Rybalskyi island is actually a peninsula, but because of its interesting configuration, it is perceived as a separateterritory. Geographically, it’s is a long spit, which separated the Dnipro and the well-known Pochaina river. During the Turkish wars of 1710 and 1718, barks with public supplies for wintering were imported from the harbor of Pochaina. The life of the localswas concentrated around the port and shipbuilding. Until the beginning of the twentieth century, there was a well-known Rybalskyimarket here.

The name, derived from the ancient settlement of Podil fishermen (rybalki), still remains relevant. Now this is a wonderful mix of neglected industrial and wild nature. But people still come here to fish.
