    This memorial is very beautiful, the wooden houses, Church, etc. are very well preserved. the Ukrainian culture is embedded in Curitiba and really deserves attention. Very nice place to visit. It's worth it.

    The place is very beautiful and very well maintained. Is not too large. But there's plenty of information about Ukrainians.

    This place is absolutely fantastic! The church is a replica of one in the countryside built by Ukrainian immigrants to Brazil way back when. The building has a very interesting outside detail. Around the entire building, there is a skirt of roofing over benches built into the side walls. I can only imagine what was going on in the mind of the person who included this detail in the original design of the building. It is such a friendly thing to include. I can see people sitting outside safe from the rain and sheltered from the wind, talking and discussing all sort of things after church or even during the service (having fled the long-winded sermon of an enthusiastic preacher). Other structures ate this local include a stage for local traditional Ukrainian dance performances, a lookout tower with bathrooms, a Egg sculpture symbolizing rebirth and a gift shop... all in the built of the same wood and detail except the egg. There is a curious cross in front of the church, as well, of the Christ and a child Christ carved out of it belly. There are trails from these structure back out to the trails and bike paths which wander throughout the rest of the park area. It is a big place and, if you walk it all, it should take a half day. Take a lunch and water. The gift shop has some snacks and drinks.

Where to stay in Curitiba

Wherever you choose to stay in the city, you'll be able to get from place to place on your Curitiba itinerary in a breeze, thanks to the rapid bus transit system. Most higher-end hotels sit in or very close to the city center, especially along the pedestrianized main street of Rua XV de Novembro. Stay here if you want quick access to the best shopping strip in town. You can look slightly out of the center, in the neighborhoods of Batel and Seminário, to mingle with the city's posh crowd. Curitiba's continuing growth in popularity with younger tourists means you can now find any number of budget youth hostels, mainly concentrated in the center and inner suburbs.
