One of the most interesting geological objects of Ukraine is located – the rocks of MODR, in Kryvy Rih. These are a true open-air museum of natural origin. The chimerical rocky performances on both banks of the Ingulets River form a picturesque picture and captivate the spirit.

The cliffs received the status of a nature monument in 1975. The array is spread over 62 hectares, where travelers can observe unique openings of iron ore. This area refers to the section of the Kryvy Rih-Kremenchug province of the Ukrainian Crystal Shield, which actually explains its uniqueness. The age of the rocks of MODR is really impressive – it reaches up to 2,050 million years.

Individual names can prevail two rocks of the array. The first, "Eagle Nest", is located in the village of Lower Antonivka – on the right bank of the Ingults. Another, "Small Orlynka", is located in the left-bank part – near a small grotto. It was in this area that ancient Scythians and Slavs-Uchiha were engaged in the extraction of ore.
