    Vorokhta (Ukrainian: Ворохта, Polish: Worochta) is a tourist spa town, located in Western Ukraine, in the Carpathian Mountains. It has only around 5,000 inhabitants, but due to a constant flow of tourists, its population almost year round is bigger.

    Located on the height of 800 meters above sea level, it is famous for its close ties to the Hutsuls - an ethno-cultural group of Ukrainians who live in the Carpathians, often regarded as a Hutsul capital.

    Vorokhta is surrounded by the Carpathian National Nature Park, it also is the center of winter sports, with several ski-lifts. In 1919-1939 it belonged to Poland and was known all over the country, attracting many tourists, fascinated both by the mountains and the Hutsuls.
