Ternivka village


Ternivka is a village in the Novoarkhangelskyi district of Kirovohrad region that has great potential to become a tourist gem. There is a magnificent building of a water mill on the Syniusa River, which looks more like a castle than an outbuilding. 

The picturesque valley of the Syniukha River with its rocky outcrops, often called a canyon, is fascinating in its beauty. The White Rock, which, despite its name, has a black hue, stands out. The wide steppe expanses with grasses on the high banks create a sense of the grandeur of nature and make people feel their smallness in front of its power.


The French admire the lavender blossoms, and Ukrainians have their own picturesque places! One of them is the Benchyky Mill, located on the banks of the Syniukha River. This bulky water mill building, which resembles a castle rather than an outbuilding, appeared in the early twentieth century and is still pleasing to the eye. 

Near the mill you can see the millstones that have been in use for over 100 years. In the old days, Benchyky Mill was an important economic center of the area, serving the surrounding villages and towns. Today, the mill is a cultural heritage that allows you to learn about history and see how things used to be.

There are a huge number of installations for photo shoots, a souvenir shop with a wide range of products, and a lovely swing.
