Holiday in Ukraine

 

Rivne Amber Museum

There are two deposits of amber in Ukraine and one of them is located in the Rivne region, therefor is no surprise that the country’s first – and for now the only – museum devoted to this amazing stone, was opened there.

The Rivne Amber museum was opened in 2010, using the facilities of the amber factory – the only enterprise in Ukraine that processes amber. It introduces the history of this sunny stone’s extraction in the region and features a collection of the most striking amber items that was made from in the factory and from private collections.

Jewelry and tableware, ceramics and stained-glass windows, pictures, as well as clothes and footwear decorated with amber are exhibited in museum’.

There are some truly unique exhibits in the Rivne Amber museum: for example, the Museums pride is the amber amulet disc that was made over 2,5 thousand years ago. It is the oldest amber item in Ukraine, which indicates that our ancestors knew how to process the sunny stone and make from them.

 Working hours: from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., closed on Saturday and Sunday

Address - S. Petlury St. 17
