“Peaceful, Serene, Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

On the outskirts of Kiev, this outdoor architectural museum features homes from all around Ukraine, and from varied historical times, to give the visitor a better understanding of earlier life and times in Ukraine. Good food can be purchased on the grounds and special events frequently coincide with holidays. Be prepared for a lot of walking! This is one of my favorite places in Kiev.

“Great place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

one of the best place in nature, every old small house are interesting to see, big nature place to spend a full day and to eat traditional food.

A lot of green and nature places in Kiev and Pirogovo is one of the best.

You need one bus to be there and the tickets and food are very cheap.

“Interesting place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Here you will get a very good idea of how old villagers in the area used to live through different times. You will even how churches were. Nice place (long walk, or drive in, or by bike), and you can even have eat local cuisine at some small shops.

“Typical conglomerate for tourists”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

I visited this open air museum in December, of course, not the perfect time for this, but it was still interesting. If you are a in Ukraine for a quick visit, then yes, of course, this is an easy to get to attraction to get your feel for Ukrainian traditions, culture, history. However, if you have more time, there are many tours offered through private companies to real Ukrainian villages, where you can truly feel the culture and traditions and get a better sense of people and their rich history. Our tour stopped at the cafe/restaurant which was highly over priced with terrible service. Food was OK. Perhaps in summertime it is much more different, but if you really want to learn something about this beautiful country - take a trip around it and see for yourself.
