It was known as a part of Great (European) Schytia. In the 7th and 6th centuries BC, Greek colonists had founded a commercial colony near the Thracian coast city and the town was named Alektor. Archaeological excavations also point to the fact that previously in the near proximity of the area existed the old Miletan (ancient Greek) colony of Pontic Olbia, and it's supposed that the same Greek expeditions settled Alektor.In the 1st century BC, Alektor became a Roman colony and part of Roman empire.

As a result of the migrations, the city fell and the inhabitants lived in small settlements digged in the shores of Bug and Niper rivers.Use our Ukraine vacation route planner to arrange the details of your trip to Ochakiv and other destinations.
