Where to relax in Ukraine in summer

You don't have to travel far to see this amazing world! And it's true! We'll tell you where to go on vacation in the Kyiv region to gain new strength.

Sakura Island

The location is in the village of Volodarka. There is a huge park here. More than 3.5 thousand different trees, bushes and flowers are planted on its territory.

There are also many decorative cherries growing here. They are the ones that attract tourists. Local Japanese sakura trees bloom at different times of the year depending on the weather conditions.

During the walk, you can notice many small trinkets: a carved bench, a stylized canopy with gorillas on the roof, sculptures of various animals. Swans, geese, and ducks swim on the Ros River.

You can also meet the sea monster Leviathan here. Although this is only an imitation of his remains.

By the way, the animal is described in the Bible as a creature endowed with enormous power. It has a large toothy mouth, from which fire and sparks fly, and smoke comes from its nostrils. Its scales are also impenetrable to any weapon.

To escape the heat, head to the waterfall. There is a sign near it that says "Healing". Whether it is true or false is anyone's guess. Next to the waterfall is a stone bench supported by frogs. You can sit on it and catch your breath.

You can also see the Scythian ruins of Panticapaeum. Translated from the ancient Iranian, the word means "fishway".

There is a grotto in the center of the park. Inside is a cave with a fountain, and on top is a recreation area. It offers a magnificent panorama of the entire location.

Not far from the children's area, there are elephant figures. They are named after a German scientist who found the remains of this animal species. They are also part of a man-made fountain.

Connoisseurs of oriental culture will enjoy the rock garden. Behind the installation is a pirate ship, which is a prototype of the Santa Maria. In 1492, it participated in the first expedition of Christopher Columbus.

You can also go to the menagerie here. The island is home to deer, alpacas, goats, ostriches, peacocks, storks, and fallow deer.

If you're planning a weekend trip, you can book a house or cottage with all the comfortable conditions for your stay.

Sakura Island is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 9:00 to 20:00. Admission is free for children under 6 years old.

You can get to the attraction from Kyiv by bus or by your own car.
