Today I came back home from a traditional Ukrainian fair named Sorochinsky Fair.Six hour trip there and the same amount of time to come back home - exhausting. But it really was worth it 100%!
A huge area crowded by people who sell their crafts and talents, and gawkers ready to lay out big summs of money and bring home something handmade, memorable, and truly Ukrainian.
At once I felt like being a part of history. Sorochinsky Fair takes place since the 19th century.
It never was neither the most remarkable nor the biggest of Ukrainian fairs. It only became well known in Ukraine and abroad thanks to Ukrainian and Russian dramatist and novelist Nikolai Gogol. He wrote about the Fair in several of his novels.
That is actually the Gogol museum and his bust behid me :)
A ridiculous self-picture. Blah...
