  • This is the most magical and beautiful place. Lovely place to walk with family, atmosphere is positive and time flies by unnoticed. This is my favorite vacation spot

  • The museum is about an hour's walk from the underground station IPODROM. You can also take a walk in the park to get there. I would recommend it because it is extended and it is also inspiring to visit it all. I would consider it as something to do in Kiev because it is not a tourist trap, there are buildings dating back to different eras and some of them can be visited from the inside. I recommend to devote at least half a day.
