Tunnel of Love

Nature knows how to surprise with its beauty, even interacting with a person. Adorable illustration of this statement is the Tunnel of Love. So called natural monument, which is a forest tunnel stretching for about four kilometers. It is located near the village of Klevan, which is in the Rivne region of Ukraine. This amazing place was formed around the railway that connects the villages Klevan and Orzhev. Tunnel of Love is a place of pilgrimage for lovers of pairs, and, of course, tourists. This is truly a magical place here attracts not only ordinary travelers, but also directors. So, on the account at the Tunnel of Love already have two jobs — a short film “Mina” and the romantic drama “Klevan: Tunnel of Love.” What is striking is the fact that the latter was filmed by the Japanese. Therefore, we can confidently talk about the fact that this natural monument is known far beyond the borders of Ukraine.

How formed this amazing place? The rational explanation is that there is not pruned trees, which continues to grow and at the same time three times a day goes industrial train that transports the necessary materials located near the plant. When he runs, it breaks all the shoots of plants that reach for the rail. Thanks to this “connivance” and intervention techniques, and there was a delightful place that resembles the arch. Although the local residents can hear a beautiful legend about this place. For example, it states that a couple in love was lost among the trees. Due to the inability to form a family (opposition from parents), she threw herself into a swamp, which was rich in this area, and drowned, and the guy went to look for her and disappeared. Now there are rumors that are periodically at night you can see the flame of the kid who is looking for his beloved. Silent witnesses of those events in their memory and formed the crown of his beautiful tunnel by which it was decided to build a road for trains that are now supplying wood to Orzhevsk woodworking plant. He still acts, and the train, walked three times a day, it serves him. Therefore, when the walk to this place you need to keep care and be careful.

The cause of the Tunnel of Love is also called the fact that previously there were located military bases. Between them it was necessary to establish a connection, but so that it remained unnoticed for aerial observers. Therefore, for camouflage and it was decided to plant vegetation around the railroad, which could hide the movement of the machinery. Subsequently, military bases have become not necessary, and a beautiful picture is supported by commercial means. By the way, when you visit these places, you can pay attention to nearby monuments and architecture. The truth is most of them are very pitiful sight of the fact that no one cares for them.
