  • One of the best places I've been in my lifetime, a massive range of aviation aircraft from early 20th century and modern day. You can go inside some of the aircraft including the cockpit of some. And it is also a great place for kids to go and have a look and experience it. Only issue I had was the staff who spoke little English but that is expected. A good day out should take around 2-3 hours.
  • Really impressive collection of planes, helicopters and even aircraft engines! Some planes and helicopters can be seen from the inside! They even have some flight simulators you can try on site! And if you finished the long tour (give yourself 1.5 to 2 hrs), you can always do some real life plane watching, as the airport is literally over the fence! All inclusive price: 100 UAH
