Reserve Zacharovana Dolyna

In the Khust district of Transcarpathian region, on the territory of the Zacharovanyi Krai National Nature Park, there is the Zacharovana Dolyna Nature Reserve, which includes two natural sites of national importance: the Smerekovyi Kamen tract near the village of Ilnytsia on the southern slopes of Buzhera Mountain in the upper reaches of Smerekovyi Stream, and the unique sphagnum bog Black Mud (sphagnum is a bog moss that forms peat). The most original rock massif in Ukraine is called the Enchanted Valley. The outcrops of the bedrock here have created high cliffs in the shape of fantastic creatures. Weathering has polished these figures from light grey calcite. With a little imagination, the stone giants turn into pyramids or people, dragon fangs or castle ruins. The majestic 20-metre-high Spruce Stone is the guardian of this miracle.

Detailed description of the protected area Zacharovana Dolyna

Amazing landscapes, rare and endangered plant species are the main assets of the reserve. Its area is 150 hectares. The name “Zacharovana Dolyna” was suggested in 1930 by the Transcarpathian naturalist Petro Sova.

Not far from the valley and the village of Osiy, in the Kamyanka tract, there is a tourist and recreation camp for 70 people. Holidaymakers can make masks from local clay soaked in mineral water and bathe in a cast-iron boiler filled with the same mineral water.

On the crest of the Velykyi Dil ridge, next to Buzhera Mountain and the Zacharovana Dolyna, at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level, there is the Black Mud sphagnum bog, where rare plants grow (round-leaved sundew, cranberries, broad-leaved fluff, black water lily). The bog is called black because of its high peat content. The bog is of great hydrological importance. It is the source of the Irshavka River. The area of the Black Mud is 15 hectares. Unfortunately, in recent years, the bog has dried up a lot. Near the reservoir, in the vicinity of the village of Chornyi Potik, there is a two-storey recreation centre for 70 people. By the way, there is a legend about the origin of the name of the village Chornyi Potik. Once upon a time, a tall spruce tree was struck by lightning, the tree caught fire, and everything around it burned down. For many years, nothing grew at the site of the fire. Then a stream that ran nearby cried black tears. The tears watered the ground, and it began to come to life, covered with vegetation. Sceptics, however, claim that charcoal used to be burned in this place, which made the water dark.
