The state historical and cultural reserve "Tustan" is one of the most beautiful and striking places in Ukraine. This ridge of sandstone rocks in the middle of the Carpathians formed 25 million years ago and created a picturesque and exotic complex.
Tustan used to be an important strategic point and part of the unified system of the Carpathian line of defence of the south-western borders of Kyivan Rus, and later the Kingdom of Rus. In the IX-XIII centuries on the rocks there was a defensive complex, customs and fortress city; the central part of the fortification occupied 3 hectares.
Tustan is the only preserved wooden fortress of X-XIII centuries which makes it a unique monument of ancient architecture of the pre-Mongolian period both in Ukraine and Europe.
The complex “Zakhar Berkut”. To climb close to the clouds and see the real beauty of the Carpathian Mountains, we invite you to go on the cable car-chair lift to the top of Mount Vysokyi Verkh (1243m). The observation deck offers a magnificent view of Skole Beskydy, Gorgany and the Carpathians of Polonyna.
