Dnieper Ukraine

Dnieper Ukraine (Ukrainian: Наддніпрянщина, Naddnipryanshchyna), was the territory of Ukraine in the Russian Empire, roughly corresponding to the current territory of Ukraine, with the exceptions of the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea (made part of Soviet Ukraine in 1954) and Galicia in the west, which was a province of the Austrian Empire. Ukrainians sometimes call it Great Ukraine (Velyka Ukrayina). Historically, this region is tightly entwined with the history of Ukraine and is considered as the heart of the country.

The Museum of Folk Architecture and Way of Life of Central Naddnipryanshchyna is located in Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyi. The open-air museum contains 13 theme museums, 122 examples of national architecture, and over 30,000 historical cultural objects.
