Pyrohiv is located in the southern outskirts of the Kiev city. It is now home to an outdoor Museum of Folk Architecture and Life of Ukraine. Founded in 1969, the museum contains over 300 pieces of folk architecture brought here from all parts of Ukraine and carefully reassembled.
Buildings of small trade, commerce and local administration, and old wooden village churches contain authentic items, which represent the everyday lifestyle of the Ukrainian village and townsfolk. Local volunteers and modern Ukrainian artisans selling their wares dress in old-style clothes and demonstrate the use of authentic everyday items to visitors.
