First associations connected with Zaporizhia send us back several centuries in time, and evoke in our imagination the ancestors – kozaky. But time is passing, the past became the history, and the city is living a new, at first sight, not cultural life at all. But even though the industrial facilities and exhausted faces of workers you can feel the atmosphere of the city hidden from sight. To understand it means to feel Zaporizhia, to touch at the same time sharp and vulnerable reality.
