  • Island khortytsia is the only "live" place-ass, which is called Zaporozhye. The place is very ordinary at first glance and a very unusual when one carefully. Here you can hide from the industrial city of Burns, but his stink will overtake you and on the island. From an interesting, perhaps the only equestrian theatre and it was quite boring to watch the presentation. Nature is nature, always pleases, but again I say: stink of Zaporozhye all the spoils.

  • Just take a walk, breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the scenery of Khortitsa. Museums, types of banks of Dnipro River, horse riding and all this in the heart of the city

  • In October 2016 we visited Hortitsa Island with my large family. We went down to the river, saw a campus of mountain climbers. Area was clean.
