Incredible quarries of Ukraine


The nature of Ukraine is diverse and beautiful: we have a gentle sea and high mountains, clear lakes and endless fields with flowers. And one more decoration - man-made, successfully complemented by nature - flooded granite quarries.

Recently, Ukrainians have shown more and more interest to such places and are looking for non-trivial travel locations.

Morozovsky coal mine, Kirovograd region
An unusual quarry is located 30 minutes from the town of Znamenka. Previously, brown coal was mined here, but ten years ago the enterprise went bankrupt and the quarry was gradually filled with water.
