Christmas and New Year Decorations Factory near Kyiv

Overall rating:

There is a private factory of Christmas and New Year tree decorations in the Klavdiyevo village (Kyiv suburb). Many travel agencies have this destination in their program. We were there in 2006, and the impressions were mostly positive. Homely and friendly atmosphere, interesting story with a demonstration of the manufacturing process and inexpensive opportunity to buy very nice handmade products. The drawbacks are too "Soviet" working conditions and lack of heating. But it is virtually the only job that allows the village people to make a living. Learn more about this factory in the Kyiv Post article (2010).

I am not sure that people there speak English, that's why you need to go with a guide.

The work of a glassblower is very hard. Factory workers retire at 45, and one year of work experience counts for three. Glassmakers are banned from alcohol since it can enter into reaction with the glass particles attached to the decoration and produce unnecessary color shades. Perhaps that's why only ladies work here :)
