Shopping in The Carpathians

  • Shopping in Kosiv

    Craft Market

    Kosiv's high-quality Hutsul crafts are sold at its well-known weekly craft market. It attracts sellers from across western Ukraine and from as far away as Moldova. Anything you buy here is guaranteed to be the real, homemade deal. It takes place on Saturday mornings, 2km southeast of the centre, across the river and just off the main P24 highway through town.

  • Shopping in Yaremche

    Souvenir Market

    You haven't seen a Ukrainian souvenir market until you've visited Yaremche's, surely western Ukraine's largest. Now reaching absurd dimensions, it's centred around a beauty spot where a footbridge crosses the tumbling River Prut. The rocks below the bridge are still a pretty place to picnic, mainly as from there you can't see the market.

  • Shopping in Kolomyya

    Skrynya

    If a tour of the Museum of Hutsul Folk Art has got you craving for something local to take home, this great little junk-antique-souvenir shop, hung with all kinds of ceramics, art, leather, blankets and assorted bric-a-brac (new, Soviet and prewar), is the place to head. Also stocks Kolomyya maps.
