The nature of love



FOR ME, one of the most beautiful places in Ukraine is the Tunnel of Love. It’s a section of a railway track through thick low trees nearly four kilometers long. The tunnel is made by a small train that runs three times a day to bring wood to a fiberboard factory. The train goes from Klevan to Orzhev. The tunnel is a really popular place for young people in love. They go there to take photos because there is a legend that says that if you come with your sweetheart and make a wish, if your love is sincere, your wish will come true. Some people who are just married plant flowers in the tunnel to symbolize their blossoming love. I think that’s quite sweet.  — Tonya
