How to see Ukraine in miniature in Kiev
Earlier in this small open-air museum you could see only Kiev and its most famous places and buildings: Saint Sophia's Cathedral, Lavra, Khreshchatyk, Andrews Descent and many other Kiev sights. Over time, the museum grew and now all the most famous and beautiful buildings and places of Ukraine or, more precisely, their miniature copies are gathered here.

In total there are about 50 expositions in the park, their number is constantly increasing, and the "population" of "small Kiev" is about 700 people.

How to do?

1. Go to Hydropark, the most convenient way to get here by subway to the station with the same name on the red line.
2. Exit towards the Venice Bridge, just before the bridge, turn right and go down the steps, then walk straight about 200 meters towards the restaurant "Windmill" (Brovarsky prospect 9B).
3. Buy a ticket right at the entrance.
4. Look at the miniature copies of all the architectural monuments of Ukraine made by hands of real wizards.
