Shatskiye lakes And no sharks!

Eh, tired of the Crimean beaches! I want a lake with a tent, catch a fish… And what in Ukraine the most famous lake? Of Course, Shatsky!

To get on Shatsky lakes from Kiev is possible by two routes. The first runs along Warsaw highway (Kyiv-Korosten-Sarny-Kovel) to Lyuboml, where you turn right, to, after passing another 40 kilometers, to be actually in the Shack. The second goes through Zhitomir, Novohrad-Volynsky, Rivne, Lutsk and Kovel, where the two roads converge. What is the difference between these routes? “the son” slightly shorter (550 km against 580 “Rivne” the road), but in the first half (Kiev – Sarna) worse on the part of the pavement, permanently “investigated” repair and road services, and not very scenic. «Rivne” the route takes 8 hours – 30 minutes longer than on “the son”, but it is consistently good road surface and lots of attractions. That’s why we decided to pay more attention to the second option.

The first and only

The quality of highway M06 (E40) on the interval Kiev-Zhitomir because of the proximity to the capital is beyond praise; for the same reason does not cause problems and its infrastructure.After turning to Novograd-Volynskiy asphalt surface becomes slightly (but only slightly) worse, the four-lane road is narrowed by half, and cafes and gas stations are becoming rarer. This continues all the way to the Lyuboml, but after turning on the Shatsk the quality of asphalt pavement increases dramatically: the site Lyuboml – the shack is just gorgeous! Continue reading
