  • You really have a feeling like you're walking in a Carpathian village :) very cheap entrance and there are usually barely any tourists :) More on my YouTube channel Lex Universe
  • This place is so beautiful and peaceful, full of Ukrainian culture and history ❤️ At one point I could barely hold my tears because the houses and the objects inside took me way back in time. You can rent a bike to go around since the area is so big, but we chose to walk and it was very nice.
