Zaporizhzhia has a special charm, as its buildings, in the so-called Stalin Empire-style, are decorated with elaborate patterns, classical columns, and porticos in the neoclassic spirit. One can admire many of them walking along the Lenin Avenue – the longest avenue in Europe! Zaporizhzhia also has many museums, the most popular ones being the Weapon History Museum and the Museum of Retro Automobiles.
The city’s suburbs also hold many points of interests. First, there are numerous unique burial mounds covering the Zaporizhzhia region. The most interesting one is the complex “Kamyana Mohyla” (literally, "Stone Tomb"), made up of huge boulders that used to serve as a special sanctuary for the ancient inhabitants of Zaporizhian area. And of course, laying on the edge of the warm and tender Azov Sea, the region attracts many visitors to its resorts. The most famous of them – Berdyansk, with its sanatoriums and sand beaches – has been for a long time a favorite place for those looking to relax and rejuvenate their well-being.
In recent years, more and more travelers have discovered Zaporizhzhia for themselves. They come here not only to be amazed by its unique sights, but also to experience the history of the Ukrainian people and to feel the powerful spirit of freedom that was endowed to the city by the Cossacks.
