Shevchenkivskiy Hai - Museum of Natl Architecture
Highlights / General details
Lviv Museum of Folk Architecture and Rural Life (Shevchenkivskiy Hai) is an open-air museum containing 120 monuments of folk architecture including six wooden churches. Hardly any museum in the world can boast so many religious buildings. The open-air museum is located on a 50-hectare land plot in the picturesque part of the city - Shevchenkivsky Hai (Shevchenko Park). Unbelievably beautiful wooden houses and churches of the past ages create a genuine atmosphere of Ukrainian villages from different regions of the country - the lands of Boykos, Lemkos, Hutsuls, as well as Bukovina and the Transcarpathian Region. In dwelling and utility houses you will find items of everyday use and farm implements. The churches, chapels and belfries have an authentic look. Folklore-ethnographic ensembles stage their performances on the museum's territory. It is a fascinating insight into the real life of Ukrainian people in 18-20th century.
