Foggy Day at the Museum of Folk Architecture of Ukraine

Pyrohiv is a historical territory located on the southern outskirts of Kyiv named after the village of the same name, which has existed here since at least the 17th century.

This place is known primarily for its excellent open-air museum, which is an architectural and landscape complex of all historical and ethnographic regions of Ukraine – the National Museum of Folk Architecture and Life of Ukraine. Pyrohiv on Google Maps. Photos by: Yuri Yuriev.
