TOUR GUIDE. What to See in Vinnitsa

Vinnitsa is a very beautiful city with a rich history. Here you can admire the beautiful architecture of the city, visit the sights, which do not have analogous in the whole Ukraine, and in the evening you can watch a colorful light-music show on the water.

1. The Pirogov’s Museum

The museum is open on the territory of the Vishnya Manor, where the last 20 years of his life lived and worked as an outstanding surgeon, anatomist, scientist and teacher Nikolai Ivanovich Pirogov, who is considered to be the founder of military field surgery, as well as the Red Cross Society.

2. Water Tower – Fire Tower

Water tower was built in 1911 for the first city water supply. Surprisingly, the building of the pores looks almost the same as before. The height of the water tower is 28 meters. Restoration was carried out in the 80 years of XX century. The main difference from the original project is the location of the main city clock on the tower. Previously, they were on the 4 sides of the dome turret, and now moved to the tier below.

3. Light-musical fountain ROSHEN

This fountain is floating. It is built in the channel of the Southern Bug near the Festival Island. There are no more similar fountains in Ukraine and it is the largest floating fountain in Europe. The highest flow reaches 65-70 meters, and the front discharge of water is 140 meters. And all this is accompanied by music, light and laser effects, as well as video projections on a 16×45 meter water screen. Also, the uniqueness of the fountain Roshen is that water is used to it directly from the river, and not from a special pool. So the pumping system is designed to withstand extreme loads. Every day there are different shows!

4. Hitler’s Werewolf rate

Despite the fact that now the former rate of Hitler’s Werewolves is almost destroyed – the complex is one of the most mysterious structures in the central region of Ukraine. The construction of the Werewolves object began in the autumn of 1941, after the occupation of Vinnitsa. The construction involved Polish and Swedish specialists, as well as Soviet prisoners of war. But to preserve the secrecy, all of them were subsequently killed. When the Germans left the bet in 1944, they blew up all its communications with a huge amount of explosives and aerial bombs. So the inexperienced in the history of a tourist will see only a pile of stones stuck in the territory.
