Unique natural complexes stretch out on the reserve territory: Tovtry Ridge (the former underwater reef of the Sarmatian Sea) and lateral residual hills, canyon-like valleys, caves, forests, steppe and rock-steppe areas, as well as valuable man-made historical and cultural objects not existing anywhere else in Ukraine. The burning bush (Dictamnus albus) is one of the distinctive symbols of the reserve. At the time of reserve creation, there have been only several plants, but now their bright pink flowers glow on the Tovtry slopes.
This area was held sacred by our ancestors. The ancient Rus hillforts have been found there. A sculpture of the Slavic god Rod-Sviatovyt stood on Mount Bokhit in 11-13th century. This is a rare site of Slavic paganism cult; it is created from local limestone in a form of a pillar with pictures of gods, patrons and their attributes.
