If it is possible to visit places of power, it must be used. And don't think it's far away. Such a place is Kholodny Yar, Cherkasy region, where our ancestors lived before the time of Trypillia culture.
The whirlpool of life and energy here is full of everything: the pond, where the Haydamaks consecrated weapons, ravines and beams filled with cold fog, Semidubova Mountain, where ancient treasures and Scythian settlements are supposedly hidden, Motroninsky Monastery and much more. Maksym Zalizniak, Ivan Honta, Bohdan Khmelnytsky, Vasyl Chuchupaka and other uncompromising fighters for Ukraine's independence come from this area.
Kholodny Yar is the heart of Ukraine. Everything here seems to be waiting for you and wants to share the inexhaustible energy, powerful strength and feeling of a real Ukraine.
