An authentic settlement of Hutsul hobbits is being built in Transcarpathian region

Andriy Boiechko, a journalist and volunteer based in Kyiv, set forth to create an innovative and authentic village located in the Ukrainian Carpathians. This emerging village, called Hobbithill, will consist of 20 small Hobbit houses built in the ground and covered by grass, as seen in New Zealand’s famous Hobbiton from the iconic film, The Lord of The Rings. Hobbithill will include Hutsulian (Carpathian) traditions, traditional crafts, and a unique cultural experience that visitors can have for themselves. Additionally, Hobbithill will include modern eco-friendly technologies and all the amenities of contemporary civilization.
