  • Very often I write about all countries, of course I admire them, their sights. And literally today gathered for a boat trip along the Dnieper. And for some reason it dawned on me, because I never wrote about our wonderful city. So here dear friends, if you will be in Ukraine and do not visit the city of Zaporozhye, where the island Khortysa, with its color and beautiful beauty, you will definitely regret it. This is a unique and very nice place, it is sure to leave a trace in your memory. Walk around O. Khortysa, be sure to go to "Zaporizhzhya sich" and find springs with clean water. And turn-this city will also be on your favorite!!!
