The most interesting natural formation of the Carpathians arose more than 10,000 years ago due to the fact that, over time, numerous landslides completely covered the river valley. The resulting hollow was gradually filled with liquid from 3 mountain streams over the centuries. Various species of trout live in its purest water.

It is best to view Synevyr in the summer from the top of Mount Ozerna (about 1,500 m). From here, the lake looks like a blue eye.

The natural formation is the most valuable natural gem of the national park and has become one of the hallmarks of the Ukrainian Carpathians. The depth of the bottom in Synevyr reaches 10 m, and in the deepest points it reaches 22 m.

It has been operating since the end of 2011. Currently, 31 animals are housed here. The climate, landscape and nature of the Carpathians contribute to their existence and are perfect for full rehabilitation. Here, wild animals awaken their innate instincts and develop the ability to live in their usual habitat. Reviews of an excursion to the park are always particularly enthusiastic.

The largest of the individuals presented here is the Dury male, whose body weight reaches almost 400 kg. He used to entertain tourists in a tiny house in Rakhiv. The bear was picked up starving and fed only on waste. But now he receives 20 kg of food and 10 liters of clean water every day.

Employees of the center set themselves the goal of returning animals to the wild. Therefore, they constantly develop their skills to actively search for food. For this purpose, they scatter suitable products throughout the territory, having previously securely covered them and forcing them to search for them on their own.

The entire territory of the “Synevyr” nature reserve is reliably protected by a strong iron grid and effective electrical protection. Therefore, tourists at any time of the year can look at the bears without any fear for their safety.
