Aficionados of unusual cars are all abuzz about the last days of September this year, when one of the biggest tech fests takes place in Ukraine’s capital. At this 9th OldCarLand exhibition, hundreds of unique automobiles of all ages will come together from every corner of the country. The oldest car at the festival will be more than 80 years old, others were only made for a very short time, so many of them are the only examples of the particular model still around. Little guests to this festival of cars can join a race on kids’ sized pedal cars and many master classes.

Andriy Kuzmenko, front man of the Skriabin band, would have been 50 years old. And although Kuzma is no longer with us, Ukraine celebrates the birthday of its beloved musician. The band’s songs have long been national hits and will be performed by more than 20 well-known artists. “Kuzma lives in his songs and his fellow musicians decided to make this a birthday gift to his memory: a major concert in Lviv,” say the organizers. “Kuzma would definitely have been celebrating here with us.”
