Beautiful Ukraine: Buksky Canyon, the dolphin-rock and the church surrounded by water
Autumn is a time to travel! Don’t let the cold weather to stop you from resting beautifully and usefully. Catch the last warm days and go for a walk. Don’t worry; the list of beautiful places has been already picked up. The plan how to spend the last warm autumn days is below.
Buksky Canyon is a rocky canyon on the river Girsky Tikich near the village Buki ( Mankowski district of Cherkasy region), is one of the most beautiful places in Ukraine. The canyon itself is small, about 5 kilometers in length. This place is unique because there are the ruins of the first hydroelectric power plant in Ukraine .
Before entering the Buksly Canyon, the waters of Girsky Tikich rapidly roll off the granite blocks , creating a noisy two-meter waterfall named Vir. It was built a large water mill back in 19th century near Vir. Today, it is possible to see only fragments.
Denish is a village located 20 kilometers away from Zhitomir. Untouched nature, pine forests, crystal – clear river Teterev, granite cliffs – all this one can contemplate just 160 km away from Kiev.
This is a speciall place for climbers . Granite cliffs above the Teteriv seems like adapted for training. Extreme athletes and outdoor enthusiasts regularly organize tours to these places.
The church , surrounded by water at Husincy
Husincy is now non-existent village in the Kiev region. After flooding the Kanev Reservoir the town was almost completely under water. Its highest point formed a few islands.
In a memory of the village there was left the church, surrounded by water from all sides. Inside the church on the domes and walls still remaining murals and frescoes. A few years ago there appeared a priest who took patronage over the church, and gradually began to make an order in it. He also built a dock. The father goes to church on a rowboat once in a few days. If you’re lucky you will be able to listen to his service, to ask about the church and the history of these places.
