Ukraine: Aktovski Canyon

Also in the Mykolaiv Oblast/Region you can find another spectacular granite canyon seemingly out of place in the central Ukraine – Aktovski Canyon. It is located near the tiny village of Aktove (hence the name) and the entire area is classified as granite steppe – rocky and bouldery but with little forests. The rocks here are some of the oldest exposed granite formations in Europe, and the canyon is around 50m/150ft deep with some awesome panoramic viewpoints from the rim.
