  • It is a large park outside the city. We traveled by car. Bought a ticket at the entrance and just walked. If good weather, Sun and dry, we can say that the day was a success. Of the virtues, a very large territory, so people do not trample on each other. Informative, you can compare the huts from different regions of Ukraine. Many huts still have some supplies. Tables, benches. Weave some towels and kovdry. There is a church there are cafes. The holidays are here, one can hear folk music. In general it is good if the weather is nice. What is the Atrium, so this high-quality cafes with people's kitchen.

  • Leave the territory. There are and where roam and something to look at. First of all nice large space. You can walk there, where "does not reach leg" probably 90% visitors who settle on the first shops and coffeehouses:) And there's cool and quiet.

  • When were all covered with snow. It would seem that there is to do. But no, in its special flavor. Main track prochishhenny, people almost gone, some lodges are open, you can look inside. Range of beauty and space! Open Tavern, tavern, there's a takeaway, so as to warm up issue. Lots of closets, which is very convenient with children. In the center of a large hill with hire liners. May not compare with a visit to the days of fairs and yestivalej, but we still had a great time!
