Mykolaiv


Overview

Mykolaiv is a city in southern Ukraine, nestled on a peninsula that is surrounded by the Southern Buh and Inhul rivers. Mykolaiv is attractive because of the numerous possibilities it offers to those looking for leisure and entertainment. Many sanatoriums and resorts, as well as landscapes of utmost beauty and the most unique reserves, surround the city.

Despite being an important shipbuilding center Mykolaiv was, for a long time, a city closed off to the public. This was because the majority of Mykolaiv’s production served the empire’s military-industrial complex. Mykolaiv became open to the public only in 1862, when its sea gate was opened to foreign ships. From then on, the city turned into a large commercial port and has become one of the biggest industrial centers in southern Ukraine.

The Mykolaiv Naval Astronomic Observatory was founded almost 200 years ago, and is currently a candidate for UNESCO’s list of world treasures. Another ofMykolaiv’s sources of pride is the city zoo, considered to be the best in Ukraine and one of the best in all of Europe. The zoo is home to over 350 species of animals.

But Mykolaiv’s true landmark is the Museum of Shipbuilding and Fleet – the only museum of its kind in Ukraine! The museum is housed in a building that is recognized as a monument to Classicism architecture, and keeps over 3000 exhibits, describing the history of Ukraine’s fleet, from its beginnings until today. The country’s oldest yacht club and its longest pedestrian street – the Soviet Street - are also located in Mykolaiv. Numerous shops, cafes and restaurants are nestled on this street, and both locals and tourists like to spend their time strolling down the promenade.

Each year, Mykolaiv and its surrounding boroughs attract more and more tourists. They come here not only to rest and to improve their health in the Black Sea resorts, but also to admire the fantastic nature of southern Ukraine: its clear lakes and granite mountains, relict forest groves and canyons of Southern Buh River, picturesque meadows and uninhabited steppe. And the world-class hospitality of the region is only helping to draw in and enchant more visitors!
