Cossack Theatre on the Khortytsia Island

Operation: year round
Location: Zaporizhzhya
Included in the following tours:
 
Created on the 500-year anniversary of the Zaporizhian Cossackdom, the Theatre on the Khortytsia Island is working on reviving the Cossack tradition. Cossack theme is a great part of the Ukrainian history, and it makes Ukrainians proud to be ancestors of these glorious worriers. Having had appeared as a self-defending force, the Cossacks have evolved in a cohort of the finest soldiers in Europe of their time.
Thanks to the Theatre on Khortytsia, we can see handsome Cossacks with immutable oseledets on clearly shaven heads, with gorgeous mustaches, dressed in traditional costumes performing tricky Cossack martial Arts and presenting a perfect equestrian show. To make the picture complete, add scenic surroundings of the Khortytsia Island, the mighty Dnieper River around, and sometimes even a special Cossack treat of kasha with horilka!

Dear Unipress:
Many, many thanks for the great job you did in helping me book my June 2002 trip to Ukraine.

I worked with Tanya, and she was great. She worked very hard in helping arrange my hotels and transportation. She was always very prompt in her replies to my emails. Since I speak no Russian or Ukrainian, her excellent English was appreciated.

Unipress got me excellent value for my money in the accommodations you arranged.

Travel to Ukraine is a little more difficult than travel to other nations in Europe (although well worth the extra effort!) I would strongly recommend Unipress to others seeking to travel to your wonderful country.

John Berthoud Arlington, Virginia USA
