Winter Holidays in the West of Ukraine: 7 Magical Places

New Year is a very special and magical holiday. For some, it is an opportunity to have a mini trip and go to the most beautiful markets in the world, while for others, it is a possibility to take a break & recharge and spend time with family at home or discover uncharted corners of the country.

We decided to help you in choosing a place for New Year celebration, and collected the most interesting ideas of places to go for the winter holidays in Ukraine.



A celebration of New Year and Christmas in Lviv has become a sort of tradition.

In December, the main tree of the city lights up, and from that moment the magical atmosphere begins to reign in the city. At this time, Christmas markets with Carpathian souvenirs, national clothes and regional food are also opening here.

To feel the atmosphere of the city, we advise you to climb the High Castle Mountain, enjoy the panorama of Lviv and drink a glass of champagne with bells on.



Who said that it’s impossible to celebrate New Year in Ukraine in warmth? Kosyno resort is a great place to take a bracing dip into warm thermal waters and even get healthier. There are 7 original saunas here: from salt to eucalyptus, and the temperature in a warm jacuzzi is +41 … 42 ° С.

An ideal place for those who love warmth and comfort!



Vorokhta is a high-mountain resort village hid among untouched forests that are surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains.

Here you can unhurriedly ride a horse in harness or, on the contrary, get a dose of adrenaline and conquer the rugged terrain on a quad bike.



In winter, in Transcarpathia, you can not only go skiing and sledding, but also take part in folk rituals during the holidays of St. Basil, Baptism, and, of course, Christmas.

But if you want to escape for a while from bustle and hustle, go to Izky, a village where everyone can enjoy real Carpathian eco-holidays and feel the spirit of the mountains. Wooden houses in Izky will lift your spirit and create a truly fabulous atmosphere!



Bukovel is a great place for the winter weekend if you love ski vacation. Dreaming about mulled wine in the mountains, snowboarding, sleds and pain in the muscles? Then we recommend you to spend it on Dragobrat :)

It is not so easy to get here, but this place is worth the effort: mountains here are covered with snow for the longest period, you can live on the territory of the resort itself, and prices are loyal.

Nyzhnye Selyshche

Want to surprise yourself and your loved ones? Then go to Nyzhnye Selyshche – there you can find a famous Seliska cheese factory, which produces three varieties of cheese using Swiss technology. Do not miss the opportunity to see the process of making cheese, taste, buy products and even communicate with the owner.

Then visit the first snail farm in Ukraine. At the moment, you can try 3 types of snails: in Transcarpathian style (with cheese), Saffron snails (with saffron and other herbs), Burgundy snails (with the addition of tomatoes and garlic). We think that you will get a lot of impressions from such a gastronomic journey!


ChernivtsiСтепан Карачко

We would like to complete our list with “little Paris” situated in the Carpathian region.

It’s not always necessary to go abroad to enjoy the unique architecture and feel the festive atmosphere. Old buildings of the city with “Austrian flavor” will bring you up only positive emotions from the celebration of New Year 2019 in Chernivtsi!
