Dinossauros Alive

Regardless of how old you are, we bet you dream to see a dinosaur. The famous Dinossauros Alive exhibit is now in Kyiv! Great Argentinian paleontologist Sebastian Apesteguia created 24 figures of dinosaurs of a real scale, real colors and textures, that can also move and make appropriate sounds. Could you ever imagine something as cool as that? Don’t waste your time, go grab a ticket here and get to this fantastic Jurassic world.

Literature Kurazh Bazaar

You don’t have to go far from the dinosaurs to find another type of entertainment. This autumn the famous flea market not only moves to a different location but also steps away from clothes and gives room for books. Here you will find plenty of old and new books, audio and paper ones. Also, you’ll be able to attend book presentations, lectures, and readings. The musical part of this event will be dedicated to jazz and the classics. One-third of every ticket price goes to charity: the event aims to collect money for the restoration of the musical school in Zolotonosha that was damaged by the fire. If all the jazz and old books put you on romantic mood, feel free to finish the evening with our Ukrainian Wine Tasting.

WHEN: Sep 8-9

WHERE: VDNH, Akademika Glushkova str., 1
