Western Ukraine

The southwest region of Ukraine’s Carpathian Mountains is the home of the Hutsul people, high mountain pastoralists whose woodcarving, embroidery, weaving and leatherwork is highly prized. Hike on the mountain trails of Carpathian National Park, visit the egg-shaped Pysanka Museum, dedicated to the painted eggs that have been a fixture of Ukrainian handicrafts for hundreds of years, and pay a private visit to traditional craftspeople and artisans.
