If you have an interest in military history or just an interest in peopel make sure you vist this museum. It is a fascinating display of the dark days of WW2 and of the current conflict in Ukraine. Excellent, please go.

The place explains very well the history of Ukrainian people throughout the establishment of the country. Although there are few parts in the museum that are not for children experience.

Seriously, book an English guided tour, it's only 120UAH for almost 2 hours. There's close to no information available in English if you walk around without one. I got a private tour by Taras who knew everything about Ukraine's role in the second world war...More
