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!

I am now back home in Sweden, since 4 days, after a really great week in Odessa. I must have walked between 100-200 km in that city and worn out 2 pair of shoes during that time. And it was with mixed feelings I entered the airflight back home.

I also like to thank You again, Irina, for the great apartment and service You and your office provide, and You can be sure that I have promoted Odessa and your office a lot, among my friends, since I came home - the pictures I took of the city has really impressed them :-)

Odessa might be a worn down city (on its way up), and I understand if many people have a hard time dealing with all the chances in the society, but Odessa really did put its mark on me.

Best Regards,

Ralf, Sweden
