A small inconspicuous town of Zaporizhzhya has grown into a huge industrial Soviet center in the 30th of the last century. Beautiful green town beyond the Dnieper River rapids was condemned to become a manufacturing giant of the Soviet Industrialization years. It all started when in order to make the Dnieper navigable, the rapids were flooded and the water was used for energy generating purposes at the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station. You will ride by this famous hydropower plant and will see the 800 m long open for car and trolleybus traffic dam, standing out high from the Dnieper waters. And though a visit to the station is not included to this excursion, you will hear a lot about it. The station was the biggest in the world when it was built, and the industrial might of Zaporizhzhya, along with other manufacturing centers, has grown out of it.
Having visited some highlights of the modern Zaporizhzhya you will continue to the Khortytsia Island, which is the biggest on the Dnieper River. It has rocky cliffs and vibrant green floodplains, forests and steppe areas, marches and lakes. But the natural beauty of the island is not the main reason for its fame. It is a glorious part of the Ukrainian history and is connected with the Zaporizhian Cossackdom. You will visit the Museum of the Zaporizhian Cossacks History, which displays an outstanding collection dedicated to the brave Ukrainian Cossack worriers. Having emerged as a self-defending power, the Cossacks have rapidly grown in a cohort of skillful and courageous Slavic soldiers, a military force that affected not only the Ukrainian but also the European history.
There are plenty of plain industrial cities in the world. But Zaporizhzhya is not like that. There is a profound story of the nation in the city with unpainted concrete walls…

The Ukraine is a beautiful and fascinating country, but also a difficult one to get around in without local knowledge, especially of the language. It is also one of the very few places I have visited where people are uniformly polite and friendly with visitors and where virtually no one tried to rip me off. Fantastic.
Tanya and Igor worked tirelessly to give me the holiday I wanted at the price (not exorbitant) that I wanted to pay and always with a rare charm and personal attention. I spent two weeks in Odessa staying in a private, rented apartment and I had a brilliant time. It's a wonderful, beautiful and vibrant city. Catch it now, before the package tourist hordes discover it. I arranged and paid for it all by e-mail through Unipress and it was the easiest to arrange and best organised trip I've had in a very long time.
