Kosiv is a small town near Carpathians. It does not have historic center, most of the buildings have 2-3 floors. You can walk along two streets - Gvardiyska and Nezalegnosti.

In the central square located the main city museum - Hutsul museum which we visited. If you want to learn the culture Huzuls you here (the yellow building on the left).

In the center unfortunately were build several 5-storey houses. This is legacy of the USSR. They have traditional for this region "carpathian" roofs.
