Full description
Located just 4.2 miles (7 kilometers) from Khreschatyk lies an open-air museum, the Cossack Village of Mamajeva Sloboda. Its thematic exhibits are situated on the 9.2-hectare site and represent a full replica of a historical settlement depicting Ukrainian nature, architecture and the way of life.

On this half-day tour to the village you will explore the village and learn more about the Cossack way of life. See the Scythian statue of Mamaj on the top of a mound near the main entrance. Not far from the church, there is a windmill, which is the symbol of peaceful agriculture in Ukraine.

In Mamajeva Sloboda you will see the houses of the Church Warden, of a Cossack armor bearer, a blacksmith’s smithy, and a pottery workshop. Discover where the Fortune Teller lived and visit an apiary and the watermill.

All of the sites are situated over 2 lakes covered with water lilies. The estate consists of various buildings according to their household function, including storehouses, sheds, stables, cellars, barns, and cart-houses.

Wander around this traditional Ukrainian landscape and be enchanted by the Market Place, thrill to the Military Chancellery and see an authentic Cossack Garrison.
