Looking for the perfect traditional touch to celebrate the culture-laden Ukrainian holiday season, why not pick up some Petrykivka tree ornaments? Featuring bright colours in distinctive floral designs, these wooden ornaments are among Ukraine’s most recognisable cultural symbols. In fact, Ukraine’s Petrykivka art form is a registered trademark and even recognised by UNESCO.
You’ll be able to choose from different colours, designs, and even ornament shapes. An angel? A bulb? A horse? Or even a Christmas stocking? Just find the one that’s right for your loved one and they’re sure to be in for an unforgettable gift experience.
As a definitive national product, you won’t have any problems finding the ornaments. Check out Kyiv’s famed souvenir market on Andriyivskiy Uzviz, the Folkmart on Khreshchatyk, or just about any Christmas market in Ukraine. Or, if you want a truly Ukrainian experience, head out to the village of Petrykivka near Dnipro and make one for yourself!
Add a bit of traditional Ukrainian charm to everyone’s Christmas tree this holiday season by picking up your own collection of Petrykivka Christmas ornaments!
