Kievan Rus Park

Kievan Rus Park
Operation: year round
Location: Kopachiv village, Kyiv
Included in the following tours:
 
The Kievan Rus Park is a unique amusement park. Only in 45 minutes ride from Kiev in Kopachiv village, a brilliant idea of replicating ancient town of Kiev of the 5th-13th centuries is in the process of realization. There will be recreated Detinets-Kremlin of Kiev in the true extent on 10 hectares of land, with all known nowadays architectural details of the capital in the Kievan Rus times. While fortifications of earth walls and moat, palisade, gates with 3-storeyed wooden towers, tournament field, grandstand, watchtowers and timbered manors of Kievans are already available for sightseeing, the park has something else special to offer. These are a theatre with professional actors, equestrian theatre and workshops of various traditional Slavic crafts, such as pottery, thread-doll making, pysanka painting, weaving, carving, blacksmithing, etc. Thus, the park is not just a monumental reconstruction of the core of the Kievan Rus capital but a living image with fairs and streets inhabited by colourfully dressed townsfolk, knights, riders and tradesmen. Interactive theatrical performance, equestrian show, horse riding and pottery or thread-doll making workshop is just a short list of activities offered here. Visiting on Slavic holidays be prepared to witness vivid Slavic festivals, ceremonies, games and rites, or even take part in activity of your choice.

I am now back home in Sweden, since 4 days, after a really great week in Odessa. I must have walked between 100-200 km in that city and worn out 2 pair of shoes during that time. And it was with mixed feelings I entered the airflight back home.

I also like to thank You again, Irina, for the great apartment and service You and your office provide, and You can be sure that I have promoted Odessa and your office a lot, among my friends, since I came home - the pictures I took of the city has really impressed them :-)

Odessa might be a worn down city (on its way up), and I understand if many people have a hard time dealing with all the chances in the society, but Odessa really did put its mark on me.

Best Regards,

Ralf, Sweden
