Published on : Thursday, November 16, 2017

UkraineDonbas in Ukraine’s eastern region has suffered war since 2014, but the region is also home to some hidden touristic treasures.

The region is home to a few well known travel destinations. Let’s find out about them –
The village of Hranitne was founded in the 18th century by the Urums – Turkic-speaking Greeks from the Crimean peninsula. Crimean Tatars also came after WWII. Before the war, it was a great place for kayaking, and photographers were attracted by the beautiful scenery. Delicious local cuisine was an added bonus.

Kalmius River – the view on “the other side”
Many of the public and private buildings here were damaged by shelling. A lot of houses are left empty. Lives were lost here. You will find the locals dancing and singing in three languages: Turkic, Ukrainian and Russian.

The village of Oleksandro-Kalynove was already known for developing green tourism in the area. Today it’s located around 40 kilometres from the frontline. Therefore, the flow of tourists has decreased significantly, but the villagers haven’t given up.

The only obstruction in the way of developing tourism here is peace.

Sloviansk, Donetsk Oblast
Sloviansk was a focal point during the war, but now the violence has finished. Its products were renowned as far as Paris and Brussels.

It’s hoped to recreate the old machinery, organize ceramics workshops, a cafe, meeting place and working hub.

Lymansky Raion, Donetska Oblast
This place is known for its unique flora and amazing landscapes. Now tourists here are welcome to come for a rafting weekend on the river, for local photographic exhibitions, hiking and much more.
