Surely most of us have heard about the Zaporizhzhya Cossacks, about the island of Khortitsa. This is a visiting card of the city of Zaporozhye, and one of the attractions of all Ukraine. He who was in Zaporozhye and was not in Khortitsa was not in Zaporozhye. Such places in our country are worth a visit.

Khortytsya Island

Khortytsya is an island in the middle of the Dnieper River. It is also a national reserve and a unique historical place. In 2007, the island of Khortytsia was recognized as one of the "Seven Wonders of Ukraine." He is beautiful in his nature. In a relatively small area, you can find meadows, steppes, and even coniferous forests. However, Khortytsia is not the only known nature. The island has a huge history, which is known far beyond the borders of Ukraine.
The first inhabitants lived in the 3rd - 2nd century BC. The stone sanctuaries that have survived to this day, but which date back to the 2nd millennium BC, testify to this. The next inhabitants were the Scythians, who lived on the island from the 7th to the 3rd century BC.
But, of course, the most famous residents of the island of Khortytsya are the Zaporozhye Cossacks. The first Cossack fortifications appeared in 1556 and since then the island has been the center of all Ukrainian Cossacks. There are many different books, legends, films about this place. But it’s better to see it all with your own eyes.
