History of the Dragobrat resort

Dragobrat began its history as a resort and tourist center at the dawn of the 20th century. In those distant times, a whole network of tourist shelters was created in the Dragobrat tract, located on hiking routes.

In Soviet times, the development of Dragobrat’s recreational potential continued. In 1956, the “Dragobrat” shelter was built, which belonged to the “Edelweiss” camp (Yasinya village). This building has been preserved to this day. In Soviet times, tourists who hiked from the Chornogirsky Range to the Synevir lakes. However, until the 1980s, this place attracted only small groups of tourists, who were mostly fans of mountain skiing, as well as members of sports clubs from Lviv and Kyiv. They mastered the almost pristine slopes, taking with them their own self-made portable lifts.

Over time, Dragobrat became more and more popular. So, already at the end of the 1980s, in June-July, the territory between Mala and Velika Blyznytsia became the venue for sports meetings of slalomists-collectors of Ukraine. Portable equipment and part of the equipment were delivered to these places by helicopter.

In 1980, an avalanche laboratory was built at the foot of Mount Stig. Along with it, the VL-1000 rope hoist (1000 m long, powered by a diesel generator) was installed there. The two-story building of the laboratory itself was equipped with everything necessary for the overnight stay of a small group of people. Since then, these places have been chosen for skiing by scientists and officials of the All-Union level. Later, the first exit in Dragobrat was moved a little to the left, where it still works.

Unfortunately, in 1991, the avalanche laboratory was destroyed by fire. After the collapse of the USSR in 1993, the remnants of the aforementioned avalanche laboratory farm were purchased by former skiers and entrepreneurs from Poltava, who turned Dragobrat into a famous ski resort.

The legend of Dragobrat

According to most researchers, the name of the mountain and tract of Dragobrat is translated as “clearing”, that is, a section of cut down forest. However, the legendary version of this name is more interesting. According to her, in the distant past, a friendly family lived near Mount Petros. Two twin brothers grew up in it – handsome, brave and kind. It so happened that both brothers fell in love with a pretty neighbor girl. The girl liked both brothers equally. And, in order not to offend any of them, she decided to leave the choice of her lover in the hands of fate. She came up with an extremely difficult task for the brothers – to bring her edelweiss from the high mountains. The first one to bring her a magical edelweiss flower will become her husband. The brothers went on a dangerous journey and did not return for a very long time. The girl became very worried about them and decided to go in search of them. Eventually, she found them. Both brothers died, falling into the abyss trying to save each other. She cried for a long time, and from grief rushed after them into a mountain gorge.

The tract and the mountain have been called Dragobrat since then, because the word “drago” means “dear” in honor of the brother who tried to save his twin brother from death. Nearby is also Lake Ivor, which was formed from the bitter tears of a young girl who longed for her brothers.
