The Dikiy Sad settlement is the ruins of a Cimmerian settlement, which are located in the very center of the historical part of the city of Nikolaev along the bank of the Ingul river, between Artilleriyskaya, Pushkinskaya and Naberezhnaya streets.
The settlement "Wild Garden" was discovered by the archaeologist Feodosiy Timofeevich Kaminsky in August 1927. Since 1990, regular studies of the area have begun. Mykolaiv settlement "Wild Garden" is the only steppe settlement of the Middle Bronze Age found in Ukraine. Scientists have proven that the "Wild Garden" is 500 years older than the famous Olbia, and a thousand years younger than the Egyptian pyramids. The garden in this area was laid by Admiral Greig. The garden got its name from wild trees that did not bear fruit, although officially the garden was called "admiral's".
Today archaeologists can present unique artifacts, which are evidence of the extensive ties of the "Wild Garden" with other peoples who lived in distant lands. Over the past 20 years, more than 50 archaeological sites have been discovered and studied in the Dikiy Sad settlement, including well-preserved "signs" of the citadel: a stone foundation of a bridge bridge, a moat, the remains of a fortress wall; about 30 rooms; more than 70 bronze items (knives, daggers, bracelets, forged cauldrons, bronze plaques, hatchets); 250 items of stone; 150 bone crafts and hundreds of ceramic dishes (cups, braziers, bowls, scoops, pots).
A treasure of axes discovered in 2008 - 13 bronze Celts - has become a real sensation in the scientific world of Ukrainian archaeologists. But, The greatest success was the discovery of a large bronze cauldron (volume 37 liters), which was found in the "Wild Garden" by the famous Nikolaev archaeologist and ethnographer FT Kaminsky.
The archaeological pearl of the Nikolaev region - the settlement "Wild Garden" - is the only archaeological monument in Ukraine of the Black Sea port city of the times of the legendary Troy.
