History is brought to life at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village, an open-air museum depicting early settlement in east central Alberta from 1892-1930.
We will start our Ukrainian experience with authentic Ukrainian food.
We then have a guided tour to explore more than 35 restored historic buildings, including a new two-room school, three Eastern Byzantine Rite churches, a blacksmith shop, working grain elevator, farmsteads, a sod house and more. The tour guides will give some practical gardening advice, visit with a shopkeeper organizing his wares, stop by a pioneer kitchen for tips on baking bread, and get points from the blacksmith on the best way to shoe your horse, or observe how a grain elevator works.
Immerse yourself in this vital part of Alberta’s history.
Walking shoes and sun screen are recommended. Please note the bus trip to the Ukrainian Village is nearly 4 hours each way. We plan to leave at 8 am and return shortly after 8 pm. It will be a long day. But a fun day.
