Tunnel and Island of Love

The fabulous locations of our country will surprise you with their picturesque nature and rich history. Read on to find out where to feel the wind of the most beautiful feeling in the world.

Tunnel of Love

It is located near the town of Klevan in the Rivne region. It is a 5-kilometer corridor formed by a railroad, trees and bushes. The path is covered with green leaves and branches on all sides. It is in the spring that you can see how nature awakens and becomes a decoration of the man-made arch.

  • History

There are several versions about the origin of the romantic location. Some experts believe that it happened back in 1970 when the military built a railroad for their needs. However, to prevent anyone from finding it, they disguised it with shrubs. Over time, the flora grew and made a kind of passage. Later, a freight train began to run along the track every day, knocking down the branches, creating a perfect shape.

What is more interesting is the legend of a Polish man who worked as an engineer. One day he fell in love with a woman from Klevan and built a railroad to shorten the way to his beloved. Unfortunately, the couple broke up, but their love remained forever.

  • History and legends

The island was artificially created back in 1955, along with the ferry to it. Later, the area was closed, reconstructed, and reopened to the public.

According to a legend, the location was created because of a great love between a Polish lady and a servant boy. Their meetings were kept secret because the girl's father wanted to marry her to a landowner who was better suited to their family's status. That is why the lovers ran away and hid in the swamp. In the morning, the swamp dried up, and there was a small piece of land with willows around which clean, crystal water flowed.

  • Tourist potential

The place will be a great space for your weekend or weekday vacation. In addition to couples, locals often spend their free time here. Most of all, they like to play sports, ride bicycles, scooters, rollerblades, and meet with family and friends.

There are many locations in Ukraine that attract tourists with their beauty. However, if you are planning to go on a trip with your significant other, you should go to Ivano-Frankivsk and Rivne. Here you will be able to plunge into the atmosphere of love and have a good time with your dearest person.
