Hetmanskyi National Nature Park

Sumy region

About park

The charming and quiet river Vorskla flows through the park. Like a necklace, it unites natural and historical sites, flowing from ancient Scythian burial mounds through the impressive Bakyrivka floodplains, the protected Lytovka pine forest, the emerald Khukhra meadows and to the picturesque Castle Hill. And there begins the Bilsk Hillfort, once one of the largest cities in Europe, which some scientists identify as the main city of the Scythians – Gelonus.

 

You can take a 130-kilometre water route along the Vorskla River in the park, as well as become acquainted with the local environment – a sanctuary for rare flora and fauna.

 

Many adventures await tourists who enjoy active recreation – hiking and biking, beach recreation, amateur fishing, and various cultural events.
