Reconstructed Cossack village with a variety of structures and crafts. Also the site of the display of Cossack horsemanship skills. Well worth a visit, especially with the show included. Some quality souvenirs also on sale here.

This is a miniature reconstruction of a traditional Cossack fort and was most interesting to visit. The highlight was a splendid Cossack show both of foot and on horseback. Their riding skills are amazing.
