Paradise Trans-Carpathian Resort

Posted on October 20, 2011 by

Google Earth shows a reservoir surrounded by mountains and promises wonderful landscapes....

Across the network:


This is a Tereble-Ritskaya hydropower plant, 27 megawatts. It is located on the Rika River. However, it uses the water from the Tereblya River, which is connected with the plant by means of a 3.7 kilometer-long pipe going through a mountain range.

That is why they built a reservoir on the Tereblya.

    How? why? I don’t understand. This earth is the only home we have got. lets look after it.

  3. banditrider says:

    What a shame that such beautiful places get spoiled by mankind. In fact I should just say man, as there is nothing kind about such behaviour.

  4. CZenda says:

    Where there is no trashbin there is a trash :(

  5. John says:

    This is exactly how Germany looks. No wonder in the Ukraine they want to join the Russian customs union, since Russia is known for its clear clean unpolluted rivers and lakes. If you join the EU, the whole of the Ukraine will look like this, with trash everywhere.

    Once upon a time it was Slavic (6th century), then it was a part of Great Moravia (833-902). Finally in 10th century it became part of Kingdom of Hungary. And you took it by force, so nothing to be proud of…

  7. Ivan says:

    I couldn’t “enjoy myself” in that mess.

    I’d go there with tons of bags and start picking up the garbage.

    I cannot believe it….

    Words can’t describe the tragedy here.

    Sad, just sad. I wouldn’t even touch that water. And Americans wonder what we need the EPA for…Do they take things to far sometimes, maybe, but the alternative is worse still. :(

    • geoff says:

      Hirsh does EPA stand for Environment Protection Authority. Because if it does that would be very good thing

      • Hirsh says:

        Yes, something similar. It’s the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and it’s gotten a bad rap in the U.S., notice i got down ranked for suggesting they do any good? lol :)

    • Hirsh says:

      Typical. Americans who take the cleanliness of their air and water for granted down rank me, not realizing how much dirtier our air and water had gotten before the founding of the EPA. Do i agree with all they do? No. But things will get much worse again by abolishing environmental regulations like so many want to.

  10. Hirsh says:

    I’m going to take a moment to appreciate the fact that my Granddad and Grandmother fled Kyiv and Zhytomyr before the revolution and came to America. Smart move. I’m afraid to learn what happened to the rest of their families that staid behind.

    • Hirsh says:

      Well it’s an uncomfortable truth so i understand the down ranking. But between pogroms, politically motivated famine, and Nazi occupation of Ukraine, Things would have not ended well for them. That’s the hard truth, however unpleasant.

    typisch, typical

  12. Osip says:

    I should like to see more girls and less garbage.

  13. TrulyRestlessSoul says:

    Such a shame.. Clean it up ffs! That place would be beautiful with out the trash

  14. The EPA in America is another one of the worthless ,nuisance,bribe taking agencies there is.The EPA does not make an appearance unless there are cameras and newspapers around or to demonstrate how “indispensable” the agency is.It is a tool of political extortion.Russia isn’t alone with having people litter.They do it in the U.S. too and they always expect some magical entity is going to come along and clean up for them.

    • Hirsh says:

      Tell that to the Americans who used to live on the heavy polluted Cuyahoga River in Northeast Ohio. Between 1869 and 1969 the River CAUGHT FIRE at least 13 times. Stretches of it were completely dead and devoid of life. Visibility was less then half a foot. Oil and chemical slicks floated on it’s surface. That’s what happens when we allow industry to self regulate themselves in America. And it’s why the Clean Water Act was passed and the EPA founded. Like i said do they take things too far sometimes, yes, but those who think we can abolish the EPA and our quality of live will be better are nuts. Funny thing is most people i hear demonizing the EPA are young enough they’ve never lived in an America where the EPA didn’t have their back. They have no idea how bad things had gotten, or why the Clean Water Act and the EPA came about. :)

    That is such a beautiful place! It is horrible that the local people do not care about all the littering and pollution.

    It is very disturbing to see how careless those people are. It will take decades or centuries for all that garbage to disappear. Stupid.
