2.5 to 3 hours from Odessa by train to Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi (there are 3 round-trips daily, with a very cheap ticket). The route is quite interesting. The town of Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi, is an ordinary provincial city of Ukraine. Βut what's special is the Akkerman Fortress (about 15...More

Situated on the vast estuary of the River Dniester, this massive fortress is impressive because of its sheer extent. It has a rich history stretching back many centuries with remains from each period. From the ramparts you can see the estuary. Worth a visit just...More

Behind the ruined donjon there is a wonderful panorama of the courtyard overgrown with grass, on which the centaur did not wallow. And between the battlements of the fortress walls beyond the river - a wonderful view of Scythia, which stretched, as Herodotus wrote "from...More

The fortress is the big thing in this southern ucrainian city. You need a ticket to enter the fortress but than you are free to roam the huge area inside. From some ramparts you get very good views of the river/sea.

The beautiful city of Odessa offers a lot to the visitor, but when it comes to side trips out of town the choice is rather limited. For people with some historical interest the best excursion is probably to the Akkerman fortress on the west side...More

Loved it, a great tour with a very informative guide. The history is mind blowing, and to see the remaining structure showing beautiful views of the lake and Black Sea is a highlight. Worth a look, a nice drive, close to Odessa
