Ancient forests of Ukraine in the register of UNESCO
UNESCO has added the Carpathian beech forests of Ukraine and Slovakia to the list of the World Heritage.
The named forests consist of ten nature reserves which are spread over 185 km from Mountains near Rakhiv and Chornogirsky massif, along the Polonynsky mountain range to the Slovak mountains – the Bukovske Vrchy and Vihorlat.
UNESCO says that the territory is an outstanding example of wild beech forests in the European ecosystems. In the scientists’ opinion, this is an invaluable genetic reservoir of beech and other species of these trees.
The Carpathian beech forests are the first natural object of Ukraine that was inscribed to the World Heritage of UNESCO.
