The building of the visitor center is an information and educational center of Synevyr National Nature Park. The visitor center hosts the Museum of Forest Rafting, and the Local History Museum, and the exhibition hall will introduce you to the rare local flora and fauna included in the Red Book.
The waterfall has no name, but it has a good reputation. Locals have noticed the very pleasant taste of water pouring from above a long time ago. Tasty water was collected, and bread was baked on it for the whole village. To the right, there is a quiet Black River, which was once used to raft the forest.
On Sokolovets tract the route turns to the left of the river banks, and just from here the most beautiful landscapes open up at the background of the Black River. If you go higher up the road, you can see from above.
At one time, a dam built in the middle of the 19th century blocked the way to the Black River in the picturesque Sokolovets tract. The dam was a complex of constructions, technical units and mechanisms. It was 80 m long and 5.5 m wide.
The dam was used for its intended purpose until 1954, and in 1973, after a detailed study, it was restored, and the superstructures were adapted for the Museum of Rafting, which opened in 1976. The museum accepted visitors until autumn of 1998. After the flood, formidable water left only a third of the structure. An attempt to rebuild the building failed after a second flood in spring of 2001. Now, the Museum of Forest and Rafting is being restored in the tract.
