Carpathian National Natural Park

At 503 sq km (5414 sq ft), this is Ukraine’s largest national park. Despite its status, industrial logging still takes place, and only about 25% of the park area is protected. Founded in 1980, the CNNP shelters wolves, brown bears, lynx, bison and deer. Hutsuls still live in the park, and the country’s highest peak, Mt Hoverla (2061m/6761ft), is here as well. You can taxi from Ivano-Frankivsk to getting there.
