The restoration of the Vyshnevets Palace is a national project

And although a number of external and internal restoration work at the facility was carried out even earlier – at the expense of the National Reserve “Castles of Ternopil Region” and local budgets, large restoration initiatives were delayed due to lack of funds. During 2005-2010 On paper, the Comprehensive State Program for the Conservation and Use of the Palace and Park Complex in the Vishnevets Village, which was not funded at all, was in effect. And only after 2015, when the reserve became one of the winners of the competition and received a grant from the US Embassy to restore the Mirror Hall of the palace, did large-scale work begin. The main ones are performed by master restorers from Kamenetz-Podolsk Restoration OJSC, a contractor that won the tender for the restoration of the Mirror Hall and the restoration of the southern facade of the palace.

Life of mini sculptures

Not one excursion in Uzhgorod omits mini-sculptures that harmoniously fit into the landscape of the city.

Uzhhorod is the smallest regional center in Ukraine. Maybe this was the incentive for the local sculptor Mikhail Kolodko to create and install a series of small sculptures in the city. The author considers them to be effective components of establishing cultural communication between Uzhgorod and Europe.

“Our region is rich in interweaving of cultures that have been built here for centuries. That is what we wanted to convey in sculpture. We did not do this with the help of large, expensive monuments. The miniature is much cheaper, and perhaps more interesting,” said Mikhail. Continue reading

Private museums of Zaporozhye surprise with unique exhibits

MUSEUM OF TECHNOLOGY BOGUSLAYEV

One of the most informative museums in Zaporozhye is the Museum of Technology of Vyacheslav Boguslaev – the hero of Ukraine and the permanent leader of the flagship of domestic engine building – Motor Sich enterprise. The museum opened in October 2012 and, according to reports, has become a place of visit for more than a quarter of a million people for more than five years. And it’s not surprising: the museum’s work is organized in such a way that people who are in love with technology and are completely far from it can usefully spend time on its territory.

From the point of view of the visitor, the Boguslaev Museum of Technology is not one museum, but two. The first occupies a two-story building, in the halls of which themed collections are located. The second is an open-air museum in the square around this building. And if you decide to go to the Boguslaev Museum of Technology with your children, leaving this area will be very, very difficult for you. And not only because a huge amount of the most diverse equipment has been collected here – from tractors to airplanes. But also because all these exhibits are absolutely accessible to visitors: they can be touched, they can be climbed, photographs can be taken outside and inside, as well as jumping, crawling, hanging and jumping, which children are known to do for hours.
