The town of Zaporozhia (Zaporozhye) is situated in the south-east of Ukraine on either side of the Dnieper River. The town itself is about 200 years old, though Stone Age remnants excavated in the area show that it has been inhabited for much longer than that. History tells us that Scythians, Samatians and Slavs have all had a chance to make a home on this beautiful little spot by the river.
