Swamp, the poor and rainbow tourism
Transcarpathians would not be Transcarpathians if they did not try to show with all the fibers of their broad souls that they have – even half a tree, half a plate, half a mountain – but more beautiful, tastier and, of course, more interesting.
Of course, Transcarpathians haven’t fed all the bograchs yet, haven’t been given a drink of wine, haven’t bathed in vats, but they stubbornly think how else to surprise quite picky tourists who want something new. Castles, mineral water, Synevyr, Hoverla, the Valley of daffodils, waterfalls – this is “clogged” in all imaginable and unthinkable tourist guides. Over the past two years, a wine tourist route, military, gastronomic, and a bunch of other delights have been developed and are offered to tourists in the Territory – everything to convince tourists to rest on Silver Land. And this is not enough for Transcarpathians, therefore, local tourism experts do not get tired of “spinning up” new types of tourism in the region, both borrowed and exclusive.
Sweet Route Sweet Transcarpathia is no less tasty than spicy or hoppy Transcarpathia. Guests of the region will be able to taste the sweets of all national minorities of the region, join in their manufacture, and also make sure that sweets can not only spoil the figure, but also positively influence it. Banyki, funky, chivrigi, the famous Dobosh and Prague cakes, German shetemini and Jewish poppy seeds are just a small part of the exotic sweets that are prepared in Transcarpathia. The region has more than a hundred national minorities, and therefore it is represented by almost all the cuisines of the world. Each kitchen has its own nuances, each is famous for its zest.
A new attraction for guests of the region was developed by Transcarpathian scientists and confectioners. They say that the region is so generously represented by this wealth that tourists will not remain unhappy. In addition to baking, sweet drinks and honey, they are offered something else. In order to “finish off” the guests with unusual ones, in addition to sweets, they are offered to taste cheeses. Why cheese? Yes, because in Europe, cheeses are desserts.
Experts say that tourists can choose their own route, depending on preferences and desires. One of the developers of the sweet tourist route, the main tourism expert of Transcarpathia, Fedor Sandor, says that the “Sweet Transcarpathia” has a few more “highlights”: chocolate massage, vanilla bath, chocolate wrap.
Swamp tourism Not in the mountains, as they say, one. Transcarpathians willingly lead tourists and local swamps. Phototourists love visiting lakes that turn into swamps during the flowering of duckweed and irises. Mountain bogs have become a place of pilgrimage for photocrocopter owners, since spectacular swamp landscapes are one of the most popular for shooting.
Black Mochar in the Beregovshchina, Deaf in Mizhhirya, Black Bagno in the Irshavshchyna, Vinkovoye and Lake Sinee in the Mukachevshchina, Lake Nesamovitoye in the Rakhov region — these are the only names! When an experienced guide accompanies the trip with terrible legends, tales, tales, and even “real” stories about the past and present of these places – the tour will really be unforgettable.
Of course, Transcarpathians are still far from the most popular tourist areas of swamp tourism. But you can dream. Maybe for some ten years here, like in Finland, to annually hold the world championship of swamp football. Or, as in the British town of Lanuertid-Wales, – the World Tourism Swamp Diving Championship.
Mushroom tourism Mushroom tourism is a type of tourism aimed at visiting the places where edible mushrooms grow, searching, consuming and buying mushrooms directly in the mushroom region. Mushroom tours in Transcarpathia can be organized, without exaggeration, for a whole year. Mushrooms are found in winter under the snow, and, of course, in late autumn under yellow leaves. There is nothing to say about summer and autumn: porcini mushrooms, brown boletus, chanterelles, boletus, butterflies, “maslag” (smell like yolks of an egg), “deer horns”, royal and “summer” mushrooms …
Mushroom tourism also has its own quest, for example, the search for quality categories of mushrooms, for example, truffles. In Transcarpathia, the largest range of white truffle is Volovetsky, Tyachevsky, Bereznyansky and partially Perechinsky and Mukachevo regions. And you can, along with an experienced guide, find Caesar’s mushroom near Rokosovo, Khust region. The mushroom has an unforgettable aroma, it was served only on the imperial table. It is found in the mountainous regions – from Velikobereznyanshchina to Rakhovshchina – another unique mushroom, “quack”. On Mount Stenka on the outskirts of the village of Sol of the Velikobereznyansky district, if you are lucky, you can meet an unusual type of mushroom – long-legged xylaria. It’s also interesting to go to the forest not with a basket, but behind a whole cart of delicious saffron mushrooms or chanterelles. The most popular in mushroom tourism are porcini mushroom, real chanterelles, boletus, champignon, Caesar’s mushroom, enokitake, strofarius, shiitake.
