In the center of Sloboda stands the wooden church of the Cover of the Blessed Virgin Mary, similar to the one that stood at ZaporozhskayaSech in the times of BogdanZinoviy Khmelnitsky.

By the time New Year holidays start, the residence of St. Nicholas also begins to operate – a real holiday for children and adults.

Excursion along the Andreevsky Descent (at additional fee).

Souvenirs, churches, roads, made of of ancient paving stones and hundreds of tourists. A place that is familiar to many of us from the film “After Two Hares”, a street of contrasts. But, did you know about the mystery that is raging around this street? Andreevsky descent at all times was not only the center of capital’s bohemian life, but also the mystical birthplace of many Kiev’s myths and legends. Especially beautiful it is in winter!

And after the excursion is over – the food tasting “Ukraine hospitable” awaits us. Such a dinner will be remembered for a long time! The sound of Ukrainian music and the glasses, clinking to the famous Ukrainian toast, that sounds like “Budmo !!Hey !!Hey !!Hey !!. All This will make your celebration even more unforgettable! (at additional fee).

Here, interesting and fun activities for children and adults are perfectly combined. It is planned to install a huge ice rink and 12-meter ice hills, open Grandfather Frost’s residence, build a New Year’s fair, fast food zones, children’s zones with animators.

The restaurant is located in the gloomy casemates of the Bernardine monastery in the center of Lviv.

The waitresses are wearing costumes of that time to enforce the impression about the place even more.
