Arpad Line (bunker tour)

The Arpad Line is a powerful fortification line of World War II. Hungarian forces built by to protect Carpathians from the Red Army’s attack. It is 700+ kilometers long and passes boarders of modern Slovakia, Ukraine, and Romania. It was called so in the name of ancient Hungarian leader Arpad, who conquered Pannonia (the modern Hungary) in the late 9th century.

Stuzhica

Some of the oldest trees of Ukraine grow in this village. Have you ever tried to hug a tree that is 9 meters in girth? You will have this opportunity! This tree is 30 meters high and over 1,000 years old. Experts say that local oaks are circa 1,200 – 1,300 years old. Every 100 years oaks gain 1 meter in girth, but then they grow more slowly after 500 years. Thus, only olive (over 2,000 years) and pistachio (1,700) trees are older in Ukraine.

The original icons and books of 17th and 18th centuries are preserved until now there. The bell that is hundred years older than the church is still functioning. Many painters come here to draw the church. Furthermore, it is also a part of UNESCO world heritage since 2013.
