About park

These are unique places which, despite the proximity to the skyscrapers and highways of multi-million Kyiv city, have retained their primevalness. Holosiivskyi National Nature Park encompasses 11,000 hectares of forest lands with impassable swamps. It is of interest to see the plantations of the common beech here which have been acclimatized perfectly in this unusual to them area. Among the main jewels of the park, there are the age-old oaks, which are scattered almost throughout the whole territory. Some of them are about 500 years old.

Elks, roe deer, hares, foxes, rare species of forest birds have found refuge and feel safe on these lands. Here, right next to the big city, 24 species of plants listed in the Red Book of rare species of Ukraine can be found, including the small pasque flower (Pulsatilla pratensis), Stipa borysthenica, the Siberian iris (Iris sibirica), the martagon lily (Lilium martagon). Rare fauna species are represented by the smooth snake (Coronella austriaca), the otter (Lutra), the stoat (Mustela erminea), the Old World swallowtail (Papilio Machaon), the European stag beetle (Lucanus cervus), the musk beetle (Aromia moschata).

This is the place where prehistoric humans hunted, Scythian tribes lived and pagan rituals took place. In these forests you can still feel the nature that helped our ancestors to build Rus and the Christian faith thousand years ago. In addition, in these forests you will see the fortifications designed to protect Kyiv during World War II. The nature becomes history here.
