No doubt, the tunnel of love is so beautiful with several aspects. Tunnel of Love Ukraine is the name given by local people to this fairytale track. The lush green tunnel seems out of natural world, captured much attention, being a perfect photography spot.
The Tunnel of Love Ukraine runs a 3 to 5 km section of industrial railway located near Klevan, which is linking it with village Orzhiv. However, on the Kovel-Rivne line, the total length is seven kilometers. The majestic railway track is surrounded by green arches, which is famous for being a beloved place for couples to stroll in the middle of path. Trees with overhanging branches were left to grow freely around the line, thus, the passing train is the only thing, which is shaping its way through.
The green corridor is an industrial track for wooden work, fiberboard factory employed three times a day, but depending on how much plywood is to transport. The line is being at Klevan station and reaches the northern area of Orzhiv. The 4.9 km line is fully covered with dense forest out of whole line of 6.4km. However, tunnel of love stretches anywhere from 3 to 4.9 km, depending on how individuals count it. The gloomy atmosphere offers a degree of privacy and scariness. It is an ideal spot for selfies, wedding photos, for FB and Instagram depends on your perspective.
The local people were quite mystified when tourists abruptly started appearing in their one-street town and tramping along the railway line. The darkness provided a degree of privacy and the terrifying scenes offered a socially acceptable excuse for the physical contact at a time when public affection or even holding hands was considered inappropriate. In the earliest personifications, riders were taken by two-passenger boats via dark passages.
There were two major themes, a relaxing romantic ride motivating the couple to hold, or a spooky horror ride inspiring the couple to cling to one another and make a wish will get what they want. Before to go there, keep in mind, the tunnel has official protection or guardian. A nearby factory cut down many trees to widen the train passage which in result of huge outcry.
From all part of Ukraine, the birch trees are trucked into the Odak factory. Then they are turned into finished plywood panels. After that they are loaded onto large containers and hauled by trains to the Klevan railway junction.  Hence, at Klevan the goods are taken along the main trunk line to markets across West Europe.
The tunnel ever growing popularity, new wedding couples prefer to make a photoshoot there. Thus, visitors are creating more problems for train operators in managing the speed and control. Although, there is no major incident took place here, but a 38-year-old lady was struck by train, fracturing her hip.

Ai-Petri Ukarine

Ai-Petri is a famous peak in the Crimean Mountains. For administrative purposes it is in the Yalta municipality of Crimea. The peak is located above the city of Alupka and the town of Koreiz. The name has Greek origin, and is translated as St. Peter. Ai-Petri is one of the windiest places in Ukraine and it is blowing for 125 days a year, reaching a speed of 110 mph. There is a Cable Car installed there which takes passengers from a station near Alupka to the main area in Ai-Petri. The mountain is 1200 meter (3937 feet) high. 

Ai-Petri is picturesque peaks, which have become the symbol not just of the southern coast, but also of the entire Crimean peninsula.  This legendary mountain is great attraction for tourist, where you can get an incredible view over the entire southeastern coast of Crimea.  A huge number of travelers climb the Ai-Petri all year round just to see fantastic panoramic view from the top of peak. The best way to get to peaks is to use the cableway ‘Miskhor – Ai-Petri,’ which is an attraction itself. It consists of two parts, one of which is “unsupported” and not like anything else in Europe.

At the top of Ai-Pertri you can see bare stone plateau. Moreover there’re number of cafes and places to get the taste of Tatar cuisine, eastern sweets and delicious Crimean foods. When on Ai-Petri, most tourists rush to Cliff Shishko, the observation point, from which one can get awesome views of the Black Sea coast. There’s one more famous place on the top of Ai-Petri which is cave “Trehglazka”. This is very exculisve place due to its temperature which hovers around zero degree all round year, and cave is cover with several meters of ice. Ai-Petri also keeps an unusual marker, a metallic globe on a granite base with its exact geo-location; all plateau visitors strive to touch it.

Well, if you like driving then you can get to the top of Ai-Petri by car, following the highway Yalta  Bakhchysarai. The road passes by the highest waterfall in Ukraine, Uchan-Su (“Flying Water”). It is 100 meters high, which is twice as high as Niagara Falls. The waterfall is most remarkable during a storm or when the snow is melting. The lovely Ai-Petri has everything for an adventurous gateway. In the summer season you can even ride horses, mountain bicycle, and jeeps or paraglide here. However in winter snowy slopes attract ski lovrs and snowmobile racers.

Sivash Salt Lagoons in the Crimean Peninsula

There’s a place lies in between Black sea and Sea of Azov is called “Crimean Peninsula” actually located just south of the Ukrainian mainland, and is almost entirely surrounded by water. It is linked with the Ukrainian mainland by the Isthmus of Perekop a strip of land about five to seven kilometers wide, and is separated from the Russian region of Kuban on the east by the Strait of Kerch. On the other side of northeast is located the Arabat Spit, a thin strip of land that splits a system of shallow salt-water lagoons named Sivash, from the Sea of Azov.

These lagoons almost cut the Crimean Peninsula off from the mainland, and works as a natural border between the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the Kherson Oblast that passes through Sivash. To the north side, the Isthmus of Perekop splits Sivash from the Black Sea and at the same time, links the Crimean Peninsula to the mainland. The Sivash lagoons are very shallow with a mean depth of about 50 cm to 1 meter, while the deepest place is mere about 3 meters. Although bottom is covered with silt about to 5 meters thick. However; the lagoons are so shallow, so water entering Sivash from the algae-ridden Sea of Azov and evaporates rapidly in summer, therefore; producing a terrible stench which has received the lagoon name is "Rotten Sea".

It is estimated that more than 200 million tonnes of salt is exist in Sivash. In consequence the salt harvesting has converted into a big business in Crimea. In summer when water levels recede, plentiful pinkish-white salt pans are uncovered and covering dozens of square kilometers in the region. The eye-catching pink color is the result of microalgae that flourish in salty conditions and yield high levels of beta-carotene, a reddish pigment that protects it from the region's penetrating sunlight. The salt is gathered by traders and exported to European Union countries, Russia, and to Japan, where it is prized for its purported value in fighting the effects of radiation. This below picture shows the diversity of colors the lagoons yield owing to its varied chemical composition. Hence you can view different colors, such as peach, mustard, and lime green, blue, blue-green, beige, and brown. Moreover; thick layers of silt coat the bottoms of the shallow marshes, which are abundant in mineral salts to supply a local chemical plant.
