The Stars of Chumaks - coming soon!

November 22, 2018

Our new project will soon come to all planetariums (in Ukrainian language at the moment).


The show page (in Ukrainian) -


Do you know where the celestial girls can get water? Or how did the Great Wagon appears on the night sky? Or why do the stars fall? - Together we will discover how these questions were answered as we are taken back in time to the endless Ukrainian steppe and the chumaks campfire. _________________________

Chumak (Ukrainian: чумак) is a historic occupation on the territory of modern Ukraine as merchants or traders, primarily known for the trade in salt. The style of living of chumaks set a great mark in Ukrainian folklore, language, and overall culture. In Ukrainian language, Milky Way is called the Chumaks' Way.
