Klevan', Ukraine

Tunnel of Love

Beautiful natural tunnel said to grant the wishes of visiting lovebirds. 

Roughly seven kilometers from the city of Klevan, a three-kilometer stretch of private railway has turned the surrounding trees into an enchanting natural tunnel.

A train transporting wood to the nearby fiberboard factory runs three times daily. Otherwise, the railway tracks through the tree tunnel make for a lovely stroll for couples and singles alike. The tunnel is at its lushest during the spring and summer when the trees are at the peak of their leafiness, but the colorful foliage of fall and snow-covered branches of winter make for captivating sights as well.

Local legend has it that couples who visit the tunnel will be granted a wish, provided their intentions are sincere.
