Beautiful scenary, kind, generous people
So much to experience, so little time
In a nutshell
The home of my ancestors.
If you find yourself in Ivano Frankivsk, do not miss the chance to visit Bunker Bar! This low-key underground bar is styled after a Ukrainian resistance bunker during the Soviet revolution. Trinkets garnish the walls in a respectable, not tacky, way - there is always something interesting to look at hanging on the walls.
The bar carries a wide variety of vodkas (of course!), including a fabulous home-made vodka that the owner gave us! They also serve nice Ukrainian dinner dishes. Service is great and the atmosphere is perfect!
Perhaps the best testament to this bar is the fact that it's always packed with locals, young and old!
Definitely stop by for a visit!

Favorite thing: I spent in this city half a day, waiting for a train back home. We decided to get from railway station to center by foot, and it took quite long walk though. What I got to notice, Ivano-Frankivs'k is very friendly city with same very friendly people. At day time, it was very alive. As its a region center, in city quite well advanced business, lots of shops and services (comparing to most other west ukrainian citys, unfurtunatly, they are far from good).
Though, as for architecture, I expected more from this famous city. Just few beutiful buildings I came across, and most of them, in center.
Well, in spite of everything, Ivano-Frankivs'k is a fine place to make a stop in your further travellings around Carpathian Mts and west of Ukraine.
Fondest memory: As for fondest memory, it was in pizzeria Chelentano, which is close to main square. We were so hungry, so offered pile of food, waiters I guess, for first time saw such hungry tourists, was funny to see their eyes when we asked for more and more :) Btw, very tasty place to have a lunch.
