My friend and I visited last Sunday - it had been snowing every second of that entire weekend. We arrived just as they were opening and had to wait a few minutes for the cashier. It's a really lovely place to stroll around. The reason...More

A varied collection of old wooden buildings from the region, re-erected in a pleasant wooded site. We took the tram from the centre of Lviv (the Tourist Information Office was helpful in this). When we got off at the designated stop a helpful lady also...More

Lots of village homes, stores, farms, & churches. Most of country's history is better represented by these reassembled & replica places than typical tourist architecture. The map shows 2 food places-- but both were closed & looked like they haven't opened for years. Outside main...More
