It is worth noting that many budget tourists make a hybrid choice: they prefer to have fun in Bukovel, and live in the village of Yablunytsya, which is located almost next to the famous resort, while accommodation (and food) here is much cheaper. And even the cost of transfer (and from Yablunytsia to Bukovel is only a little more than ten kilometers) makes renting rooms in our guest house “Chillax” a much less expensive option than staying in a hotel of the same level of comfort, located in the legendary resort 😀
In addition, Yablunytsia is located in close proximity to two major ski resorts. There are 9 ski slopes (6 red and 3 blue) for intermediate athletes, beginners and children. If you’re worried about queues and congestion on the slopes in neighboring Bukovel, then Yablunytsya is a great place to learn to ski.
