Many people associate Donbass exclusively with coal mining. Unsurprisingly, most travelers see this city as a set of harsh shots from sci-fi Hollywood movies. Meanwhile, in the Donbass there are not only a lot of attractions but also unusual establishments, where it will be interesting to visit every traveler.
Reason # 1: Go Down To The Soledar Salt Mine
A real underground city is located at a depth of three hundred meters. Miners, who once worked in the local mines, turned the empty workings into amazing temples (there is indeed an underground working church here), created sculptures and paintings, chapels and grottoes from salt blocks.
Reason number 2: Go To The Svyatogorsk Lavra
Svyatogorsk is only three hours away from Donetsk, and it seems that this is a completely different country. No wonder this place is called “Donetsk Switzerland”. The main attraction of the city is the Svyatogorsk Lavra, located in this picturesque place.
Reason number 3: Try “Sparkling” At The Artyomovsk Sparkling Wine Factory
Here you will have the opportunity not only to look at the entire production cycle of “sparkling” but also to taste all the varieties. They will also tell you how to drink champagne in order to feel its entire “bouquet”.
Reason # 4: Watch A Football Match At The Donbass Arena
It will be interesting not only for football fans to visit one of the best stadiums in the world but also for ordinary tourists, where they not only watch football matches but join the true spirit of the most popular game on the planet. Here you can fulfill the childhood dream of every football fan – visit the players ‘locker rooms, run through the players’ tunnel directly to the bright green field.
Reason # 5: Go To The Live-Music Bar Liverpool
An iconic place for Donetsk with the largest bar in Eastern Europe. Famous bands often perform here, and at the entrance, you will be greeted by a statue of the famous Liverpool four – The Beatles.
