Do you know how to greet each other in a proper way? Here is a good opportunity to learn the way our ancestors were doing it.

Traditional Ukrainian greeting ceremony, a complicated ritual that consists of certain gestures, facial expression and  verbal part will be revived in a series of master classes at Mamayeva Sloboda, an outdoor theme park, just a short drive from the city center on Sept. 15. Apart from that, the folk ensembles will be entertaining visitors with ethnic performances and traditional Cossack festivities will take place in the park.
