Very nice and silent place in the crowded city. You are filled with the atmosphere of Ukrainian village of XIX century. Provide children's birthday celebration services - with quests, master classes of craftsmen etc. - was cool.

We really enjoyed our time at Mamajeva Sloboda. The weather was beautiful, which helps as it is open air. The layout of the park is attractive and well-maintained. My lively boys were fascinated by the animals, buildings and details of historic life. A MUST see!

You may not find good guide at village. Rather carry your own guide. Can be arranged by tour agency.
