Opened in 2008, the Etnomir educational, cultural, and tourist center is a unique project: a miniature copy of our diverse planet is recreated on 90 hectares. In the long term, the project will include 52 ethnic palaces, each representing the culture of one nation and including harmoniously placed ethnic buildings: an ethnic hotel, workshops, a museum, a restaurant of national cuisines, a souvenir shop, and other buildings that reflect traditional living.
In each ethnic palace, there will be a guardian of tradition, who will introduce the invaluable culture of their nation through everyday life and festive traditions, including crafts, folklore, architecture, history, national cuisine, and traditional medicines.
Ethnologists from various countries are participating in the creation of the ethno-palaces. The main principle of Etnomir is the equality of cultures despite the level of their economic development or the status of their country in the world. The project will be completed by 2020.
Apart from sightseeing tours, workshops and games prepared by every ethnic palace, visitors to Etnomir can enjoy sport and exercise areas, climbing walls, adventure park, rides on four-wheelers, Segways, golf carts, dog sleds, and many other things. Etnomir offers special programs for workdays and weekends, as well as festivals and national holiday programs.
