The Dnister Canyon

The Dnister Canyon is a majestic and fascinating natural kingdom in stark contrast with the calm terrain of the Pre-Carpathian and Podillia regions which the Canyon separates. Breathtaking steep hills closing on the river are old enough to remember the Paleozoic events. Contemporary wildlife, which the man has ousted from the planes, has found its last refuge here.
