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.

My husband Greg and I, must tell you how wonderful our trip to Ukraine was. Because of your wonderful services and personal touches, everything went extremely well.

We had an amazing journey and love your country. Greg's mother was born in Berdyansk, lived in Kharkov and her father was from Poltava. We visited each of those cities as well as Kiev and Mariupol and enjoyed every minute.

The accommodations you recommended were exceptionally nice. We especially loved our apartment in Kiev and Hotel Kievsky in Kharkov. The staff of the hotel could not have been more accommodating and the room itself was clean, comfortable, cozy and convenient. The apartment was just beautiful and had a great location.

We had a couple of glitches in Mariupol at the Spartak with the electricity going out for many hours, the phone never working and of course no hot water which was not unexpected. The one thing we wish they had was an elevator since we had heavy luggage and were on the fifth floor. None of those things, however, were enough to take away our enjoyment of the room or our stay in Mariupol.

We were stunned by how nice the airport in Mariupol was. It was not only lovely but it was efficient and the flight was nicer than most domestic flights in the US as far as service and food were concerned.

All in all, we couldn't have had a more wonderful adventure and YOU were such an integral part of all of that. From the moment we were met at Borispol and given our vouchers and tickets until the time we left, we knew we were in good hands--yours. I even text messaged Irina about a possible concern when we were about to leave (concerning customs) and she responded immediately and accurately.

What can we say but THANK YOU SO MUCH! We plan to return in a few years and have recommended the trip and especially your service to all of our friends in Orlando, Florida, USA. I hope they get the opportunity to travel to Ukraine and to experience your hospitality.

All the Best,

Candy and Greg, USA
