National Nature Park "Gomilshansky forests"

The National Park "Gomilshansky Forests" is one of the most picturesque places of the Left Bank of Ukraine.

"The combination of the unique natural and archaeological sites makes the place to be a must-see for a true traveler.

Soils in the park are considered to be the benchmarks in their characteristics. So it is not surprising that the forests here are up to 150 years old. The pearl of the forest is the oldest oak in Ukraine – its age is approximately 600 years. In total there are about 1000 species of plants, more than a hundred of which are rare. The untouched nature has become home to wild boars, roes, deer, and dozens of species of birds.

The park is rich for natural and archaeological sites, the oldest of which are dated to the Neolithic Age. One of the most interesting objects is the Cossack St. Nicholas Monastery, built in 1648. A separate excursion, called the "Cossack Mountain", is dedicated to the history of the Ukrainian Cossacks.

The infrastructure of the park contributes to a comfortable eco-rest: you can arrange a picnic, set up a tent, rent a gazebo. Whatever you choose, here you will feel harmony with nature.

Gomilshansky forests are within 50 kilometers from Kharkiv, so you can get there by public transportation. In the nearby resort "Koropovi Khutory" you will find a plenty of hostels and other accommodation options."
