  • Khortytsya island is large enough. The network has an interactive map indicating Islands attractions. Their so much that it is necessary to take a bike and there is such a possibility, and forward. Most untwisted place Museum of Cossacks and +. Infrastructure, civilization, cafes, etc. can be an hour walk, going to museums, etc. A lot of people, but not tiring. Smooth Tarasova stitch with memorable characters, places of worship, places of power, temples, etc., you can take a tour and specially trained people. I wonder about everything. Advise. Tour hours at 2-3, will learn a lot. Or you can head towards the southern part of the island. Equestrian Theatre (mostly in the warmer months, on their website there is a schedule on once-amusing) works there or under the order or by event (Christmas, shrovetide, etc.). But this is not the main thing. There is a place almost wild, but of extraordinary beauty-Protolche. Settlement of 14-15 centuries. Traces of settlement are few, but there are. Visit necessary. On the island for lovers should be min. 3 days. Of course, you can in the period from May to October, take the pleasure boat and for perimeter 2:00 bypass (obplyt'?) this island too, you can experience through the gateway at Dneprogjesse. Lots of interesting places, with Crete compare. But our. Only positive emotions, parking, hotel, 3 restaurants, recreation facilities, including comfortable, kafeshki, climbing, table tennis, beaches, just legs resemble. But the best from May to October. The rest of the time for the weather, mushrooms, skis, needles, walruses.
