Visited as part of river cruise itinerary this open air Cossack fort consisting a dozen buildings and a church. Spent about an hour at the location which was about right. Entrance fee reasonably priced.

This is an interesting view into the life in Cossack fort, it is a quite small place but still absolutely worth the visit, you also have a good view of the river towards the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station.
