Pylypets is located in one of the most charming places Carpathians at an altitude of more than 700 meters above sea level, 19 km from the town Volovets, on the way to Mizhhirya.

The Carpathian resort of Pylypets is an ideal place for both a relaxing and an extreme vacation. In winter, tourists are attracted here by the longest local ski tracks of varying difficulty in Ukraine. Nearby are the magical Shipit waterfall and the breathtaking Borzhava valley.

Therefore, in the summer, Pylypets is a great place to start a walk through the magical Borzhavsky meadows, where you can taste healing blueberries, pick mushrooms, take exciting photo sessions, ride a mountain bike, ride horses or quad bikes, or fly a paraglider. This meadow surpasses even alpine meadows in its beauty.


In addition, Pylypets offers an opportunity to admire the preserved masterpiece of local sacred architecture – the wooden Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which was built in the XVIII century and is located next to the bell tower. In addition, Pylypets has a unique museum of wooden churches. There is an opportunity to take a bath in the vats, visit the Carpathian bath or sauna, and in the nearby village of Kelechyn, taste the healing mineral water enriched with iron.

Despite the high standards of service and the developed infrastructure of the Pylypets resort, the prices for holidays here will surprise you with their moderation.

The combination of all the above factors has made Pylypets one of the most popular resorts in the Carpathians.

The story of Pylypets

The first written mention of Pylypets in historical sources dates back to 1463. Then he was called Verpylypets. In the 15th-18th centuries, the settlement was a hamlet of the village Izky, located further south along the Repynka River. According to documents of the 18th century, this village was called Izky-Pylypets. The territory on which the settlement was located in the 15th century belonged to the feudal lords Urmezey, and since 1467 – to the Dovgays. At the end of the 15th century, the Lipchai magnates became the next owners of Pylypets. After the Austrian crown suppressed the uprising of Kuruts led by Ferencs II Rakocza (1703-1711), Pylypets became the property of the Teleky magnates.

The earliest settlers of Pylypets were refugees from lowland villages who hid in the mountains from the persecution of Hungarian feudal lords. According to legend, the name comes from the founder of Pylypets, the shepherd Pylyp with an accent on the first syllable.

According to another legend, the nearby village Soymy is so called because the first settlers there were the robber brothers of Soymy. One of them had two sons – Ivan and Philip. Both fell in love with Ilyana from Lipcha. The brothers fought over the girl and Philip killed Ivan. After the fratricide, he fled upstream of the Repynka River, where he founded the current village of Pylypets.

Despite a complicated history full of tragedies and disasters, the people of Philippi are an extremely pious people. The first church in the Zakuttia tract was built at the beginning of the 16th century, but unfortunately it burned down and has not survived to this day. At the beginning of the 20th century, a wooden belfry was built on the site of this first church, in which there are three small bells, the largest of which has the inscription “Year of God 1679”. Most likely, it was moved from the Church of the Annunciation of the Lord, which was built in 1671 in the middle of the village on Yurchik hill and burned down in 1758. At the beginning of the 19th century, there were two wooden churches in the village: the main one at the lower end of the village – for 340 believers and the small one at the upper end – for 120 believers. The upper church was already in a bad state, and things from it were moved to the lower church of the Nativity of the Holy Virgin in 1780, which still adorns the village.

Дерев’яна церква Різдва Богородиці

This magnificent Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is located at the entrance to the village. It was built in 1780 and rebuilt in the middle of the 19th century. The temple was renovated in 1941 and 1961. In 1979, the church was covered with a new clapboard. According to legend, in 1939, the Hungarian district administration offered the community to build a brick church in exchange for the wood of the linden, ash and sycamore trees that grew around the church, but the people refused. The temple has strict and monumental forms.

It is decorated with baroque forms of the dome and an exquisite arcade.

