Amazing Rakhivshina

Ukraine is stunningly beautiful. And this video from Rakhiv region situated in Carpathian mountains in Zakarpattia Oblast (province) in the west of Ukraine is another illustration of the fact.

Rakhiv, or more precisely, the village Dilove located close to it, is one of several European locations vying for the symbolic right to be Geographical center of Europe. The sign in Dilove, the point calculated in 1887 by the Austro-Hungarian geographers, carries a Latin inscription: “Locus Perennis Dilicentissime cum libella librationis quae est in Austria et Hungaria confectacum mensura gradum meridionalium et paralleloumierum Europeum. MD CCC LXXXVII.”

With an elevation of 430 meters above sea level, Rakhiv is Ukraine’s highest city. It is also the home of the the headquarters of Carpathian Biosphere Reserve.
