Unique relict plants such as Silene hypanica and Moehringia hypanicus grow in the cracks between the shield rocks, which has never been a sea bottom. On that stones covered with millennial lichen, the eastern racer (Coluber constrictor) and the European green lizard (Lacerta viridis) are still basking in the sun. The waters of the Buh River are the home to one of the last populations of the Dnipro barbel (Barbus borysthenicus).
Buzkyi Gard is the historical name of a Cossack “palank” (an administrative unit) of Zaporizhian Host which was located at the confluence of rivers the Velykyi Tashlyk and the Southern Buh. A “gard” is a special construction for fishing which was in use during the Cossack era. The rapids, i.e. rocky bottom elevations, are still preserved there. A great deal of сossack and haidamak legends is connected with them.
The Rapids of Myhiia are one of Europe’s best natural water slalom trails. Fans of rafting, canoeing and rock climbing come here to practice on the rapids and granite rocks of the canyons.
