Work trip to Bessarabia with the European project Geographical Indications in Ukraine: Akkerman fortress
The Ukrainian “Wine and Taste Road” united the most interesting places for wine and gastronomic tourism in the Danube Bessarabia. Among them – wineries, cheesemakers, productions of meat delicacies, as well as natural and historical locations in the region. The route starts in Odessa and runs through the whole of Bessarabia. “Road” is a product of the project “Support for the Development of the Geographic Designation System in Ukraine”. The initiator of the project is the European Union, the goal is the development of gastronomic and agronomic tourism.
Akkerman or Belgorod-Dnestrovska fortress in the Odessa region is a historical and architectural monument of the XIII-XV centuries, which is washed by the waters of the Dniester estuary. Powerful defensive walls and towers, almost completely preserved to this day, indicate to us how significant and impregnable this building was. How many historical events and medieval secrets do these ancient walls remember? This makes the fortress incredibly attractive for tourists. On the territory of the fortress, knights’ tournaments are held and a medieval cafe works, where you can taste dishes and drinks cooked after recipes from the XV-XVI centuries, listen to medieval music, shoot a bow, try on knightly armour and take part in staged battles.
