Morozivka Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 46 photos
Morozivka is a village in Milove District located 25 km/15.5 miles to the northwest of the district center. It is about a four-hour drive to the north of Luhansk.
The village is located in the valley of the River Kamyshna 10 km/6.2 miles from the nearest railway station of Zorinovka.
There are about 400 houses in the village now with the total population of about 1,000.
In the good old Soviet times “Communar” collective farm flourished here.
It had over 11,000 hectares/42.5 square miles of land in its disposal and produced grain, meat and dairy products.
The village name comes from a very widespread Russian and Ukrainian last name of Moroz or Morozov. There are some people with those names living in the village now.
I traveled there several times to see my cousins who live there.
Each time it was a good experience meeting the villagers and walking around the village.
The villagers are all hard-working people taking care of their households, domestic animals, orchards and gardens. Each household has a well where they get water from and a plot where they grow vegetables and fruit as well as domestic animals (cows, goats and horses) and poultry (ducks, geese, hens).
The village has a huge pond, an old church, a nightclub and several shops. I have visited all those places except the school and the nightclub. Perhaps some other day when I have more time for a stay there.
I enjoyed having some beer with my cousins and friends at the local shop in Broad Street (Shirokaya ulitsa).
Don’t forget your flashlight when you decide on a visit there. The streets have no lights at all. It’s pitch darkness at night.
If you happen to be there, the first contact for you would be Mr.Dmitry Moroz, the local English teacher at the secondary school.
I am sure the high school students would be happy to receive a foreigner at their school. They would be glad to be your guides around the village. If you take your yacht or boat with you, you could check out the local pond and invite your new friends for a pond voyage.
The local ladies would introduce you to milking the cows and give you a lesson of cow care. You could also ride a horse of one of the hospitable locals.
You would be upset by the quality of roads, but not by the people’s hospitality, especially if you bring some of your local drinks such as “Crown Royal whiskey” to treat them.
- Pros:Beautiful scenery, shops, cafes, a nice pond, hospitable and inquisitive people
- Cons:Lots of portholes, no street lights, water from the wells should be boiled before drinking
- In a nutshell:A nice Ukrainian village with hospitable people
There is a direct bus to this village departing from the railway station at 11.30 a.m. You can also get there, if you... more travel advice
Among the historical places to visit I would recommend, first of all: - the old church; - the War Memorial located... more travel advice
