The park was worthwhile the visit , especially because there was a tournament ongoing. Our guide Konstantin was very helpful and gave good explanation. After the park we visited Mezhyhirya Residence : this is really a must-see . We only had time to visit the house, I have to admit :we were very impressed. Thanks Konstantin for the tip!
