Ukraine: Vorokhta – Stone Aqueducts

Even deeper into the Carpathian Mountains along the switchback mountain roads comes the village of Vorokhta that is famous for two stone aqueducts built at the end of the 19th century when railroad was brought here. Vorokhta was originally at the edge of Poland and its proximity to the highest Carpathian Mountains made it a tourist destination. During the Soviet times, several ski resorts were developed here. Ukraine’s highest mountain – Hoverla – is within a day’s hike from here. The stone aqueducts are no longer I. Use as a more modern bridge carries the railroad, but you can walk in and around them. The smaller one is decorated with Gutsul-themed graffiti that is totally awesome!
