv Silver Spring “Popid Kamen”

Another interesting spring in Kosiv is the “Popid Kamen”. It is located under Mount Chemlash, near the top of Sopka, in a picturesque high stone canyon. You should go to it from Lisova Street. The water in this spring is very tasty and always cold. However, even in the most severe frosts, this spring never freezes. This spring is also called “silver” because its water has a high content of this noble metal.

There is a table and a place for a fire next to the spring. Tourists like to organise picnics here. The picturesque beech forest around the spring is a great place to pick mushrooms.

Kosiv hydrogen sulphide spring

A wonderful mineral water spring is located near the top of Mount Sopka (Zinyakov Verkh, Stizhky). The water is of the hydrogen sulphide type and has numerous healing properties. The route to the hydrogen sulphide water is more difficult and longer compared to other Kosiv springs. You should start this route from Nad Hukom Street, next to the Karpatski Zori sanatorium.

The trail to the spring is marked with white and green markings and goes uphill almost all the time. On the way to the hydrogen sulphide spring, you should stop from time to time to take a break to gain strength and admire the beautiful views of the surrounding villages, Mount Ostryi and the highest point of Kosiv – Mount Mykhalkiv.

When you get to the spring itself, you can take a break using the table and benches located nearby.

There is a chapel above the spring itself, which, together with the water, was consecrated in autumn 1996 by the late priest Dmytro Blyzniuk. Thanks to the efforts of the employees of the nearby Karpatski Zori sanatorium, the path to the spring was made easier by throwing a convenient bridge over the steep cliff.

The hydrogen sulphide spring in Kosiv is a natural monument and is under state protection, as the relevant stand informs tourists.

The water from the hydrogen sulphide spring has a characteristic taste of rotten eggs. This water is recommended for the prevention and treatment of stomach diseases or simply to improve appetite. You can use glass, earthenware or plastic containers to store the spring water, but in no case should you use metal containers. Kosiv hydrogen sulphide water can be stored for no more than 20 days. It is recommended to drink this water slowly, in small sips, before and after meals. This water is especially useful for the treatment of hypo- and hyperacid gastritis, colitis, and gastric ulcers.
