This tour highlights Kasia’s Deli as the legendary local business, Shokolad as the indulgent local eatery, Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art as the marriage of heritage and artwork, Ukrainian National Museum for community preservation, and Saints Volodymyr & Olha Ukrainian Catholic Church for breathtaking architecture and spirituality.

Get off the Blue Line train at Chicago and walk towards Chicago & Milwaukee. Take the 66 bus towards Austin and get off at Chicago & Oakley.
