Boyany is a charming countryside village in the Chernivtsi Oblast province of western Ukraine, known for its gently sloping mountains and winter landscapes. Dating back to the Middle Ages, Boyany today is dotted with antique-style restaurants and unique locally-owned shops.
Sun Valley Ski Resort is located on the outskirts of Boyany and offers year-round outdoor adventure. You can grab a lift pass for an entire day of skiing, snowboarding, snowtubing and iceskating in the winter, while the summer months are popular for mountain biking, horse riding and hiking in the dense pinewood forests.
In the city centre, discover the ancient Ukrainian architecture of Boyany Monastery with its bright-blue and gold detailing. Visit the interior to see the weeping icon of the Virgin Mary. Nearby, admire the sculpture of Ion Neculce, a Moldavian chronicler who inherited Boyany during the 18th century.
Boyany is a scenic 25-minute drive from Chernivtsi International Airport via the H03 or H10. Boyany’s city centre is small enough to explore on foot, while local buses connect to Sun Valley Ski Resort.
