This is a unique authentic Ukrainian history of the settlement of Odessa and it’s southern steppes. Every place, every history and location in this adventure tour are unique & true genuine, with a 250 year old age!
So let's go for the salt from Kuyalnytskyy estuary along the road of the Chumak!
Our city was built of shell rock, which was mining here by the Cossacks. Therefore, we offer to visit the catacombs of the 18th century, the places of ancient mining stones. Curious that today in the 19th century, their descendants still live in them. We will ride through the route of the legendary reed tram, look at the Cossack cemetery on Hadzhibeyskaya road, where still preserved stone-cut Cossack crosses of the 18th century. Let's go through the steppe in between estuary, where 500 years passed the way Chumak & carried salt from this place throughout Ukraine.
Along the way, we will visit the "Museum of the Cossacks", where we will listen to the story about the brave Cossack with an emphasis on why and what they dressed.
We will continue a journey with a hospitable reception and a delicious dinner in the Ukrainian ethno-estate "Cossack family" in the village Marinovka.
