Photographer's Note

The overwhelming treasures of Trubetskoy family have eventually been found by us (my son and me). You can see the entrance to the underground treasury in this picture.rnrnWe make no secret that this place is in the urban village of Kozatske, situated on the right bank of the Dnipro River in Berislav’s region (rayon) of Kherson Oblast. There was a luxurious palace of the Russian prince Pyotr Nikolayevich Trubetskoy (1858 – 1911), who was the owner of a big stud-farm, many vineyards and a well-known winery in the neighboring village Vesele (Cheerful). Now the palace is in ruins, but a prince’s descendant from Holland has started its reconstruction. The prince’s winery is now a prosperous wine-making firm with the funny for the former Soviet Union area name “Prince Trubetskoy’s Public Limited Company”.rnrnAs to the prince’s hidden treasures, we found them in springs at the bottom of the palace hill. Crystal-clear and cold water was what we needed after 77 km of cycling from Kherson. This was more valuable matter for us than any other treasures.
