Culture of Zaporozhye. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Zaporizhia is a large industrial city, one of the most important industrial centers of Ukraine. It does not at all resemble those industrial cities that were actively rebuilt during the Soviet period. Many shady avenues are broken on the banks of the Dnieper, and all the streets of the city, not to mention the parks and squares, are simply buried in the abundance of greenery. Right after DneproGES there is a small area, which locals call Sotsgorod. This is the very realm, where the architectural style, called the Stalinist Empire, rules undividedly. The houses here are all majestic and high, with columns, fountains and porticos, as well as large courtyards.
Modern Zaporizhia is a city of factories and metallurgists; it is the presence of large industrial enterprises that determines its appearance. In the central area of the city are modern … Open
An important landmark of the city, which will be appreciated by lovers of architecture, is the Glinka concert hall, which simply amazes with its strict, majestic and calm architecture. The real adornment of the city is the "Zaporizhia Ukrainian Music and Drama Theater" named after Magar, whose unusual facade with figures of collective farmers and workers is something pompous, but at the same time very harmonious.
Anyone who did not see the Dnieper was not in Zaporizhia. Its graceful horseshoe-like view is good in any foreshortening, not every city of Ukraine can boast of such attractive and interesting industrial attractions. On both sides of the horseshoe-like view there are two remarkable parks: on the right bank there is the "Energetikov Park" with its ancient poplars and spreading lindens and on the left bank the Metallurgists' Park, very quiet, shady and calm.

As in any large city, in Zaporizhia are accessible the most different centers of leisure and entertainment. A lot of options for active recreation in Zaporizhia are connected with Khortitsa. … Open
In the city there is another important natural monument, from which originates Zaporizhia - the island of Khortytsia - national heritage of all of Ukraine. The island is attractive not only for its Cossack past. It is truly a unique nature reserve, which is not called the pearl of the Dnieper in vain. On the island in miniature are all types of landscapes, which are typical for Ukraine. Here there are steppe, forest-steppe, and floodplains, meadows, and forest, and in the northern part of the island there are even rocks. The vegetable world of Khortytsia is incredibly diverse, and the entire southern part of the island is a protected area. The island is connected with the city by one of the most beautiful bridges in Europe – "Preobrazhensky". The historical past of Zaporizhia is rich and multifaceted, even large-scale factories and industrial centers could not eclipse its monuments.

Iconic cultural sights of Ukraine

The Olesko Castle is located in the Lviv region. In this 14th-century building that stands on a hill, once lived the great polish king John III Sobieski. In the 19th century, it was damaged by an earthquake, after which it was restored. At the moment there is an art museum in the castle with hundreds of wonderful exhibits from the 10th to 18th centuries: paintings, decorations and sculptures. Visitors can find ancient statues in the garden. In Poltava there is a snow-white monument-colonnade called the Rotunda of Peoples Friendship or the White Gazebo. It was opened in 1909, built in memory of the Battle of Poltava in 1709. The columns look like a horseshoe shape. This is a kind of tribute to the legend, according to which a local resident shod Peter the Great’s horse, which decided the outcome of the battle. … Open
