UKRAINE

Welcome from the Ukranian Community

Welcome to the Ukrainian Pavilion – an exciting display of Ukrainian culture.

Alberta has a long history of Ukrainian settlement. There are over 300,000 Albertans of Ukrainian descent, the largest population of Ukrainian Canadians in Western Canada. Ukrainians are Slavic people and a nation with a unique language, culture, and national history.

While Ukraine has existed since prior to 900 AD, some historians estimate its origins from 6000 years ago. Present Ukraine stems from one of the most powerful countries in the 10th century - Kyivan Rus'. It is the largest European country having its entire territory in Europe. Ukraine is also known for its fertile agricultural land and was nicknamed as the "bread basket of Europe". Nowadays, the culture continues to be passionate, prosperous and flourish more than ever.

Please enjoy the Ukrainian pavilion!
