The life of Kharkiv Yuriy Ignatov is like a dream – outlandish corners of the world, funny companies and colorful photos. He made travels not only his hobby, but also his work.
About how he succeeded, in special places on Earth and in relations with his family, the power of tolerance and love for people, as well as on the reverse side of the coin, Ignatov told the publication Observer.
How it all started
I was born and raised in Kharkov. I never wanted to follow in the footsteps of medical parents, so I studied in Kiev at the Faculty of Informatics of the KPI. For a long time he was engaged in macroeconomics in the civil service. Our research was related to the automation of analytical processes, so I worked almost in my specialty. Continue reading
I love and know Vinnitsa well, but I was amazed at the exact wording of Larisa Ivshina, with whom we recently had the opportunity to walk through the streets during the Days of the Day in the city. She said that Vinnitsa is a city of “exquisite details.” Thus the theme of the new material was born.
Vinnitsa does not have a large number of architectural sights or palaces, which at one time “grew up” in Podolia. But it still retains a tangible aristocratic appeal of the early twentieth century – the so-called era of the Silver Renaissance, when the city finally managed to “jump above its head” and make a breakthrough in every sense – economic, cultural and architectural.

EAST, TO BLUE LAKES
The Elizavetovsky pit of the Man-made Blue Lakes in Ukraine cannot be counted: there are both in the Kiev region, and in the Cherkasy, Kirovograd, Zhytomyr regions … Here we will focus on the eastern ponds – in the Dnipropetrovsk and Donetsk regions.
One of them is otherwise called the Elizabethan pit. This Blue Lake was formed artificially near the city of Kamenskoye in the Dnipropetrovsk region in the early 1970s, when housing estates of the then Dneprodzerzhinsk were actively built up, and sand was taken from the Elizavetovsky quarry. The excavation was very fast and voluminous, and at a certain depth, water suddenly and rapidly began to appear. They say that people barely managed to get out, leaving the equipment there. As a result, the pit of the quarry was filled with water with an area of about 200 thousand square meters and a depth of 20 meters, and in some places 40 meters. There is even a legend that the lake somehow connects with the Black Sea and therefore there is no bottom. Scientists and scuba divers say that there is still a bottom, but an untrained person should better not go down there.
