Fun look into Historic Kiev

Inexpensive entry after a short drive from Kiev. There's a lot of walking, but the atmosphere and history lessons are worth every step.

First of all: the museum is kind of off the beaten track. You could go there with a combination of trolley buses and marshrutka's, but even then it's a 2km walk from the bus stop. We took a taxi from Maidan for 150 hryvnia. The taxi back was a bit more expensive, but we got it down to 250 hryvnia.... More

This is an open-air museum of the Ukrainian villages from different districts. Very nicely set with the natural landscape as the background. Take the electric car to see more, as the museum covers a large area, too much to walk.

I love old houses, buildings, gardens, flowers and walking on a summer day, so this place was perfect for me. There are a few beer stands located throughout the park for your comfort, and one main eating and beer street where there was all kinds of foods being cooked. The entrance fee was around 30-50 Hrivna... You can rent bikes... More

Nice outdoor museum of historic villages from all regions of Ukraine.Unfortunately not ready for foreign tourists who do not speak Russian. Operators can not exploit the potential of this museum. Missing printed materials and guides. Otherwise, a very nice and interesting place, stands a very good Ukrainian cuisine.
