About the place

Near Shantseva Beam grew one of the tallest oaks in Khortytsia - the legendary Holy Khortytsia oak tree.

He was described in his works by researcher Yakov Novytskyi. According to legend, a herd of horses could hide under a canopy of oak. This place was sacred to the Zaporizhzhia Cossacks, here they met and sacrificed a rooster after the successful passage of the Dnipro rapids.

According to reports, it was this tree that healed the wounds of the Cossacks in one night, a mighty red oak, with extraordinary sacred properties.

A place that to this day helps everyone who wants healing. One of the most mysterious sacred places on the island of Khortytsia.
