^^ I like it. What's currently at the lot where the old one was?
That would make sense, as that's where a lot of Ukrainian immigrants in Saskatchewan came from way back in the early 1900s.I like the building too, looks to be in subcarpathian style.
Nope, my camera died right at the beginning... I will have to buy a new battery I think . Doesn't seem to be holding it's charge very well. In any case, the theme this year was the Kozak's. It was pretty good The food was excellent of course, as was the enterntainment. 2 live bands, 2 choirs, 2 professional dance groups. Good stuff There was a big display for the Kozak's and the history as well including pictures and descriptions of some of the Hetman's. My mom's last name is the same as that of 2 Hetmany. ... but I did know that already.ANy photos from Vesna itself?

How much do you catch from our conversations?
Don't be shy - go ahead and ask for translations etc. on any thread you wish - we would hate to exclude you from the forum
Yes, unfortunately most of them use Russian.Haha, I catch very little ... that's why I don't really participate anymore... I come for the pictures and the little snippits of news that are in English... I may understand a few bits of news in Ukrainian... and virtually none of the Russian, which sort of makes it more difficult for me, as, unfortunately, most of the new forumers use Russian and not Ukrainian when conversing.
Схожий на якийсь склад = Looks like some warehouse.However, I am curious about the meaning of "Схожий на якийсь склад". I get the first part of Playmaker's post (That the building doesn't appeal to him)... but I would like to know why the building isn't appealing.
Yes, I agree. The puppet theatre is impressive... However, Kyiv is a city of over 3 million people... This museum is being built in a city of just 225,000 or so. And it's pretty much entirely being funded through donations. They currently have a little over $1 million raised, and over $3 million is needed for the project.Yes, unfortunately most of them use Russian.
Схожий на якийсь склад = Looks like some warehouse.
It's not appealing to me because it has empty walls, it has no details and the towers are inexpressive.
As an example, here is the Puppet Theater in Kyiv. Its new building was built in 2005(!).
It doesn't look like warehouse, it looks like museum to me.
Саскатчевань-как то по армянски звучит,это просто к словуI like the building too, looks to be in subcarpathian style.
Хто не розуміє англійську:
у Саксакутін, Саскатчевані (Канада) будують новий український музей. Це самий український регіон за межами України, більшість імігрували туди під час україенсько-радянської війни початку 20 століття.
Друга фотка відображає попередній будинок який використовував музей. Поруч видна українська церква.
