Reviewed November 6, 2012

I love to ride bikes and have a rest with my husband in this beautiful nature area. There are many places for picnic, swim or active games.

“Nice bit of history”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

The museum and the recreation of the Sich were both very nice. The museum was under repair, and could use some updating, but the exhibits were interesting.

“Worth to be visited & even more”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Khortitsa Island is considered to be one of the most visited places in Ukraine. First, it is a national reserve with unique kinds of grasses and animals as well as rocky landscapes of a beautiful scenery..The island has such an old history so they even believe tht once dinozaurs could inhabit tht place.) Well, for those who arrive to this island for the first time it may be definitely interesting with its museum (expositions of the island's history contain as well some evidences of Norse, Poles, Germans and other nationalities ), horse theatre and a walk to the place of Scythian burial mounds in Protolchye.
