Dnieper river in Ukraine. Why popular and what places to see there?

Russia & More

The Dnieper is an authentic symbol of Ukraine. It is a river of Eastern Europe flowing into the Black Sea. This river is navigable. The ships go from Podol quay in Kiev to the mouth of the river where it flows into the Black Sea. The cruise ship departs near one of the most beautiful churches in the world, it is the Cathedral of St. Andrew. You can see the Ark of Friendship of Peoples, a monument to the founders of Kiev, the eternal golden domes of Kiev-Pechersk Lavra monastery.

On the way to the Black Sea, the ship passes five large dams that act as a stairway up or down the river.

The first dam that ships reach from Kiev is the Kaniv Dam, located near the city of the same name, the burial place of the national poet Taras Shevchenko. Below, ships usually stop at Cherkassy.

The second dam is in Kremenchuk. Below this second dam, the boat reaches Dnepropetrovsk, it is the largest city on the river after Kiev. Built on the ancient rapids at the top of the ruins, it is as old as the time of the Goths. Dnipropetrovsk, famous for its aeronautical constructions, has many green spaces, huge parks, especially along the Dnieper River that runs through the city from north to south.

The next stop is the city of Zaporizhia. In the 16th century the Zaporizh Cossacks established a historic military camp, the Zaporizhyskaya Setch. They were defeated in the eighteenth century by the army of Catherine the Great.

Below the Kakhovka Dam, the lowest on the river, the ship pulls in the port of Kherson. Kherson was named in honor of the ancient Greek city of Chersonese, located in Crimea. The city has a large number of monuments and military relics. Near the city there is a unique reserve with wild animals - Askania-Nova.

After the cruise ship has passed the shipyards on its way to the mouth of the Dnieper River, it enters the Dnieper Liman, the estuary of the Great River. At the mouth of Liman, on the right bank, is the ancient city of Ochakov. In the time of Peter the Great, it was the Turkish side of the border, and this was the place where King Charles of Sweden fled after losing almost all his army in the battle of Poltava. Today, the city is the seaside resort of the Mykolaivska oblast and an important fishing port.

When the ship enters the Black Sea, it goes to Odessa. Odessa was founded in 1794 ex nihilo by the Russian empress Catherine II. From 1819 to 1859, Odessa was a free port. The Porto Franco district in the city center still captures some of the essence of Odessa in its golden age under the Tsars, with all kinds of modern shops available for tourists. The city is a top tourist destination, with many cafes and nightclubs, miles of sandy beaches and a certain southern atmosphere.

Any resident of the country will tell you that the spirit of Ukraine lives on the Dnieper. To experience, take a cruise from Kiev along the Dnieper to the Black Sea. You will come back from the cruise not only with new friends, but also with new experiences and new impressions.
