There is a picturesque valley with a cascade of ponds in the floodplain of the Pronka River, or as it is also called Sovka. It is a real nature reserve in the middle of the bustling metropolis. Several times they tried to destroy it, but despite everything a living nature takes over. These lands also have historical significance, because bells were once cast here for Sophia, and the mystical Vishal Hill is located nearby. We will walk from the lower ponds to the upper cascade and the sources of the Sovka near Sevastopol Square.
