  • If you're going to go there that day. Firstly not close light. And secondly, the extensive area allows all day there hanging out and not all peresmotrish. Plunge into the atmosphere of the ancient Ukrainian village, his style and was. There's an incredibly relaxed and umirotvoritelno. Nature is just a fairy tale! You can see everything well, lie in the Seine, very good images are obtained. Usually many different exhibitions on site to do the same. You can enjoy homemade pickles and even spirits. Still there are the Church of St. Pravskevy-there pray to marry exit and need to sweat this church 3 times around-and you'll marry such a belief. So who should-try!

  • A great place to spend an entire day. Cycling comfortably quickly overcome distance. Need comfortable shoes. Chic complex of old and restored buildings, temples, houses (huts). There are several cafes (often queue); you can bring food and have a picnic; hold fairs and entertainment. Quite convenient by public and private transport. Recommend! Very interesting and atmospheric. During the season a lot of people.
