Top Attractions in Zaporizhzhya

Khortitsa National Nature Reserve

This island accounts for 90% of Zaporizhia charm. It is quite diverse, having forests, beaches, secluded places on river banks, pagan sanctuaries, the reconstruction of the Sich fortress, and stunning views from the hills on the river and DneproGES dam, and more. You cannot even comprehend it from a couple of visits. Highly recommended for everyone.

Motor Sich Aviation Museum

A stunning technical museum, focused mostly on engines produced by Motor Sich plant (including a turbine two times human height, powering An-225, the biggest aircraft in the world), but also having a motorcycle exposition and various minutiae. There is also a military equipment exhibition free of charge outdoors.

The Historical and Cultural Complex Zaporizhian Sich

The Sich, located on the beautiful island of Hortytsa, is a living museum of Cossack culture and history, and is definitely worth a visit. There is a show of Cossack horsemanship and culture in the mornings and afternoons.
You can buy food and beverages inside the Sich, which is only a short taxi ride from downtown Zaporizhia. There is a small admission charge.

Soborny Avenue

New name is Soborny Avenue — the longest avenue in Europe, 10.8 km. The walk from old town to the new town, the walk through the history. My advice to take walking tour. This is amazing historical avenue!
