Askania Nova is worth visiting if you're nearby, for example, if you're resting in Genichesk. You should not drive more than 200 km here. In 3 hours you can explore the dendropark and the zoo. Retro Safari is an excursion about which many have heard, but to get to it is a real quest) And what to watch? It's not a safari in Africa...

Cherepashinsky quarry - Ukrainian Maldives Vinnitsa. Beautiful nature, turquoise water, but completely undeveloped infrastructure. You can come here with your lunch for an hour, or come with a tent for the night. Absolutely not worth going here from afar, only if you pass near Vinnitsa.

Buk Canyon in Cherkassy region is one of the most beautiful places in Ukraine. It is a must-see. Suitable for independent visits, neither a tour nor a guide is needed. The time to visit it is about 1.5 hours. The route from the waterfall Vyr (Vir) to the hydroelectric power station on the bottom and back on top.

Odessa, what to see? Yes, there is not much to see for travelers. What you should definitely do is take a walk along the health trail - from Arcadia Beach to Langeron Beach.

Blue Lakes Kamenskoye "Elizavetovskoe kotlovan" - pine forest and sandy beach in one place. You just need to decide on the purpose of rest and choose the right place.

Blue Lake Dnepr and Kamenskoe are the same)
