The Kachanivka Park spreads over an area of 570 hectares (1407 acres) which makes it the biggest park in Ukraine and one of the biggest in Europe. 130 hectares of this area are ponds. There are several architectural landmarks of considerable architectural and historical value on the estate. Dozens of species of trees, hundreds of species of other plants, lanes and paths meandering through the Park, make it a place of paradisiacal beauty. Now Kachanivka is The State Historical and Cultural Preserve/
In the early 18th century there was a khutir (a very small village or a farmstead) sitting at a very picturesque place at the river Smosh. Several times a place to sell. A land owner of Greek descent, a chorister (Mihailo Kachenovsky or Kachoni - therefore Kachanivka) in the court of the Empress of Russia, and an overstressed royal diplomat for Catherine the Great were among the 18th century proprietors of land that has since been transformed into Ukraine’s largest park.
In the 19th century the owners of the Kachanivka estate was family of Tarnovsky's. In the 19th century the estate of Kachanivka was regularly visited by many prominent, and untold numbers of not so prominent, musicians, painters and poets, among who one finds figures of world fame: the composer M. Hlynka (Mikhail Glinka, composed the first Russian opera A Life for the Czar, 1836, and Ruslan and Lyudmila) and the writer M. Hohol (Nikolai Gogol, the author of Dead Souls, 1842, and Taras Bul'ba). Taras Shevchenko, a leading figure in the Ukrainian culture of the first half of the 19th century, was a guest of the Tarnovskys, on many occasions. It was in Kachanivka that he met a woman who was believed to have been the greatest love of his life.
Kachanivka is a place of fabulous beauty, paradisiacal beauty.
It was here that was written and first performed by the orchestra Marsh Chernomor's from Opera Glinka's Ruslan and Lyudmila. Here is the music
