You can feel the power of nature in the ancient forests of Yavoriv Park. These are areas of forests that have been developing for a long time without any human intervention. It is known that in places like this, the oldest trees on the planet grow. The virgin forests are a great place for many rare species of animals, fungi, and plants.

The ancient beech forests of Roztochia with an area of 384.81 hectares are included in the UNESCO World Natural Heritage.

If you do not interfere in beech forests - in 50-100 years they will turn into virgin forests

White Rock tract

Nov 25 2021 Published by under

Just in the middle of the forest, we meet a sand quarry - a rock that rises between the trees.

It is composed of calcareous sandstones containing fossilized tubers of lithothamnion algae and ervil shells (ervil - mollusks that lived in the warm Tortonian and Sarmatian seas millions of years ago).

White Rock is a unique scientific object in the middle of the forest. On the slopes of the hill, you can often find snakes and agile lizards. Among the interesting representatives of the flora, you can see mountain onion, forest anemone, sagebrush (regionally rare species), sunrose, and in wetlands at the mountain foot - marsh hornbeam and May orchid (an orchid, listed in the Red Book of Ukraine).

The green-purple carpet is spread in the forests of the village Vereshchytsia in mid-April. At that time of the year, one can observe the incredible beauty of the Periwinkle beech forest flowering. By the way, few people know that periwinkle is a poisonous plant used in pharmacology, and animals do not eat it. It is an evergreen shrub that often forms continuous thickets on dozens of hectares.
