The history of the mountain
Karachun mountain has many legends, and the legend of Slov'yansʹk city originates from this mountain. The name "Karachun" - still nobody knows where it came from, but translated from the Turkic language group - it means "Black soul". As it is the highest point of the city, a television and radio center with a 222-meter tower were built here in the seventies.

A new story
Unfortunately, this mountain has not only good memories. In the summer of 2014, it became the center of hostilities. Many Ukrainian military died there because of the altitude maintenance. On the first of July, during heavy fighting, between the Ukrainian military and the separatists, the bottoms of the tower were damaged and it fell. Two years later, at the same place,a new television tower was launched, which became a symbol of Ukrainian broadcasting in Donetsk region. Karachun Mountain has become a part of new history.

How to get there?
The best way to get there is from Kramatorsk city, then from the bus stop «Ostrovsky St.» bus №4 on which you have to ride 15 stops, to the village Yasnogorka (about 33 min). Next, go from the stop in the direction of the bus 300 meters and turn left and walk straight for about 11 minutes until you find yourself on an asphalt road that will be perpendicular to this one, then turn left again and walk for 11 minutes. Upon arrival, you will see a TV tower, which stands on top of Karachun Mountain in Slavyansk.

Caution! Part of Donbass is occupied during the military aggression of russian federation against Ukraine!

The armed aggression of russia against Ukraine since 2014 has led to the loss of homes and lives not only of many Ukrainians, but also citizens of other countries and nationalities.

We consider unacceptable and senseless any military actions against any country in the 21st century, but unfortunately the leadership of the russian federation does not think so, and therefore many independent countries, including Moldova, Georgia and our homeland Ukraine, suffer from senseless aggression.

Therefore, until the occupied parts of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions will be demilitarized and returned to Ukraine, including other territories of independent countries, we STRONGLY RECOMMEND for users of our site do not visit the territories occupied by russia, including the Crimea, this can be dangerous for your life.

For now, our website contains only tourist attractions that are in territories controlled by Ukraine and located far away from the combat zone, therefore, thanks to the Ukrainian Army, the visiting of these place a 100% safe.
