You are invited by Kirovohrad (Kirovohrad region), a city that occurred as a defensive fortress of Saint Elizabeth. The city is proud of its status. In the geographical heart of Ukraine, interfluves of the Dnieper and Southern Buh, there is a mark of the country geographical center.
Surrounded by grandiose defensive dirt walls the city keeps unique churches such as Greek church with ancient wall and dome paintings and the Exaltation of the Holy Cross church, an a sample of eclectic architecture.
Walking along more than 200-years’ old park you will know the secret of the city: there are underground catacombs and bomb shelters whose tunnels stretch to Vinnytsia and Kiev. These giant objects were built in the Soviet Union’s times. When local citizens accidently find them during construction work, they inform law enforcement bodies and their representatives start protecting them. To keep you surprised the city will demonstrate you remains of the ancient Chernoles settlements that are considered to be older than Egyptian pyramids (7th BC). This is a special place that has managed to keep spirit and energy of ancient civilization.
Moreover you should see a rare monument of architecture, that is a steel grid tracery water tower (one of the first in the world hyperboloid constructions; there are less than ten similar constructions in the world). For you to have rest Kirovohrad prepared oasis of clean nature in the museum- reserve “Khutir Nadiya”.
Visit this small, cozy and very hospitable city that will always keep some secrets!
