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

Everytime full of people, Piragovo museum is a very big park. Inside you can find "small villages" in different period. It's possible arrive here by Mashrutka (the yellow small buses in Ukraine). There are mills, fields, good food, very good food, a lot of houses. The problem is that is so big and one day maybe is not enough.

This place is huge, and has the most amazing collection of old buildings representing Ukrainian architecture old and new. Petting zoo and fun for the kiddies, too, and great food.

A great experience, my favourite open air museum after Glentleiten in Germany. Real big territory, put on your waking shoes. Feels like real countryside and it is a real countryside with historic barns and homes from all Ukrainian regions. My favourite - the Carpathians - see foto.

The museum is immense, probably the full itinerary is more than 5 km (3 miles). You can rent a bike there, good quality but very expensive or bring your own. walking, you will cover only a small portion of the territory. it reproduces different regions of Ukraine with real size replicas, you will go through creeks and forrest. and there...

If you don't have time to explore all the parts of this marvelous country, just drive several kilometers outside Kiev and spend all your day here, The vast area gives you the chance to explore the country within a day. Make sure to set off early.

Deep dive to the past. Trditional ukranian life, crafts, culture, food, music, clothes and entertainment in one place. But... big place, for full day trip.
