  • One of the favorite places! Beautiful at any time of the year. Especially love the back to ride in an unpopular time (winter, autumn, rain), then you can enjoy without being disturbed by something real, soulful that greets every guest is still at the entrance to the Museum and does not leave before boarding the last bus in the evening in Kiev. Cons: there is nowhere to eat. There should not be a provision, actually, but the habit of eating habit and the stomach does not sleep. There were a few stalls and stalls of food typical of.

  • The best place for diving in the historical past of Ukraine! Beautiful scenery and a unique atmosphere, which transports you into a world of Shevchenko. Recommend to visit with the whole family to get acquainted with the way of life in which our ancestors lived.
