A pearl of Podolia (a historical region in the west-central and south-west portions of present-day Ukraine). A beautiful, picturesque park city Vinnitsia lies on steep banks of the Southern Bug river. History of the city comes back to 1363 when a wooden fortress with six towers was built on a high hill of the left bank of the river for the purpose of protection against the Tatars raids. The military garrison was accommodated here and small settlements sprang up around. One of the oldest architectural monuments of Vinnitsia is considered to be “The Mury” – a complex of defensive installations erected in XVII. Buildings were enclosed with a big wall (in Russian «mur») with towers and loopholes. On the territory of the Jesuit Closter (being a part of “Mury”) is located the Local History Museum. Its arts department could be served as the basis for an independent Arts Gallery. At the left bank of the Southern Bug river stands an unremarkable one-storey building. The name of the person
born here in 1864 is worldfamous. The yard in front of the house is buried in flowers. In the middle there is a big agave “blooming to die and dieing to bloom” – these words said M.M.Kotsybynskiy – a famous Ukrainian author who has been living here for 33 years. The writer’s house is a museum now. At the picturesque bank of the river there is a big stone called “The rock of Kotsybynsky”. As legends say, the great Ukrainian author wrote his early works at this place. During the sightseeing tour visit the Park of Sculpture in the open air called “Historical Busha”. It was founded at place of an ancient walled town. The park is being replenished with new works of sculptors who came to the village in search of inspiration.

Everybody who has visited “The pearl of Podolia” at least once will certainly remember quite and cozy Vinnitsia for a long time.

DnIpropetrivsk region Welcome to the unforgettable Dnepropetrovsk land, the Cossacks’ territory rich in historical events and good hospitable people. Dnepropetrovsk was founded in 1787 by Knjaz (Prince) Potemkin at place of a Zaporozhian village called Polovytsia. The town called Katerinoslav was later renamed in Novorossiysk. In 1924 the city was given its present name. One of the most romantic and mysterious places of Dnepropetrovsk is considered to be the Monastyrskiy island first mentioned in the hagiography of Saint Feodosiy as a place what one of the Christ’s followers Andrei Pervozdanny set his foot on. The island is regarded as the northernmost point of the apostle’s journey. It has got its name after a Byzantine monastery which was erected here in the IX century. Not long ago an Orthodox church was built on the island; there is an ancient cross nearby. As legends say, it was placed by apostle Andrei in the 1 century. The city began to develop intensively in 70-th of the XIX century after the railway has been built here. At that time the oldest bridge of Dnepropetrovsk (one of three) – Amurskiy (or the Old) - was constructed here. As a result, crossing the river by a ferry on the way from Baturin to Perekop
was not more necessary. In 1917-20 the anarchists of Nestor Makhno held the city at times. In 1919 the collection of the History Museum named after D.I.Yavornitskiy was saved from Makhno’s fighters thanks to a bottle of Cossaks’ gorilka (a national strong alcohol drink). Two bottles of gorilka aged 200 years were found by an archeological expedition. An archaeologist and historian Dmitriy Yavornitskiy changed one of two exhibits-bottles in a Writ of Protection for the museum. There is no sense to look for the second one: it was drunk up by the archeologists who have found it. Between the exhibits of Dnepropetrovsk’s History Museum: heraldic and archeological materials, weapons, paintings, icons – there is a unique monument to a heroic soviet soldier – the Diorama “The Battle for Dniepr”. During the excursion you will have the possibility to visit the mansion-museum of Dmitriy Ivanovich Yavornitskiy “the Father of Cossacks”, as contemporaries called him. The atmosphere of real Cossack’s hospitability reigns in this house. Famous authors – Lev Tolstoy, Lesya Ukainka, Ostap Vishnja, artists and musicians visited this cultural and creative centre. The excursion through friendly Dnepropetrovsk will leave pleasant memories and a wish to feel the atmosphere of the city once more.

ZaporizhYE region Zaporozhye – the capital of the Cossack republic. Welcome to the city on Dniepr river with rich history. Lots of shady alleys along the banks of the wide and strong Dniepr river, buildings in Stalin Empire style with eclectic modeling and columns – these are characteristic features of Zaporozhye. In 1770 a fortress named Aleksandrovsk was built on the biggest Khortytsia Island at the Dnieper River with the aim to be an outpost in the Russian-Turkish War. The history of the city goes back to a settlement which sprang up later and was named after the commander of the first Russian Army Alexander Golitsyn – Aleksandrovsk. In 1921 it was renamed in Zaporozhye. Some scientists suggest to consider the year 1552 when Baida Vishnevetskiy built a fortress on the island as the date of birth of the city. It is worth talking about Khortytsia – a National Preserve, a Museum in the open air, a place where a lot of historic events and heroic battles took place, the capital of the Cossack republic – location of the historiccultural complex “Zaporozhian Sich”. During many centuries Khortitsia was used for living, as a cult burial place and as a field of action. Khortitsia was first mentioned in the chronicles of the X century. The Slavs sailed
“from Varangians to Greeks” and used the island to stop, to repair their boats after getting over the severe rapids of the Dniepr river and to have a rest before a long journey. The Slavs made sacrifices to the god Khors asking for help and protection on the journey. So the name of a pagan deity has been reflected in the name of the island. They say the Prince of Kiev Svjatoslav fell here in an unequal battle with nomads in 972. The land behind the rapids of Dniepr river belonged to free Cossacks for a long time. In XVI the Zaporozhian Sich was founded here. The amazing past of Khortitsia is connected with such famous people as Bogdan Khmelnitskiy, Ivan Sirko, BaidaVishnevetskiy. Make a trip to Khortitsia and visit Skifs’ site of ancient settlement “Sovutina skala” dated V-III centuries B.C.; defensive installations of the XVI century, fortresses of the XVIII century on the Baida island, cult complexes of the Bronze Age, burial mounds, burial grounds and many other exponents – the keeper of centuries-old history.

