The village of Lazeshchyna in the Rakhiv district of the Transcarpathian region is a true beauty of the Hutsul region. According to legends, it got this name because it was a kind of “crossing” between Galicia and Transcarpathia. Today it is a popular tourist center. In 2016, it even took second place in the “Incredible Villages of Ukraine” contest based on online voting.
In winter, the village attracts lovers of skiing. In the summer, many tourists go from here on various hiking routes to the mountains. Especially popular are trips to Hoverlu and Petros mountains, which are very close to Lazeshchyna. The forests near Lazeshchyna are rich in mushrooms and berries (japanese, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry).
