As an alumna of a Future Leaders Exchange program, I spent a year in Indiana, USA, with a goal to raise the awareness of Ukraine and teach Americans about the culture of my beautiful country. I had a pleasure of speaking about Ukrainian history, culture and traditions at a local school, church and community centers. Since then, I have given a speech in the U.S. embassy in Kyiv and been showing guests of my city around for 3 years. Besides sharing the love for my country, I organize events and own an e-commerce business.
I am covering the entrance fee for a group of 4 or less.
I have a Chevrolet Aveo car.
The territory of the village is divided into sectors, each representing the folk architecture and life of a specific Ukrainian region, and picturesque hill with several windmills is the centrepiece. The oldest church in Pyrohiv was built in 1742. Commoner's homes, buildings of small trade, commerce and local administration, and old wooden village churches contain authentic items that represent the everyday lifestyle of Ukrainian villagers.
If you think you might wanna have lunch in Pyrohiv, please bring some cash in local currency (Ukrainian hryvnia). They don't take cards. A lunch will cost not more than 15 EUR.
