Narcissus valley - famous natural sightseeing in Ukraine.

Synevyr lake - another natural sightseeing of Transcarpathian region.

This lake is like a love symbol in Transcarpathia. According to the legend, many years ago one count's daugther Syn and one shepherd Vyr loved each other and wanted to marry. But Syn's father, a rich count, didn't want to have a poor son-in-law, so he ordered to kill a shepherd. And when Vyr had been killed, Syn cried very much and all her tears created such beautiful lake. Then people decided to denominate this lake Synevyr - as a connection of the names Syn and Vyr.
