Rivne Things to Do

  • Visit the theatre.

    This is the theatre in Rivne and I was never here my first trip nor my second trip. One reason is that I dont speak the native language Ukranian or Russian. So, it had been very difficult to understand what the actors would say or sing. It had been nice just to enter and see how it looks like inside.
