Travel Information

The rear Khablovsky lighthouse is a well-known and inaccessible location in the steppes of the Kherson region because of the disgusting road.

Above it is written: "A gift to the 19th Congress of the CPSU (b)." The inscription is unique: it was the last Stalinist congress, at which the VKP (b) was renamed the CPSU. The next XX Congress was already from a different era and was held under the slogans of debunking the cult of Stalin.
But why is there a lighthouse in the steppe? The Dnieper-Bug estuary is shallow and at one time was a serious obstacle for ships. Now the approaches to Nikolaev and Kherson are provided by navigable canals. They were built just in the second half of the 19th century, it was for their illumination that a system of lighthouses was required. The direction of movement for each section of the channel is shown by pairs of beacons that combine their lights. Khablovskys - 3: the front one is located in the center of the mouth of the Bug estuary, the middle one is on the coast near the village of Luparevo, the rear one is far in the steppe.
Seriously, no one writes about this for some reason, but if you come here, it is better to go from Nikolaev, so you will only shake the last 8 km along the dead dirt road, but if you go from Kherson and Stanislav, then as many as 16. There is a road outside the village of Aleksandrovka will die, and the pits will increase to the knee. In general, spare your nerves and a four-wheeled horse)
