Full description
Kievan Rus Park is located in a historic area 30 miles from Kiev. It recreates not only the city’s architecture of the 8th to 13th centuries, but also the atmosphere of that time with the help of costumed shows, authentic entertainment, and regularly-held festivals. Take this unique opportunity to see how people lived in ancient Kiev 1,000 years ago, in all the gates, defensive earthworks, and walls and towers of the city.

Visit the manors and trade shops of Kiev, the prince's palace, the world's only reconstruction of the battle boat, and the ancient sanctuary of the god, Perun, among many more fascinating sites. Try on medieval costumes and knights' armor, ride horses, learn how to throw knives, axes, and spears, and participate in master classes in pottery, blacksmithing, and Slavic calligraphy.

Make sure to check out the myriad fascinating museums within the park: the Historical Costume Museum, where costumes of different epochs are reconstructed, the Museum of Wooden Architecture, where you can learn how buildings in ancient Rus were built, and the Museum of Shipbuilding, where you will discover the secrets of ancient shipbuilding.

Festivals are held on the grounds almost every weekend and on holidays. Participate first-hand in traditional folk festivals. Witness knight battles and competitions in ancient martial arts. Discover the horse theater's exciting performances. Enjoy a guided tour through this magical place, which promises to take you back to a bygone era.
