Kayaking on the Lower Dnieper Fills

Today, the bulk of the unsinked floodplains is preserved in the Kherson region, on the Lower Dnieper: from the Kakhovka dam to the Dnieper estuary.
If you want to spend the weekend off the couch or come to the Kherson region to relax, there is one great option – a kayak ride along the Dnieper plains.

In general, the floodplains, that is, the swampy sections of the Dnieper, where the riverbed is divided into branches separating the floodplain islands, are a unique ecosystem. Floodplains of the Dnieper formed during the last glaciation – 20-25 thousand years ago. Some scientists and researchers believe that the floodplains initially extended from Kiev and right up to the Dnieper estuary. Favorable natural conditions and intricate labyrinths of the duct allowed our ancestors to hide from enemies. This is how gradually the fortified Cossack settlements arose – the Sichs.

Shukhov Tower

Today’s “Point on the map” is indicated by a remarkable piece of engineering art of the early twentieth century – one of the surviving towers of Shukhov in Nikolaev

The Northern Black Sea region, where Nikolaev is located, always suffered from a lack of water. People who lived in these parts, differently adapted to this problem.

The unique, unique in Ukraine Museum of precious and decorative stones is located 55 kilometers from Zhytomyr in the urban village of Khoroshev.
The unique, unique in Ukraine Museum of precious and decorative stones is located 55 kilometers from Zhytomyr in the urban village of Khoroshev.

Many have heard about the museum, but not everyone managed to see the luxury and wealth that are hidden in the deep bowels of this land.

Near the houses in the village you can see cars loaded with firewood. There is nothing to be surprised, because this is the only non-gasified district of the Zhytomyr region. The apartments are heated with electricity, and in the private sector with wood. Along with colorful shops and entertainment venues are lonely abandoned houses. Here, as in large cities, people are in a hurry to drink aromatic coffee, although there are no coffee houses or tea clubs in the village, but only a metal trailer at the bus stop. Nobody allocates millions of hryvnias to street dog sterilization programs. Dogs look deep into everyone’s eyes and expect that the good soul will at least treat them to something. Time seemed to stop in the local streets, some of which still glorify the names of Marx and Volodarsky. However, local patriotism is manifested everywhere in state flags and interesting monuments. According to an old habit, most locals call their regional center Volodarsk (the former full name is Volodarsk-Volynsky). Khoroshev is famous in the world for his Volyn deposit of chamber pegmatites, where valuable minerals of beryl and topaz occur. Continue reading
