Other people (like me) visit the Carpathians in summer. That is what Cody and I did last weekend; we found an amazing Adrenaline Tour In The Carpathians from Lviv (where we live). Our trip to the Carpathians actually happened due to the bad news I received on…

Rafting In The Carpathians

In the West of Ukraine lays part of the Carpathian Mountains. This is a beautiful area covered in thick forests with many flower fields and fast mountain rivers that run through all the Carpathians.