It is the exquisite arcade of lower chancels and porches with profiled columns that is a new phenomenon compared to other baroque churches of the neighboring Volovechchyna. The iconostasis of the 18th century has been preserved in the interior of the church. Next to the church is a monumental two-story bell tower, which was built back in 1758. The lower log tier of the belfry is covered with clapboards, and the upper tier is sheathed with boards and finished with an octagonal tent. The old bells were taken away during the First World War, and three new ones were cast in Ferenc Egri’s foundry in 1924.

Музей дерев’яних храмів

In 2007, Yuriy Bedrynets opened the Museum of Wooden Temples in Pylypets. In the hall of the museum there are almost 30 models, which represent examples of sacred architecture of the Transcarpathian and Ivano-Frankivsk regions. Unfortunately, most of the originals of these layouts have ceased to exist. The author of all models of the museum is the famous folk craftsman Andrii Horobets.

The museum is located on the territory of the “Aratta” hotel and restaurant complex at the address of the village Pylypets, 343 (tel. +380314625012, +380675654992, +380663381456).

На фоні водопаду Шипіт

In the middle of the emerald Carpathians, near the village of Pylypets at the foot of the Hymba mountain, there is a magical Shypit waterfall, which is considered one of the seven wonders of Ukrainian nature.

From the depths of the earth on the slope of Mount Velikiy Verkh (altitude 1,598 m), a small stream, Ploshanka, bursts down. Its waters are filled with freshness and coolness. Falling in several unique cascades from a height of fourteen meters, the crystal clear water of this stream breaks on the stones, forming billions of bright drops, which win in the sun with amazing colors in the rays and give rise to the melodious whisper of Shypit waterfall.

Tens of thousands of travelers come to see this natural masterpiece. The waterfall is beautiful at any time of the year. In the summer, during the hottest periods, the waterfall is a small stream that snakes in a cascade over several rocky ledges. In winter, it partially freezes, creating original ice figures. But it attracts tourists the most in spring, when the snow melts, and in autumn, during the period of heavy rains. It is at this time that the majestic giant thunders to all the surroundings, telling an ancient legend about love.

In ancient times, two families lived in the village of Pylypets. A beautiful daughter grew up in a rich family, who was the pride of her wealthy parents. The girl of noble origin and wonderful beauty attracted many gentlemen. But you can’t tell your heart: she fell in love with Ivanka, a young neighbor boy from a poor family. In order for no one to find out about their love, they began to meet secretly near Mount Velikiy Verkh. In a deserted place, only the Carpathians witnessed their meetings.

But everything secret sooner or later becomes obvious. Their love began to be talked about throughout the village, the gossip even reached the girl’s mother. Once, tracking where her daughter goes in the evening, she witnessed their date. With anger in her heart, she began to scold the young couple in every possible way. Suddenly, the sky thundered terribly, thunder rolled, lightning flashed and it started to rain. Rapid, huge streams of water instantly covered Ivanka and Marichka and carried them into the abyss. At first they were holding hands, but suddenly the waterfall forcibly separated them and threw them in opposite directions.

The girl’s mother, who witnessed the terrible tragedy, came to the waterfall every day since then and cried. Until on the night of Ivan Kupala, she heard her daughter’s voice whispering words of love to Ivanka. The stunned mother cried out in despair: “Do you hear people whispering? They are whispering to each other.” Since then, the waterfall has been called “Shypit”.

The waterfall has been popular since 1993. At that time, a festival of youth subcultures began to be held here. Every year in the summer, thousands of representatives of youth informal movements from all over the world come to it.

Entrance to the waterfall is paid: for adults – 15 UAH, for children (up to 16 years) – 10 UAH. The price of parking for cars is UAH 20, and for owners of minibuses – UAH 30. In addition, there are gazebos on the territory, the rental price of which is UAH 50 per hour. Those who want to have a picnic can buy firewood at the price of UAH 30-40 per bundle.

Pylypets as a ski resort

Thanks to its unique climate, Pylypets has become a famous ski resort. The snow cover in Pylypets is ideal for downhill skiing. However, it is very cold here in winter (up to -30 o C). Ski tracks in Pylypets are arranged on the slopes of the Hymba and Ryapushka mountains. There are three large ski lifts in the village: “Zatyshok”, “Borzhavski Poloniny” and “Magura”. The most popular among them is “Borzhavski poloniny” with a length of 1500 meters and a huge height difference – 402 meters.

