Traditional Wooden Hut - UKRAINE
When I saw this card I have to admit I felt a bit chilled... it's hard to imagine a colder set, a wooden hut in the mountains after a snow storm. Thank you very much Kate, I really like your card, my first from the Ukranian Carpathians. This postcard took 9 days to arrive!
The Carpathian Mountains or Carpathians are a range of mountains forming an arc roughly 1,500 km long across Central and Eastern Europe. The name "Carpathian" may have been derived from Carpi, a Dacian tribe. According to Zosimus, this tribe lived until 381 on the eastern Carpathian slopes. The word could come from an Indo-European word meaning "rock".
