    Taras Shevchenko is a legendary personality renowned far beyond Ukraine. His role in the Ukrainian and world literature is more than substantial. His world-famous poetry collection called “Kobzar” is one of his most popular works that was translated to more than a hundred of foreign languages. In addition, over a thousand of monuments worldwide are devoted to a legendary Ukrainian poet.

    Among numerous museums of T. Shevchenko, the one in Kaniv is exceptional, as it is one of the eldest Ukrainian museums. Moreover, it is the exact place where the famed poet was buried in accordance with his own will. You will visit the poet’s burial place on the Tarasova Mountain, overlooking a marvelous Dnipro River. The T. Shevchenko’s Memorial Museum established in 1937 and renewed in 2010 is located not far from it. The museum’s collection includes a big number of exclusive exhibits and unique early copies of T. Shevchenko poems, audio and photo materials.

    The traditional museum Tarasova Svitlitsa is another place of interest dedicated to the great poet that was built in far 1884. This is a great example of traditional Ukrainian hut, decorated with rare icons, Ukrainian embroidered towels, headdresses and T. Shevchenko’s portraits.

    You will have a pleasant walk through quiet and cozy area of the Reserve, admiring the wonderful panorama of the Dnipro River. After the tour, you will have free time in the city, where you may have lunch (optional, own expense). Then, you will return to Kyiv, where the driver takes you directly to your hotel.
