Pryazovskyi National Nature Park

Zaporozhye region

About park

The whisper of the waves of Azov, the fragrance of herbs and the shimmer of feather grass, the singing of birds and the rustle of reeds, sand spits and warm estuaries. This is a rich land for birds and marine fish. This is one of the best places in the south of Ukraine for recreation, rehabilitation, and tourism.

 

The park protects the vast expanses of the Pryazovia steppe. Rare species of plants and animals live here. For example, part of the population of the red-breasted goose (Branta ruficollis) winters here. You can also find the rare ruddy shelduck (Tadorna ferruginea).

 

The Molochnyi Estuary is the pearl of the park, the vast expanses of which are home to many species of aquatic birds and a spawning ground for valuable species of marine fish. The estuary is separated from the sea by a thin sandy strip – the Peresyp and Stepanivska Spits. The beaches of Pryazovskyi Park are a favourite vacation spot of many Ukrainians and guests from other countries. It is best to visit the park in late spring and summer.
