Zaporizhzhya, which literally means “ behind the rapids”, used to be an inconspicuous small town on the Dnieper River bank. Nowadays the city takes a big page in the history of Ukraine. Thanks to the rapids that made surroundings barely reachable, Ukrainian glorious Cossacks have settled here; thanks to the rapids the Dnieper Hydroelectric Plant has appeared, making Zaporizhzhya an industrial giant and marking the Modern World Wonders List as to 2007, along with the Empire State Building and the Eiffel Tower.
The Zaporizhian Cossacks take a very special place in the history of Ukraine. On excursion to the beautiful Khortytsia Island you will visit the most abundant Cossack Museum, will see a reconstruction of the Zaporizhian Sich with inherent architectural details and will enjoy an authentic Cossack martial Arts and equestrian show.
American conglomerate General Electric, Lenin’s Soviet Industrialization Plan, and Modern World Wonders List as to 2007…. are united with something really big. It is the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station located in Zaporizhzhya. The plant has recently become available for sightseeing, and we do recommend it as an interesting learning experience. Dniproges used to be a “modern world wonder” until 2007, after all…
