The Historical and Cultural Complex “Zaporizhia Sich”, located in the north-east of the island of Khortytsia in Zaporizhia, is a reconstruction of the Cossack fortress of the 16th-18th centuries, recreating the image of the Cossack capital and the atmosphere of the time.

This picturesque town-museum, officially opened in 2009, harmoniously blended into the surrounding natural landscape and became one of the most interesting attractions of the city. Zaporizhia Sich on Google Maps. Photos by: Alexey Novik.
