Museum of Hetmanship
The Hetmanship Museum is devoted to the history of the Ukrainian Cossack statehood from the 17th to the 18th centuries, as well as the Ukrainian liberation struggle in the period from 1917 to 1921. The building where the museum is located was built during the time of Hetman Ivan Mazepa at the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries.
