Get into ukrainian mud hut

#22 of 26 things to do in Kiev
Architectural works of the Ukrainian village of the 17th century now almost never met. In order to pop into the dwelling in Western Ukraine, Bukovina, Polesie and other regions, visit the National Park of Ukrainian Architecture and Life «Pirogovo».

On a large territory of green meadows and wheat fields you can see wooden churches built without a single nail, wooden mills, as well as ukrainian mud hut «Khata-Mazanka» - the traditional Ukrainian dwelling made of clay and straw and decorated with wall paintings and embroidered towels inside.
