An alley in Berehomet Arboretum
Address: Centralna St 12, 59233 Berehomet, Vyzhnytsia District, Chernivtsi Oblast, Ukraine
Today's part of the village hospital, Berehomet Arboretum was founded by Mykola Vasylko (a deputy of the Austrian Parliament in Vienna from Bukovyna) in 1890. Although today this monument of topiary art looks unkept, it’s still unique. The Park's territory is made of one hectare and includes 54 tree and bush species. Its pearl are two trees of golden pseudomodrinia naturally growing only in the delta of the Chang Jiang river in China. This is the only place in Ukraine where these rare exotic plants grow. Another unique natural artefact is the Japanese Ginkgo biloba tree. This is an ancient tree species remembering the dinosaur era. Now the park has three Ginkgo trees. Fans of green nature will also notice the relict European yew (Taxus baccata), camphor baccata and common hemlock (Tsuga canadensis). But the Park's most notable decoration is the tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera).
The arboretum is located about 60 km from Chernivtsi, so traveling here by car is a conventional way of visiting it.
