Picturesque Golubyne Transcarpathian region is located at a distance of four kilometers north of Svalyava in the valley of the river Pynya. It has been known since 1430. The population of the village is 2781 people.

The name of the village comes from pigeons. There are several legends about this. According to one of them there were a lot of pigeons in the vicinity of the village. The villagers are obliged to hand over the caught pigeons to the lord as a payment. According to another version, in the event of an enemy approaching, from the other side of the Carpathians, a carrier pigeon was released in Golubyne, which reported the danger to the garrison of Mukachevo Castle.


Another legend says that the founder of the village was the son of a priest from Yasinya, whom his father expelled from the house for disobedience. He gave the name to the village because it grew solid thickets in which pigeons nested. It is thanks to this founder that a significant part of the indigenous people in the village have the surname Popovych.

Rest in Golubyne Transcarpathia

Golubyne attracts tourists mineral springs, souvenir products and picturesque nature. In the village, you can buy wonderful baskets woven by folk craftsmen. Between the villages of Golubine and Solochyn since 1965, a sanatorium has been operating on the basis of “Luzhanska” mineral water «Kvitka Polonyny». Diseases of the stomach, biliary tract and liver, hepatitis, diabetes are treated here, and radionuclides are removed. The borehole is located directly on the territory of the health resort. At a distance of six kilometers from the sanatorium, there is a ski base with a lift. The main object of photography in the sanatorium is a huge dinosaur sculpture.

The advantage of the resort is the presence of several indoor pools, the surrounding area is ennobled. Not far from the sanatorium flows a river. This sanatorium is characterized by treatment with low-mineralization water, which for some patients is much more useful than high-concentration water. It is proved that this water has a high ionic strength.

It was near Golubyne in 1878 that the Counts of Schenborn began to extract water from the springs “Margit”, “Luga-Erzhebet” and “Pannonia-Jofia”. In those days, this water was used to treat diseases of the upper respiratory tract, intestines, kidneys and gallbladder, as well as diabetes.

Golubyne is also known for the birth of Hryhoriy Zhatkovych, the first governor of Subcarpathian Russia in the Czechoslovak Republic.
