City Grandmother, Country Grandmother
I have got two grandmothers. One lives in the city. One lives in the country.
My city grandmother lives in a wide street. There is a small yard in front of her house. There are a lot of cars on the roads and the street is noisy. There is a new cinema and a large supermarket in her neighbourhood. There is also a nice museum. My granny is a curator there. She conducts research based on the collections of the museum and shares that research with public and community through exhibitions and publications.
My city grandmother lives in a block of flats. There are three rooms and a kitchen in her flat. There is a balcony and we like to watch the fireworks displays from it. We also like to have a walk in the park and watch a football match on the stadium.
When I visit my city grandmother in the city, she takes me to the Zoo. We sometimes adopt animals there and donate some money to keep them. We also watch films in the cinema and do the shopping in the supermarket. I like to visit her very much.
At the end of every visit, I give my big hugs to my grandma and say, “I like it here! I’ll be happy to come to your place next weekend.”
My country grandmother lives in a narrow street. There is a large gate, an apple tree, and a big yard in front of her house. It is a quiet and nice place. There is a big kitchen garden and an orchard near her house. There is also a market place in her neighbourhood.
My country grandmother lives in a private house. It has got two bedrooms, a living-room, a kitchen and a hall. There is also a small patio leading to the garden. My grandmother grows flowers there.
When I visit my country grandmother, she teaches me to grow vegetables. We go to the forest and gather berries and mushrooms there. We ride our bikes to the river together. We feed the chickens and rabbits on the farm. We don't forget about wild animals either. When winter comes, we bring some hay for deer. We also feed the birds in our garden. I like to visit my granny during my weekends very much.
I really don’t know which place I like more: a city or a village. I like them both.

Around Cities and Villages in Ukraine
Where to go / Why to go / What to do
Myrhorod stands on the banks of the Khorol River. It is one of the most wonderful treasures around Poltava. A lot of tourists visit this town every year. Some of them want to have a good rest and improve their health there. The others come there to admire the nature and visit the famous Sorochyntsi Fair. But all of them learn about the life, history, and traditions of the Ukrainian people.
Myrhorod became famous only in the early twentieth century. Now it is a health resort with the unique mineral water.
What to see / When to come
If you take a walk around my town, you can see many sights. In the centre of the town there is a small pond. People know it as the “Myrhorod Puddle”.
And there is an original sculpture park around it. Myrhorod is the centre of pottery and ceramic art. You can see these unique artworks in the Museum of Pottery.
Not far from Myrhorod there is the village of Velyki Sorochyntsi. It is famous because a well-known Ukrainian writer Nickolai Gogol was born there. Besides it is the place of the famous Sorochyntsi Fair which is held every year in August.
You can buy original souvenirs made by the Ukrainian national craftsmen there.
