Sokolovi Skeli Ornithological Reserve

Nature around the village of Turya Polyana has always amazed people with its beauty. The idea of preserving these unique forests with their flora and fauna arose in the 1920s and 1930s during the Transcarpathia as part of Czechoslovakia. As a result, the Shypot Forest Reserve was established in 1936. However, after the arrival of Soviet rule, nature protection was no longer considered a priority. As a result of this policy, in the 1950s, the forests around the village of Turya Polyana suffered from massive deforestation. The issue of nature protection was only revisited in the 1970s and 1980s. At that time, the Sokolovi Skeli bird sanctuary and the Turya Polyana nature reserve were established near the village on the territory of the former Czech forest reserve Shypot.

Among the cosy 200-year-old coniferous and beech forests in the north-eastern part of the reserve, there are mighty vertical cliffs where many rare Red Book birds of prey nest. Here, on the rocks, you can see white-tailed eagles, golden eagles, pygmy eagles, vultures, snake-eaters, peregrine falcons, owls, sparrow owls, etc. If you’re lucky, you can even capture these proud birds on your camera lens.
