Preserve of Askania Nova

 

The reserve "Askania-Nova" is located in the Kherson region. Here is an amazing nature. This is almost the only in Europe pristine corner of the steppe, which has never been cultivated by man.

The biosphere reserve "Askania-Nova" was founded by German landowner Friedrich Falz-Fein in the late 19th century. The German landowner allocated a piece of pasture land and created a reserved area where unique animals and birds lived. Rumors about this grandiose zoo have gone all over Europe.

Those who love wild nature, like the magnificent steppe, where you can feel a rich variety of plant smells. At any time of the year the steppe impresses with unique colors, which are constantly changing. In the spring, the silver waves of the feather-grass gently gleam in the sun, dark flesh gives the fescue, the red tulips glow brightly, attracting seductive hyacinths in blue and purple tones, the chamomiles gently white. When Austrian flax blossoms, the earth is covered with a light haze. From the wild steppe is a peculiar oasis - a dendrological park, which includes a botanical park, a forest-steppe zone with oak forests and a new park. You can take advantage of the services of guides and take a walk in the tourist paths, shady alleys under the crowns of century-old trees.
