Fodor's Expert Review Khortytsia Island

Zaporoshe Ruins

Believed to have been continuously inhabited since the Stone Age, the historic island of Khortytsia is best known for its Museum of Zaporizhian Cossacks, which features artifact-filled exhibitions detailing the lives of the Cossack people who once lived here. One of its most recent attractions is a replica of a traditional Cossack village, complete with a reproduction wooden church and traditional straw huts. There's also an arena in which riders perform daring vaulting stunts on galloping horses.
