Created on the 500-year anniversary of the Zaporizhian Cossackdom, the Theatre on the Khortytsia Island is working on reviving the Cossack tradition. Cossack theme is a great part of the Ukrainian history, and it makes Ukrainians proud to be ancestors of these glorious worriers. Having had appeared as a self-defending force, the Cossacks have evolved in a cohort of the finest soldiers in Europe of their time.
Thanks to the Theatre on Khortytsia, we can see handsome Cossacks with immutable oseledets on clearly shaven heads, with gorgeous mustaches, dressed in traditional costumes performing tricky Cossack martial Arts and presenting a perfect equestrian show. To make the picture complete, add scenic surroundings of the Khortytsia Island, the mighty Dnieper River around, and sometimes even a special Cossack treat of kasha with horilka!
