To go inside you need to know a password. The face control at the entrance will say to you: "Slava Ukrayini" (it means "Glory to Ukraine!"), and you must answer "Heroyam Slava!" (Glory to the heroes!). So learn how to spell it or wait for trouble :)

In fact, of course nothing bad happens, but a kind of ritual will immediately immerse you into the atmosphere of the unique institution.
