Les Kurbas Theatre is definitely not for everyone. But if you are looking far beyond the borders that is the place to go and experience what is hidden behind.

I've been there more than 10 times and I always try to follow their new performances. Enthusiastic professional players, charming atmosphere and cheap prices. There are no english speaking performances but you can still visit some to be charmed by old ukrainian songs!

If you are a tourist who doesn't speak Ukrainian I would advise you to attend their "Lisova Pisnia" ("Forest Song") performance,... More
