Mineral spring in Vuchkove - vacation with health benefits!
In Transcarpathian region, Verkhovyna, there is a wonderful resort village called Vuchkove. The hot spring is a wonderful natural attraction that helps tourists to recover, get rid of numerous ailments.
Carpathian volcanoes ceased to erupt several million years ago and have become mountain ridges and separate mountains. But even now, some manifestations of the late stage of volcanism can still be observed: mud volcanoes and water geysers. A geyser is a spring that periodically discharges jets of water and steam high into the air. The most famous geysers are in Iceland, in the Kamchatka, in the Yellowstone Park. There is also a geyser in Ukraine, deep in the Transcarpathian forests.
Features of the resort
The geyser is located in the tract "Petrovets" on the bank of the mountain stream. The water in it is salty and contains iron. The geyser water has a therapeutic effect for various diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. There is a similar cold mineral geyser in Slovak Herlany, in 2002 it was listed as a World Heritage site and natural attraction of Slovakia.
Foresters took care of the vacationers
"Hundreds of thousands of tourists come to see the geyser every year: Vuchkovo geyser and Mizhhirya district in general are popular destinations for lovers of interesting natural phenomena and scenic landscapes. In order to preserve the unique natural mineral spring, foresters of the Verkhnya Hora forestry have set up a recreational zone near the geyser. Tourists can take a rest and wait for the unique natural phenomenon, when the water of the geyser is discharged right from below the earth crust. And this phenomenon occurs almost every 2 hours (depending on various circumstances and season), discharges water 4-6 meters high for about 10 minutes," - the director of the Verkhnya Hora State Forestry Maria Plyska-Halatyba said.
