Trip to the Ukrainian village
Sep 17, 2015
I went to the Ukrainian village with our class as a class fieldtrip. Seeing this village really made me step back and think. It made me reflect on many things. This village shows you the good and bad times of the ukrainians. It makes you step back in time and you actually get to see some people at work like they did back in the early 1900's. It really brings out the heritage of Ukrainians.
History is brought to life at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village, an open-air museum where costumed role-players recreate the life of early Ukrainian pioneers that settled in east central Alberta from 1892-1930. Step back in time to hear real stories of hardships and triumphs in Canada’s oldest and one-time largest bloc settlement of Ukrainian pioneers.
Explore more than 30 relocated and restored structures including a burdei (sod house), a one-room school, grain elevator, blacksmith shop and three churches of Eastern Byzantine Rite. Special events take visitors of all ages back to east central Alberta’s cultural and agricultural roots. Make your experience complete with authentic Ukrainian food.
