Cossack’s Settlement Mamajeva Sloboda

  Dontsia 2      (+380) 44 361 98 48     more than a year ago
In the middle of XVII century French engineer and cartographer Guillaume Le Vasseur de Beauplan said “Ukraina est Terra Cosacorum” (Ukraine is a Land of Cossacs). Almost 400 years after in seven kilometres from the main street of Ukraine’s capital an open-air museum Mamajeva Sloboda Cossacs’ Village has been settled. The Cossack’s Sloboda with its 98 exhibition objects is located on the 9 hectares and represent replicas of historical settlement depicting Ukrainian nature and lifestyle of the old times.
In just few steps from the main gate of the settlement (Tsarina) you feel yourself transferred into the Cossacks epoch of the 17th – 18th centuries. Then after visiting the unique Cossacks three-domed wooden church founded in the name of Intercession of the Holy Virgin you’ll be treated as the most welcome visitor of the estates of a Churchwarden, a Potter, a Blacksmith, a Cossack-dzhura (Cossack armour bearer) and a Fortune-teller. Except just walking around and watching Mamajeva Sloboda offers excursions and folk craft master-classes, horse riding, driving a horse-drawn carriage, firing a salute from Cossack’s cannons, arrangement of genuine Ukrainian weddings and banquets according to old traditions and many more. We also can recommend you to taste historical traditional dishes in their shynok (Ukrainian restaurant).
