Take a bike or a walk down to this river where the locals water their cows. You may also meet goats, sheep and other friendly animals on the way. Once there, you can search for a place to swim or if you've rented kayaks or tubes in Kyiv, you can enjoy the river.

Shopping
If you are coming from Kyiv or either Airport, this is the best place to stop on the road to Zuybria to buy all of your groceries. They also sell lots of housewares and other things you might like to buy. It's a huge store and nothing else like it in the Zubyria area.

There are two small stores in the village, about a 3 minute drive or 20 minute walk from my cottage. You can get basics here, but best to do your main shopping at RC Mini (20 minutes away by car) or in Kyiv.

Rent bikes at Avantyuryst and use them on the paths on their territory. For an extra fee, they will deliver bikes to you at the cottage in Zubyria for your use in the area. Just be careful on the highways and always wear a helmet.

Take a one-way guided trip down the river with Avanturist. They will provide transportation to a drop off point and meet you back at the complex.

Food
There are no restaurants in our village, and your best food will probably be prepared on our terrace grill. But there are a few options 20 minutes away, which I list here. For real tasty food, check out my Kyiv Guidebook.
This restaurant is inside a cottage complex. They have summer activities like kayaking and a simple restaurant. There is also tennis and a swimming pool. Worth checking out if you want to see the river and have a mediocre meal outside of the cottage. Call in advance to make sure they are open and which amenities are available for non-guests.

I love Zhenya the crab and shrimp man on the side of the road. If you order in advance, he’ll cook up a delicious platter of seasoned Ukrainian crabs. Or buy from him and cook them at home.
