Located near the town of Kleven, in the dense forests of eastern Ukraine, this natural tunnel has been formed over many years by a passing train. The 3 kilometer (1.86 mile) line is actually a private railway that delivers wood to a local fibreboard factory three times a day.
Locals call it the “Tunnel of Love” and find the luscious green pathway perfect for a romantic stroll, photography, and to make a wish together – local tradition says that if a couple is sincere in their love, then there wish will come true.
The real charm occurs in Spring when the deciduous trees lining the railway leaf out to form a brilliant green canopy. The leafy enclosed arch over the track bursts into a bright green show of arboreous glory.
Aside from all the romantic goop, this is a magnificent example of a transitional space shaped by an unexpected juxtaposition of nature and industry. Here they are in concert; working together to create a memorable space full of wonder.
