Mundare

The small town of Mundare is located in central Alberta, Canada, about 70 km east of Edmonton and 24 km west of Vegreville, at the intersection between Highway 15 and the Yellowhead Highway. The Canadian National Railway tracks run through the town. Beaverhill Lake lies southwest of the town, and Elk Island National Park is located 30 km west of Mundare.

Tourist attractions in Mundare include the Basilian Father's Museum that presents the history of the Ukrainian settlement and Basilian Fathers Mission in east-central Alberta. It holds a unique collection of 16th and 17th century liturgical books from Ukraine. The museum is off of the highway 45 that borders the eastern part of town and is across from the "Grotto" called the "Golgotha of Mundare", an elegant garden and shrine that was built by the Basilian Fathers in 1934.
