Can be a little hard to find but I visited in 1989 and 2014 and both times found this thoroughly enjoyable. It's still just far enough out of the city to kid yourself you are in the countryside and on my second visit on a weekend in Feb 2014 there was a great atmosphere with families enjoying the food stalls...

This is an intersting Open Air Museum which depicts how people lived in Ukraine 250 to 500 years ago. Most of the buildings are made of wood with thatched roofs. I read some of the other reviews and agree that it is easier to see by car, but I am in my 60's, have been there a couple of times... More

Ok, I am not a big hiker, but even if I would be it is better to visit this place by car. You have to pay some extra for entering by car though. The open air museum is huge and if you are not a determined hiker or if it is too cold, too warm, too windy or you are... More

This is an interesting place but it is very exposed to the elements. Plan a visit on a mild day, try to find an English speaking guide so you can understand more. Except to pay some $20 to 40 for an afternoon for the guide.

A very nice place to feel the real spirit of Ukraine and visit different parts of the country in 1 place. Here you can find old houses dated from several centures ago, mills and other authentic constructions, as well as can eat Ukrainian food and buy souvenirs

If you can't travel all around Ukraine, but want to get some idea of how big and diverse this country is a good idea is to go to this open air museum that has typical buildings from the many regions of Ukraine. These buildings give you some idea of what it was like to live in Ukraine for the past... More

If you want to get lost in a quiet calm place far from the urban life, you should go there, where everything would remind you about life in the village. Especially recommended for those who were born and lived in the village. You will find a lot of things that resemble you your own native village. Open air festivals and... More
