Another unique phenomenon of the city of Zaporizhzhia is that the Dnipro is divided by the island of Khortytsia into two channels, which are called the Old and New Dnipro. There is a hypothesis that this strangeness was formed as a result of a geological fault more than 2 million years ago, which distributed and changed the direction of the course of the Dnipro channel and embraced the newly formed island on both sides.
Baida Island is located on the Old Dnipro, which is fraught with many mysteries, which makes it an interesting monument.
In the channel of the Old Dnipro there was an ancient crossing near the Naumova beam, which was probably well known to the Scythians.
The materials of the Scythian time are recorded here in the form of accumulations of amphora and stucco ceramics. These are ancient amphoras of Heracles, Kherson, Chios production of the 5th-3th centuries BC, molded Scythian vessels, bronze arrowheads of the 7th-6th centuries BC, so this place at one time became a real treasure for archaeological research.
