Here you can visit a unique authentic Slavic dwelling of the 10th century, feel the spirit of your ancestors, get to know their way of life, learn about the ancient local history of the region — the Historical and Cultural Reserve “Ancient Plisnesk” has started a new tourist season and invites you to visit.
Why is “Ancient Plisnesk” worth your attention?
Because its history dates back to ancient times: it is known about the existence of settlements of the Tryplian and Vysok cultures on this territory. And later, in the 5th-6th centuries, the Sklavins. From the middle of the 7th century, the ancient Slavs founded a pagan sanctuary here. Archaeological findings indicate that local tribes practiced rituals with human sacrifices. And in the 10th century, Plisnesk stretched over several hundred hectares and was 45 times larger than Kyiv at that time!
Professional tour guides will definitely tell you more about these and other points of interest. And they will offer to visit an authentic Slavic dwelling of the 10th century, which was recreated here by archaeologists last year.
The day and time of the excursion must be agreed in advance.
