  • Re-fuel at all. Beautifully decorated in national style. The spectacle of those horses has been unforgettable. The staff very attentive. You can visit without a guide, though, if you don't know the history of the Cossacks, the visit will be soda and uninteresting.

  • We visited the island in February 2017 within excursions for students of Zaporizhzhya National University. Recommend to visit the region during this period of Scythian mill from there overlooking the city, as well as former agricultural fields where you can see wild boar or roe deer in the next crop can be found some birds or birds of prey. There's no infrastructure, so move better on a personal car with a thermos of tea)
