Who knows where in Ukraine underwater caves are?

Hi Folks,
I am really looking for with hard effort any information about location of underwater caves in Ukraine.
I found one information even on this forum and left my post in different section but with no reply yet.
I appreciate your help.

best regards
pawel

Hi Pawel,

There isn't much info concerning the underwater caves in Ukraine. They are not well investigated, usually mentioned in the descriptions of some major nature phenomena.
So, Somyn Lake is in Turiysk Region, Volhyn Oblast, close to the Polish border. It's 56m deep, 6ha. There're karst underwater caves there. Some locals show the teeth marks on their legs left by a beast living in those bottomless caves Most karst lakes of Volhyn region are connected with underwater channels. Some are 30m wide
There are some underwater caves near Aya Cape and Fiolent Cape, Crimea. This article is about underwater treasures of Crimea (in Ukrainian only)

regards,
Andriy

Thanks for an answer Andriy,
I was waiting for it for long time. It is great news for me to find out that one of those magnificent regions
is so close to our Coutries board.
I was helping to my friends in discoveries of some parts of uderwater caves in Ireland. I found out from one of Polish cave divers about Ukrainian karst regions however he didn't say we those lands are but really wanted to examine them.
I hope to do some trip into this place you wrote about (Volhyn Oblast) and search for some caves soon.
I am greateful for the article as well.

again thanks for your help Andriy
best regards
pawel

Paweł,
Cieszę się że potrafiłem pomóc.
Oprócz jeziora Somyn, o krtórym pisałem, jest też znana grupa jezior w Szhackim Parku Narodowym na Wołyniu. 48 z 80 Szackich jezior to jeziora krasowe.
Będziesz potrzebował innych informacji - chętnie odpowiem.

Pozdrawiam,
Andriy
