During Uman from Odessa tour you will get acquainted with the masterpiece of landscape art with the spirit of Greece: the white statues of Greek gods, the Crete labyrinth, and of course, the underground river that leads to the gloomy kingdom of Hades. And also you will discover a fascinating love story of Stanislav Pototskiy and beautiful Greek girl - Sofia Witt, when in 1796 Stanislav Pototskiy decided to recreate a corner of Greece and to present it to his beloved wife, so that it would remind her about her native land. Gift was presented to Sofia in 1802.

Upon arrival to Uman from Odessa we will start our exploration from the Main Alley which is beautifully lined with chestnuts and lindens and goes all the way to the Lower Pond. The so-called Rose Pavilion dominates at the Island of Love, which is located on the Upper Pond. The park's attractions were designed to be based on contrast and on swift changes of impression. We will also see The Valley of Giants - remarkable scenery design with its chaotic conglomeration of granite boulders, which looks as though giants themselves really built it.

A special place in Sofiyivka belongs to the Dead Lake, from where we can take a boat that floats into the Styx River – 224 meters underground river, a man-made canal going through the stone thickness without any artificial illumination. At the entrance to this grotto and on the bank of the pond there are white-marble statues of ancient gods and heroes as well as of real historical personages.
