Dniester River

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.

River as shake

The Dniester is a river in Eastern Europe.

The Dniester rises in Ukraine, near the city of Drohobych, close to the border with Poland, and flows toward the Black Sea. Its course marks part of the border of Ukraine and Moldova, after which it flows through Moldova for 398 kilometres (247 mi), separating the bulk of Moldova's territory from Transnistria. It later forms an additional part of the Moldova-Ukraine border, then flows through Ukraine to the Black Sea, where its estuary forms the Dniester Liman.