What else is there to have fun in the village of Pylypets?

From Pylypets, you can go on an exciting hike in the mountains, experience a variety of extreme adventures, or visit the most interesting excursions in Transcarpathia.

Vats, baths, saunas

Water bath procedures for tourists are a real pleasure after a day full of sports activities. Especially popular are Vats. In large containers, sea salt or decoctions of medicinal herbs are added to the water, which contributes to the normalization of heat exchange processes. In winter, it is important to strengthen immunity. And steam hardening in a bath or sauna is a sharp catalyst for metabolism, increasing general tone and strengthening blood circulation.

Hiking tours and hikes in the mountains

Hiking is the most affordable type of active recreation in Transcarpathia. And although hiking tours in the mountains do not require significant expenses, you should still have minimal tourist equipment. But if you are a beginner, you should start with easy routes and simple, inexpensive things in your backpack. Remember that the most important thing is the hike, not the amount of hiking gear that is stored on the shelves. Good physical shape will never hurt you. And when going to the mountains, be sure to prepare your body for stress: go to the gym, go for regular runs, swim, or play football.

From special skills, you will first of all need the ability to use a map and compass, everything else will come with experience. The mountains do not forgive frivolity – you cannot exaggerate your own strength and underestimate the difficulties that may come your way.

The development of tourist infrastructure in Transcarpathia is at an initial stage and is proceeding slowly and spontaneously. There are still very few marked and equipped routes. But the untouched, pristine beauty of the mountains attracts true nature lovers to our region. Untrodden routes and hard-to-reach trails will give you the feeling of a real adventure.

The Ukrainian Carpathians are medium-altitude mountains. Most of the peaks are below 2,000 meters above sea level, and only 6 of them exceed this mark on the Black Mountain Range. Their height does not reach the conventional snow line and, accordingly, they do not have glaciers. Usually hiking in the Carpathians is carried out from the end of April to the middle of October. But you need to remember that in April-May there is still snow on the tops of the ridges, and in October – the frosts are already beginning.

Due to its good geographical location, it is convenient to go hiking from Pylypets to Borzhava valley and its peaks: Velikiy Verkh (1598 meters), Hymbu (1491 meters), Zeleny Gorbok (855 m), Soleshche (1092 m) and the Smerek ridge (1421 m) ). Most of the routes are marked, so it is difficult to get lost while observing all safety measures.

Excursions to interesting locations in Transcarpathia

The vicinity of Pylypets village and the whole Mizhhirya district are extremely rich in mineral waters of carbon dioxide-chlorocalcium type: 53 explored sources. The most famous of them are Soymovske, Vuchkovske, Kolochavske, Verkhnobystrianske, Kelechynske. The water of the latter is used to treat radiation sickness.

Mizhhirshchyn is rich in berries and mushrooms: 120 tons of Carpathian porcini mushrooms and 40 tons of berries are harvested here every year. Mizhhirsky District (since July 2020, the northern part of the consolidated Khust District of Zakarpattia Oblast) is one of the most ecologically clean parts of Ukraine.

Connoisseurs of wild nature and wooden architecture will definitely like this region. Mountains and churches are the main tourist attractions of Mizhhirshchyna. In 34 out of 43 settlements there are wooden temples, both old and recently built. But “young” churches are also of interest, since even in the 20th century, churches were built here according to ancient traditions. There are also 27 wooden bell towers. There are more wooden temples here than in Rakhiv and Tyachiv districts combined. There are many ancient temples in the valley of the Rypynka River, from Podobovets to the Diet.

The village is rightfully considered a rare area of beauty, which Transcarpathia is so rich in. It is not surprising that you can find a huge number of attractions here.

These include:

  • Shypit waterfall;
  • Synevir Pass;
  • Borzhava polonya;
  • Museum of wooden churches;
  • mineral springs;
  • Lake Synevir;
