RUTA Ukrainian restaurant
“Ruta” is not just a beautifully sounding word, it’s also a wonderful flower from ancient Ukrainian myths and legends.
As the legend of “Red Ruta” was retold many times, everyone wondered whether this flower really exists 🥀
Maybe one day we’ll find an answer to this question, but now we’d like to tell you the famous legend of why Ukrainians are looking for “Red Ruta” every year at the beginning of July.
The legends and tales of the Carpathians tell that the real “Red Ruta” is a yellow flower, and only on a magical night of Ivana Kupala it turns flaming red for just a few minutes. The legend also says that the lucky one who finds the flower and plucks it during those few minutes will find true love.
We hope our “Ruta” becomes your true love 🇺🇦
