The snake cave

The snake cave is the largest of all caves on the island of Khortytsia, with which several interesting legends are associated.

Ostensibly here before the destruction of the Zaporizʹka Sich lived Ukrainian fire-breathing dragon, who, after the destruction of the Cossack freedom, left the Zaporizhzhia lands together with the Cossacks. According to some scholars, it is with these places that the legend of the origin of the Scythians, described by the ancient Greek historian Herodotus, is connected. The serpent goddess, the greek wrote, forced the hero of the Hellenes of Hercules to cohabit with him. From their union, three sons were born, the youngest of whom was able to pull the bow of Hercules. That's why he inherited the modern South Ukrainian lands. His name was Scythian. A snake cave can be seen in the northern part of the island of Khortytsia. It is located under a huge cliff of rock, called the «Higher Head». The snake cave is located near the Black Rock in the northern part of the island. This is the largest known cave on Khortytsia, which is a crevice in a granite rock. Access to it is complex, so almost no one visits it. The cave is not large in size and damp, which makes it impossible for a person to stay in it for a long time.
