Cheap Krivoy Rog Vacation Packages
Krivoy Rog is a city in the Dnipropetrovsk region of Ukraine. After having derived its curious name from a nearby lake that had the shape of a crooked horn, it is also Europe’s longest city for its astronomical stretch of 130 kms along the region’s iron ore deposits. Kryvyi Rih is the leading steel-industry city of Eastern Europe, but (astonishingly) it also offers a dual treat to its visitors with its lush green landscape and a profound architectural identity. The architecture here ranges from Eclectic and Neoclassical to Stalinist and Contemporary styles, and numerous architectural examples of these four styles are evident throughout the city. If you prefer puppet shows, theatre, circus and live performances, you will find this city nothing less than exemplary.
