The complex is several hectares and there is a lot to see. It is possible to rent a golf kart. Extra entry is due for the main accommodation, which is due to the fact that the entire complex is financed only by the tourist entrance fees due to the unclear status after the escape of the host during the revolution. The tours in the residence are carried out by 2 local activists (mutually). You get a very good insight into the situation of the local people today as well as of the Ukraine in general (assuming appropriate language skills). A committed guide (as in my case) who can speak German very well, translates and can answer all open questions. When ordering the tour from GYG or Agrotours ask for Ludmilla. Transfer took place by car as the facility is located about 15 km north of Kiev.
