Photo and description
Museum of Folk Architecture " Pirogovo " located on one hundred and fifty hectares of land, located less than an hour's drive from Kiev. The museum was created between 1969 and 1976 - that is how much time it took to collect in one place in the open air more than three hundred exhibits brought from all over Ukraine.
When creating the museum, its creators tried to adhere to the territorial -temporal principle. Walking around the territory of the museum, its visitors can learn what the life of the Ukrainians of Poltava region, Transcarpathia, Polesie, Podillya, Slobozhanshchina and Southern Ukraine was like in the period between the 16th century and the present. All the exhibits of the museum, and these are ancient huts-huts, wooden churches and mills, have been carefully restored. In fact, every house in Pirogovo is a miniature museum, since the atmosphere and environment in which the Ukrainian peasants lived are accurately reproduced there. This is not surprising, since while creating the exposition, historians tried to adhere to documentary evidence as much as possible.
Most of the Pirogovo Museum of Folk Architecture is occupied by fields, and annually they are sown with those agricultural crops that Ukrainians used to sow the land in ancient times. It is especially beautiful here in spring, when fruit trees begin to bloom. One gets the impression that their owners are about to leave the houses and go about their business.
The unique features of the area allowed the creators of the museum to create with the greatest reliability the settlements characteristic of both the steppe south and the mountainous Carpathians. So, exhibits,
