Information about the health resort “Shayan”

The destination of eco-tourism – “Shayan” – it is the pearl of Ukrainian Transcarpathia. Shayan is located not far from the legendary Tysa river, in the most attractive region of Transcarpathia with its unique climate, rich flora and fauna, mixed forests and a large number of mineral water headsprings. 

Shayan is a resort village which is located 15 km from Khust, near the Romanian border, at an altitude of 210 m above sea level, known for its mineral water headsprings. 


There is a legend about the origin of the village:

Once upon a time, evil enemies attacked the village, set fire to houses and killed many people.

And only one family (with the surname Shayan) managed to hide in the woods. The enemies rushed to them and killed firstly the father of the family. Consequently, in the place of his death, a high mountain - Shayan - has grown. An exhausted mother, proecting her son, could not save a guy who was shot by an arrow. Mother put him on the green daisies, and at the same time the smallest mountain Shayanchik grew. The women made further few steps and fell without any strength. Mountain Shayanykha is currently rising up there.

Later, the mineral water flowered from the bottom of the mountains which has been filling the blood with health and strength.

Nowadays, the village of Shayan is surrounded by three mountains: Shayan, Shayanycha, and Shayanchık (known as Great Shayan, Middle and Small Shayan).

The exceptional quality of mineral waters, beautiful landscapes and a favourable climate contribute to the rapid development and popularization of the resort.




The climate of Shayan can be defined as a climate of mountain hollows. Its territory is surrounded by mountains (height 350-440 meters). A ridge of volcanic mountains, that are surrounding the resort, protects it from mountain winds and valley drafts, which helps to create a local microclimate with almost windless mild weather, often different from the climate of the nearby Tysa River and mountain ranges.

The average annual temperature is 8.7 ° С.

The hottest months are July and August.

Absolute maximum temperature of the air - 40 ° C, absolute minimum - minus 30 ° C.

The average annual rainfall is 1029 mm.
