The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village Guided Tour

Summers are never long enough to be able to visit all the neat sites across this amazing country.

Here's something that is still on my list of places to visit... and that I hope wil soon migrate to the list of great places I have been to!

The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village is an open-air museum that was built to resemble pioneer settlements in east central Alberta.

Buildings from the surrounding communities have been moved to the Village and restored to various years within the first part of the twentieth century. As well, you can often meet people in historic costumes here who play the roles of the men, women and children who lived at the time.

This site has an awesome virtual tour of the Village that will do quite nicely until you can go there in the flesh and take a real tour! Who knows, we may bump into each there some day. ;-)
