This incredibly beautiful karst lake has an increased content of glycerin. It means that the lake has a white sandy bottom, soft and healthy water. Bathing the Bile Lake makes a skin soft requiring no additional moistening. In addition, the water heals the problem areas.

Here one will find a spacious beach with sports areas, a moorage with boats and catamarans, a huge area of the adjacent base, the fishing docks etc. The destination is not overcrowded with the tourist and will definitely make your vacation unforgettable.

Ust-Chorna. Zakarpattia Region

The former name of this eco health resort of Ukraine is Koenigsfeld that means “the royal field”. The forest walks through the resort are the hallmark of Ust-Chorna. A path with twenty waterfalls will impress you. Besides, the water is clear and you can drink it directly from the stream. The waterfalls flow one in another forming the small lakes among the stones. Feel free to bathe in them.
