The Museum of Folk Architecture is located in the
picturesque area of Donetsk Region. The old steppes and roads here
were trampled down by horses of skyths, hozars and Kozak troops.
Near here is the "Donetsk Swiss": Svjatogorsk Cave Monastery and
This is an outdoor museum in the village
Prelessnoye. On its terrain there is a country estate that
represents the traditional countryside architecture of Donetsk area
and the everyday lifestyle of Ukrainian villagers : typical
Ukrainian peasant hut with thatched roof, barn, wind mill. Those
builds as well as household articles, clothing and dishes dating
back to the turn of the XIXth, beginning of the XXth century give
one the impression of a journey back in time.
