Ukrainian Village Tour


The Ukrainian Village skansen is located in a picturesque coniferous forest half an hour’s 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 houses and buildings, and touch the exhibits.

Moreover, you will see the work of potters, blacksmiths and even feel yourself a Ukrainian craftsman by participating in one of the master classes.

Besides, there is a mini zoo with domestic and wild animals, an outdoor recreation area and a national cuisine restaurant in the museum.

We did the beer tour in Kiev. Five beers in five different bars for two of us and our guide. That was a great chance to hang out with some locals, get to know the history and city a bit more, all while enjoying some of the unique local beers you can only find in Kiev. Our guide was very knowledgeable and great company and we had a fantastic evening! Highly recommended!

Highly recommend taking a tour with Wonders & Holidays. I learned so much about Ukrainian history that I wouldn't have on my own and the tour guides feel like friends (rather than just guides). I went on the Kiev in 180 minutes sightseeing tour with Igor and it was such a great experience. He was an excellent guide not only did he explain the history so well, but also answered any related or unrelated questions about Kiev and Ukraine. Both Igor and our driver Gestutas were so personable, accommodating, kind and professional - I hope I get the chance to go back again to take another tour with them.
