It is a botanical phenomenon - the green leafy tube in a woodland about three km long, which is created by trees and shrubs intertwined with each other.
It is part of the railway lines, linking Klevan with Orzhiv. The gorgeous corridor provides a passage for a private train transporting wood to a local factory. They say, a fine-arched forest tunnel was shaped by a regularly passing train.
The amazing Tunnel is a Mecca for tourists and loving couples. There is a legend that says if a pair of sweethearts makes a wish while walking along the Tunnel, their wish will inevitably come true.
Some newlyweds plant here flowers, which symbolize their feelings. Even in a wintertime the place is charming - snow-capped trees render the Tunnel of Love a mysterious look.
In 2014 Japanese director Akiyoshi Imazeki produced the romantic drama "Tunnel of Love: The Place For Miracles." The plot is directly related to the Ukrainian natural wonder.
