10 reservoirs that arose on the site of spent quarries
In the Dnipropetrovsk region, there are up to 10 reservoirs in different districts, which appeared on the site of spent quarries. The most picturesque is the lakes of the Vilnohirsk quarry, located 100 km from the regional center. Locals call it the “Maldives” because of the crystal clear blue water and snow-white sand on the shore.
In the 1960s, titanium-zirconium ore sands were mined industrially on the outskirts of Vilnohirsk. As a result of the works, snow-white dunes were formed here, which attract tourists.
