Kurortny Park

Reviewed By DeliaDK - Lake Villa, Illinois

We were here around the holidays in December and it was beautiful! It just snowed and it looked like a winter wonderland! The best part was the you could actually feed birds and they came and go food from your hand. My kids will remember that for the rest of their lives. If you go there definitely get bread or cookies with you. You'll have an amazing experience! I can't imagine how beautiful is in the spring when everything comes to life!

The Spring №1

Reviewed By Kostyantyn_V

This place offers various experience to its visitors. Those who visit it regularly (at least 3 times a day) for curative purposes are accustomed to both its interior and the water. Those who drop by just to get an impression will not be disappointed either.
There are three excellent bas-reliefs there. Of course, you should taste water (a few small sips from several wells) - you may want to read some scentific description of its chemical composition on the walls in several languages.
Do not expect a pleasant taste and/or smell of the water - its world-famous curative features come from oil-based ingredients. We were told that 40 years ago the smell had been almost unbearable until special odour filters were installed :) However, people get accustomed to the water quickly and drink it easily.
Keep in mind there are breaks during the day.

If you spend more than a day in Truskavets - do visit it. The museum is situated in the very center of the town so it can't be missed. Rich history of the region is represented in numerous exhibits. Very informative.

Central Square

Reviewed By Kostyantyn_V

Truskavets is such a small town that it can be easily strolled across during a day. It's generally quiet and calm with one exception - the Central Square. It's always full of people and full of life. One can do almost everything there - from eating to drinking water to buying pictures to buying tickets to events, etc. Find your own activity and enjoy!

Art Museum Mikhail Bilas

Reviewed By devonandriy - Paignton, United Kingdom

Firstly, the 19th century villa called “Hoplyana” in which the museum is situated is worth the visit! The stained glass window that presents itself as you ascend the beautifully carved staircase is lovely.
Although I had never heard of Mykhailo Bilas before, I really enjoyed seeing the beautifully crafted tapestries of his that hang on the walls of this museum. They are all colourful, well thought-out folk type works, with well annotated details beside each exhibit.

Проходя мимо этого костела, нам непременно захотелось зайти на его замечательную территорию, чтобы посмотреть поближе удивительные цветы, посаженные там. Во дворе этого костела чувствуется благодать и очень приятная энергетика, находиться здесь невероятно комфортно и здорово.

Landscape Park Podgorye

Reviewed By Сергей A - Kharkiv, Ukraine

На сегодняшний день, пожалуй, это самое позитивно настраивающее место Трускавца. В отличие от основного Курортного парка, этот пусть и небольшой парк всегда ухожен и из года в год развивается. Особенно рекомендую к посещению семьям с детьми. Наверняка им понравятся и игровая площадка и небольшой зоопарк.

The Spring №3 Bronislava

Reviewed By Валерий З

Источник №3 "Бронислава" находится на дне Курортной балки, в 150 м южнее источника №6 "Эдвард" в Курортном парке, и представляет собой Деревянный теремок который закрывает деревянный колодец глубиной 8,25 м. Эксплуатировался в период с 1902 по 1968 г. На сегодняшний день Памятник архитектуры, охраняется государством. Рядом пробурили скважину для получения воды в оздоровительных целях.
Из всех трускавецких вод Бронислава самая соленая. Ею лучше всего полоскать горло, нос, ее употребляют для компрессов. "Бронислава" на вид чистая, без запаха, с солено-горьковатым вкусом.
Фото добавлю после публикации отзыва.

The Spring №6 - Edvard

Reviewed By leonpak - Minsk, Belarus

Этот памятник архитектуры, как его «соратники» "Фердинанд", "Мария" и далее по списку производят удручающее впечатление. На них висят таблички, что это «памятник архитектуры XIX-XX веков» и они «охраняются государством» и «порча карается законом». Но государство, которое должно заботиться о них, ничего не делая, само наносит вред этим памятникам архитекруры. Еще несколько лет и охранять будет нечего.
Кстати, фото «Эдварда» размещено на туристической карте Трускавца, которую дают бесплатно в инфоцентре напротив городского совета рядом с музеем Биласа.
