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.

Such objects of Ukraine as Saint Sophia Cathedral in Kiev, Related Monastic buildings of Kiev Pechersk Lavra and the historical center of Lviv are also on a list of the World Heritage of UNESCO.
