Dnister canyon

The Dniester Canyon is one of the seven wonders of Ukraine, the largest in Ukraine and one of the largest canyons in Europe. The Dniester canyon is the main attraction of Horodenkivshchyna.

It is a unique and most picturesque corner of wildlife in Ukraine and is not inferior in beauty even to the Carpathians and the Crimean mountains. Formed by the Dniester River by leaching rocks from the Podolsk Upland. On a 250-kilometer section between the mouths of the Golden Linden and Zbruch flows through a distinct canyon-like valley with a depth of 80-200 m, forming picturesque curves of the river - meanders. The canyon has a complex geological structure with numerous outcrops of ancient rocks. Here are preserved unique outcrops of rocks, rocks, grottoes, caves, some minerals, original forms of weathering and areas with a unique geological structure.

Стіни каньйону стрімкі, місцями пологі, задерновані трав'яною і кущовою рослинністю. Значні коливання в рельєфі на коротких відрізках надають місцевості гірського характеру.

A powerful complex of sedimentary strata from the youngest — anthropogenic to the oldest — Silurian deposits of the Paleozoic era is exposed here. It is a unique geological encyclopedia that clearly records the evolution of the earth's crust and the life that existed in marine and continental environments more than 400 million years ago. Outcrops of Silurian and Devonian deposits deserve special attention. These and other exposures are of great scientific and cognitive value, and some are of world importance. Rock outcrops on the Dniester, the so-called walls, are natural monuments, the like of which there are practically no others in the world.
