Zakarpattya is mostly mountainous, with small hills covered with forests and alpine meadows. Situated in the magnificent Carpathian Mountains, the oblast is partly covered by primeval beech forests. On the slopes are ski and spa resorts.

The oblast’s other treasure are the Hutzul Alps, Sinevir Lake, and the valley of the Narcissus. There are interesting castles and wooden churches to discover as well. Zakarpattya’s economy is driven by trans-border trade and tourism.
