Why Travel Ukraine?

 

Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldovato the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

 

Once here, you should definitely visit Mystetskyi Arsenal, which was once an abandoned military arsenal building in the middle of the city and now has been transformed into Kiev's premier arts and cultural space. At over 53,000 sq m, it is one of the largest museums in Europe. Next stop at the Carpathian Mountains and go for skiing. Alternatively, you could also explore Kiev's religious heritage at the Caves Monastery or take a macabre guided tour to Chernobyl, which is the scene of the world's worst ever nuclear disaster and doubtless one of the most unique Ukrainian experiences.

 

You could also marvel at the stunning Western Ukrainian town of Kamyanets-Podilsky, a medieval stunner set on a tall rock outcrop or discover Kiev, Lviv—an open-air museum of extraordinary architectural wealth; and relive the world's most famous cinema scene in Odessa, the site of the famous Potemkin Stairway from Sergei Eisenstein's film, Battleship Potemkin.

 

Another interesting things is to join the locals who swim in summer in the Dnieper River in Kiev and climb onto its ice in winter to fish. Or explore the fascinating catacombs of Sevastopol and also visit the St Sofia Cathedral.

 

For shopping lovers, popular souvenirs include paintings, ceramics and jewellery, all of which can be purchased at galleries or direct from artists on the street. Other good and authentically Ukrainian souvenirs include hand painted eggs (pyansky), carved wooden items and matryoshka dolls, which are actually Russian in origin.
