We really loved this place. There a tons of nice camping spots and paths for walking around. Warning, it can become over crowded on the weekend so if you want some quiet peaceful time check it out on a weekday.

Buky Canyon remains one of the hidden gems of Ukrainian attractions. Located in the heart of Ukraine, about 180 km away from Kiev and 30 km away from Zhashkiv. This is relatively small, approximately 5 km (or 3 miles) long, 20 m (22 yd.) deep and anywhere from 20 to 40 m wide. This canyon was formed by the Hirs’kyi Tikych river.

If you look around you will find the remains of an old flour mill that worked until the rise of the Soviet Union and the arrival of the Bolshiviks.

A little further down the canyon you will find the remains of the first hydro electric plant built in the Soviet Union. Put online in 1929 HPP Buki is now just a shell but still very interesting to explore!
