Yaremche is a city in Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast of west Ukraine. Kick off your visit on the 23rd (Mon): take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Makovytsia Mountain, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Nativity of St. John the Baptist, then indulge your thirst for a good beer at Girske Mini-Brewery, then indulge your thirst for a good beer at Brewery Mikulichin, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at St Elias Wooden Church. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the dramatic natural features at Yablonitskiy Pass, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Nativity of Most Holy Mother of God, and then explore the striking landscape of Carpathian National Nature Park.
