Situated in Kopachiv village in Kyiv Oblast lies a phenomenal historical park that represents the cultural centre of Kievan Rus’, also known as Kyivan Rus Park, the park will definitely satisfy your taste for Ukrainian culture and history.

Something that is considered the biggest value and characteristic of this phenomenal piece of land is its uniqueness. No other facility or tourist attraction that offers similar content that can be found in the entire region. It’s a one of a kind place that unites medieval European and Rus’ culture and that is what many locals and foreign tourists appreciate about this place.

The idea of creating such an interesting playground originated from the charitable organization called “Slavic fund”. The original intention was related to reconstructing the “Kyiv Detinets”, a fortified ancient Rus’ city from the 5th to 13th century and this organization was fully aware of how creating a cultural centre like this will have a big impact on the people. Covered with authenticity, architectural characteristics, and recreation of Kievan Rus’ atmosphere, this place is an iconic site to visit. Due to both the Rus’ and medieval European connotations, a lot of different warriors and knights are found here.
