Visiting Shevchenko Grove Apr 12, 2017
We decided to pay a visit to Folk Architecture Museum that we had seen on the city map after our excursion to Lychakiv Cemetery that was not far from it.

Since we did not have much time at our disposal, we took two taxis for our company of six persons and arrived to the museum site in no time.

Austrian Emperor Joseph II visited this grove one day. People began to call it Kaiserwald (“Emperor’s Forest”) afterwards.

This open air museum contains several ethnographic departments:

- the Boykos Land;

- the Lemkos Land;

- the Hutsuls Land;

- Podillia (“Lowlands”);

- Polissia (“Forest Land”).

A lot of old churches and houses from those areas were brought to that grove as museum exhibits.

The first one was a wooden church that was brought to the grove by the order of Metropolitan Andriy Sheptytsky in 1763.

Now you can see private houses with their interior and auxiliary household elements.

In addition, there is a small menagerie with goats and poneys at the territory of the museum.

This grove is popular on Easter holidays when young people’s festivals are held here.

The address is: 1 Chernecha Hora (“Monks’ Mountain”).

The museum is open from 10 a.m. till 7 p.m.

You can get there by streetcar #2 and #7.