At first gate was called the Southern gates and there were the part of the city defensive constructions and they practically didn’t differ from other watch gates of the city. When the St. Sophia church was built «the Great» gates became the main entrance to Kiev from the south – western side. Realizing its greatness Yaroslav Mudriy ordered to build a small church of annunciation over the gate in order to give the tribute to the leading rle of the Christian religion in the city and in Rus. From the time chronicle springs began to call the Golden gates of Kiev instead of the Southern Gate. The width of the gate is 7,5 meters, the height of the passage is 12 meters, the length is 25 meters. Many enemies of Kiev tried to take the city from the southern side but they failed. The Golden Gates served to the city for 500 years. In the XVII century they were destroyed. The ruins of the gate were covered with earth in order to keep them in safety for the future generation. Only in two centuries during the excavations which were organized in 1832 by architect Lohvitskiy they were discovered.

Odessa catacombs are a network of underground tunnels and labyrinths under Odessa. Most of the catacombs are the former quarries from which building stone is extracted. Nowadays the length of the Odessa catacombs is about 2,5 thousands km. At the end of the XX century the catacombs had caused a dramatic complication of engineering – geologic conditions of the city. More than 40% of the old city is situated in the territory under which mines were. Most (95-97%) of Odessa catacombs are underground quarries where the limestone was extracted which was used for building of the city. The first underground quarries began to emerge in the first half of the XIX century during rapid construction of Odessa as a source of inexpensive building materials – limestone. The extraction of stones was carried using the saws and was so intense that in the second half of the XIX century a vast network of underground cavities became inconvenient to the city. After the revolution the extraction of the limestone on the territory of the city was prohibited because many buildings of the city began to collapse. During the Great Patriotic War the catacombs served as a refuge for the Soviet partisans. There is the information about 1,7 thousands square kilometers of underground cavities.

Rivno is more then seven centuries old. There are both happy and sad pages in the history of this old Ukrainian city. The buildings of Rovno caught terrible fire many times, but nobody managed to annihilate the town. Hard-working inhabitants rebuilt the destroyed town again and again. Modern Rovno is an administrative and economic centre of the oblast (province) being a part of independent Ukraine. Take a tour to Rovno and acquaint yourself with its historical and architectural memorials. History of Ljubomirski’s estate comes back to the beginning of the XVIII century when Stanislav Ljubomirskiy decided to erect a palace on an island in the middle of a huge lake. The Ljubomirskis lived in the estate till 1836. In 1838 they handed it over to a gymnasium for the use. But the head of the gymnasium declined the generous gift because of lacking money for maintenance of such a big building. At the beginning of XX century the palace became a place for fallen-in-love people. They came here to make a declaration of love. Theatre plays were performed and dancing balls were given here.
In 1927 a heavy fire destroyed the palace. One of the remarkable landmarks of the city is the St. Resurrection Cathedral. The St. Protection Church is amazingly beautiful and majestic. It is decorated with 13 big cupolas symbolizing Jesus Christ and 12 apostles. Really worth seeing in Rovno is thousand-years old Ostrog (stockaded town) with prominent memorials – the Ostrog’s Castle and Academy.

After the city passed into the hands of Rumanian the new heads built a symbolic group at the same place: Rumanian ox holding a hoof above the Austrian eagle. Ukrainian students often left water and hay in front of the ox and were persecuted by the Rumanian police. Later the monument to Lenin was erected at the same place, but it stood not long too.
The statues to the authors Taras Shevchenko and Olga Kobyljanskaja, the cubistic monument to the ethnographer and politician Jurij Fedkovich, the memorial to a warrior-liberator stand at their places to present day waiting for curious tourists. The city was built according to the architectural traditions of the Vienna Academy of Arts by the leading architects. Fortunately it was practically not damaged in the wartime of the XX century. There are only three cities in Ukraine reserving their authenticity: Lvov, Odessa and Chernovtsy. Between the most significant memorial of architecture is the Descent of the Holy Spirit Cathedral constructed in 1864 according to the project of Viennese architect Ferdinand Roll. The cathedral reserved its status from the moment of building to 1960 when it was closed in the course of current antireligious campaign. Many years the building was empty. In 1976 the reconstruction of the cathedral began: it was intended to be a show-room of consume-goods and a picture gallery. In 1989 the building of cathedral was returned to the Orthodox church. The remains of defensive redoubts of the period of Russian-Turkish War 1768-1774 let us feel a spirit of military confrontation which reigned in the city located at the edge of World’s empires during many ages.
