THE  ZHYKIV ISLAND

Zhykiv island got its name after Zhykivka river. It’s situated on the right bank of the Dnieper between Konyk and Vodnykiv island. This place is a mix of forests and meadows with a number of water ducts. It is the biggest nature reserve in Kyiv. From ancient times the Kyivan princes were hunting on this territory.

  • There are more than 120 types of unique plants on the island, and 30 types of fish found their place on its coast. That’s why it’s called the fishermen paradise. 

  • Here you can find ermines and many animals listed in the Red List.

  • The unfinished railway tunnel under the Dnieper is a unique object here. So called “Stalin metro” now is a 600-meter long semi-flooded pit, which shows all scope of this unrealized project.

- You have a chance to explore the flora and fauna of this island. Can you collect herbarium or at least take pictures of unique plants?
