What to pack
No matter where you travel, your basic packing list shouldn’t change much. You’ll still need the basics. Plan to take a pair of thermal leggings and a long-sleeved thermal top on your winter trip to the Carpathians. Also, a pair of warm and preferably waterproof boots will save your day. You can ask for the reasons why? Here they are:
- Comfortable – you can walk for hours in them
- Travel-friendly – easy to take on and off at the airport
- Warmth – keep your feet warm and dry much better than sneakers
- Stylish – they match virtually everything
Don’t pack too much into your suitcase. Quite often it’s not necessary. When you plan to put five sweaters into your bag, take only two of them. And don’t forget to take something light as well. Because it can be quite warm inside. Regarding ski clothing, of course it’s the best to bring your own. Though there is nothing to worry about if you don’t have it. You always can find the place where you can rent the essentials. And one more friendly tip – it’s better to roll, not fold your winter clothes. It avoids creases and saves space in your suitcase.
The Carpathians are the epicenter of Ukrainian rural folk culture. Adorable alpine villages beckon not only Ukrainians but travellers from all over the world. Let yourself dive into magnificent snowy and frosty days of Bukovel winter trip. You will be surrounded by an amusing atmosphere of winter fairs: traditional beverages, genuine Carpathian cuisine and bakery. Come with an open mind and enjoy the homemade meals of very hospitable local people. What’s more, the skies full of stars, frosty mountain air and snow-covered woods.
