Waterfalls of western Ukraine

My husband and I have been to Niagara Falls, to Mahoe Falls (Jamaica), but, for our opinion, a West Ukrainian waterfalls can make a real competition to the world’s famous falls. Of course, it is too hard to compete with the Niagara. Actually, nobody is going to, this waterfall is the unique in the world. But it is so touristy! Like a Dunn River Falls and Mahoe Falls in Jamaica, like a many other famous waterfalls in the world.
West Ukrainian waterfalls are not touristy (yet!). So you better hurry up to discover this beauty for yourself while it is untouched of civilization that much.
Take a look at these photos (and videos) of waterfalls of the Ternopil region and Carpathian Mountains. I think, this is a case when a picture is worth a thousand words.
So, this is the Kamianka waterfall (on the picture below). It is located by the village of Dubyna, Skole disctict, L'vivs'ka oblast. The waterfall is a part of the Skole Beskydy National Recreation Reserve of Ukraine.

The Nyrkiv (Chervonohorod, Dzhuryn) waterfall (on the picture and video below) is the most interesting in Ternopil's'ka oblast, because it has three names: the Nyrkiv waterfall (it is because the waterfall is located by the village of Nyrkiv, Chortkivs'kyi disctrict, Ternopil's'ka oblast); the Chervonohorod waterfall (it is because in ancient times there was a city named Chervonohorod); and finally, the Dzhuryn waterfall – it is because the waterfall is a part of the Dzhuryn River. The Nyrkiv-Chervonohorod-Dzhuryn waterfall is of two cascades; total height of the waterfall is 15 meters.
