Package Itinerary

Take a chance to discover one of the oldest towns in the world (around 2500 years old) – Bilgorod-Dnistrovskyi with its Medieval fortress built in XIV century.

The town changed names many times through centuries - Tyra, Belgorod, Ak-Dido, Akkerman etc. Almost each of them means white, because the town is built with a white stone. Even today the name of the town Bilgorod-Dnistrovskyi means “the White City at the Dniester River”.

The fortress used to be a mighty defensive fortification with regular garrison, perfectly supplied to sustain long sieges. The fortress incorporates a number of interesting and at the same time very complex architectural solutions. It stands on a high rocky coast at the estuary of Dniester, surrounded by a deep moat from the three sides. Today the fortress is one of the best preserved architectural monuments of the Middle Ages and is protected by state laws.

We start our tour to Bilgorod-Dnistrovskyi at 9:00am from Odessa and return back around 3:00 pm. On you way to the site you will get acquainted with Odessa region, see its resorts, beautiful landscapes and vineyards. We will also drive along the borderline between the Dniester and the Black sea – a unique place where the fresh river water meets the salty seawater.
