I was there with a larger group and a tour guide who walked us around. It was very pretty and the views were excellent. Having someone to tell you the history was also a good idea.

I visit the resturant and museum. Museum much better to visit at the summer and not in the winter. Quite cool anyway but I can imagine a lot more activity in the summer. Resturant was very cozy and great food.

There's no public transport access to the museum. You should either use any Right Bank bound bus, get off at the first stop and walk a mile, or walk VI's the Arch Bridge from the Right Bank. The Cossacks Museum is currently... More
