Full description
The Ukrainian Village of Skansen is located in a picturesque coniferous forest, a half-hour drive from Kyiv. It is a modern museum, representing historical Ukrainian village culture and life on a compact territory. Unlike the Pirogovo Museum, you won’t have to walk a lot; you can also enter all the houses and buildings and touch the exhibits.

Whilst here you will also see the work of potters, blacksmiths and even feel yourself as a Ukrainian craftsman by participating in one of the master classes. There is also a mini zoo with domestic and wild animals, an outdoor recreation area, and a national cuisine restaurant available in the museum.

There are rural houses from the main historical regions of Ukraine in the museum, from regions such as Gutsulshchina (the Carpathians), Southern Ukraine, Podolye (southwestern part), Polesye (northern), Slobozhanshchina (eastern), and Middle Naddnepryanshchina (center). Various interiors and a huge collection of authentic items from each region are gathered in the museum, and during the tour, you will learn a lot about the life of Ukrainian villages.

After an interesting excursion and entertainment, you can dine at the restaurant-kolyba which serves delicious dishes of national cuisine, including borsch with pampushkas, chumak kulesh cooked at the stake, banosh with bryndza cheese, deruny, and vareniki.
