An intensively historical place, combining prehistoric local Stonehenge, Scythian landmarks, Ukrainian Cossacks reconstruction fort and breathtaking views of the rocks, rapids and the Dnipro river. Established traditional cuisine restaurant with amazing bandura (zither+lute combination) duo. Extreme swimming and fishing in warm season, hiking and cycling,...More

This is an interesting view into the life in Cossack fort, it is a quite small place but still absolutely worth the visit, you also have a good view of the river towards the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station.

Nice place to come and feel how people leave here hundreds years ago. Authentic houses. Also there is a small restoraunt at the site.

This is a miniature reconstruction of a traditional Cossack fort and was most interesting to visit. The highlight was a splendid Cossack show both of foot and on horseback. Their riding skills are amazing.

There are several expositions on the territory dedicated to ways of...More

I recommend go here at the summer if you was full experience. I was there in November and was very quiet and few activities. Recommend go at summer when a lot is happening.

Great day out. We went via local transport, so walked through the forest for around 30minutes- which we loved! I think it was 18uah entrance fee. There is a church in the centre of the complex as well as a little outdoor cafe. If you...More

It is a wood-made reconstruction of a Zaporizhian Sich fortress which had been located quite far from Horitsa island, actually. Being quite cheesy due to that, it's still an impressive place which transfers some kind of cossaks spirit anyway. The church is quite impressive as...More

It was a little tricky to find but a very fun place to see, rich with history. Don't recommend it in the cold of the winter, freezing! Went again in the summer, enjoyed it much more.
