There are also cute dioramas to see, one on the construction of the Dnieper River Hydroelectric Station and another on the battles fought by the Zaporizhian Cossacks. 

Reconstructed after a Zaporizhian sich from the 1500s, the complex is a huge attraction for tourists and visitors to Khortystia Island. 

In the summer guests also get to watch battle re-enactments by actors donning 16th century clothing.

Zaporizhia Square

Used to be Lenin Square, until 2016 when the statue of Lenin, largest in the Ukrainian territory, was dismantled and removed from the centre of the square. In place of it now sits the image of a Zaporizhian Cossack.

The square is situated at one end of Sobornyj Prospekt, opposite the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station, and is monumental to the significant changes that have taken place in Ukraine.

The main hall of the building holds about 60 vintage cars of Soviet brands like ZIL limousine, Volga and Lada, and outside guests will find military tanks, personal carriers, oilers and artillery that date back to WW II. Each of the vehicles is maintained and kept in good working condition by the museum.

Zaporizhya Cuisine​

Ukrainian dishes are delicious and diverse, influenced by the country’s climate conditions, neighbouring countries, and rich pliable soil. Lots of Ukrianian recipes contain quite a number of ingredients, the most constant being garlic. For instance, borscht, a national favourite, is made of meat broth, vegetables, beetroot that gives it an unmistakably red colour, and served usually with garlic fritters.

It is a simple but tasty dish of chicken filet combined with butter, eggs and bread crumbs, then baked or fried. Another dish you can find in Ukraine is syrniki, a light and airy breakfast dish made from flour, eggs, sugar and cottage cheese.
