As a geographical center of Europe, Ukraine has for centuries been a commercial, cultural and gastronomical emporium of the region. Being at the heart of the European history for the last thousand years, Ukraine offers numberless options for tourism: 7 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, 39 museums of national interest and designated significance, 24 Nature Reserves, and 49 national parks, cultural festivals, green and health tourism etc.
Kyiv, one of the oldest cities in Europe and a cradle of Christianity and Slavic civilization in Eastern Europe, is the best starting point to travel around Ukraine. The center of a powerful European state of the 11th century - Kievan Rus, it still has some of the most fascinating attractions dating back to the Medieval ages.
Another place not to be missed is the southern city of Odesa, a.k.a. the "little Paris" or the Pearl of the Black Sea. The unique combination of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea flavors, with Ukrainian, Italian, Jewish, Greek, Turkish and French influences, coupled with lush vineyards and breathtaking seacoast, make it a major summertime destination for visitors both from Ukraine and abroad.
Ukraine’s cultural capital of Ukraine Lviv, which literally translates as the “Lion” city, is also a must-see destination. Located just 80km east of the EU border, the city’s historical center is reminiscent of the European cities of Prague and Krakow.
The Ukrainian Lion city Lviv lies right next to the Carpathian Mountains, a major recreational and skiing region in Western Ukraine, with both natural and cultural places of interest.
Ukraine’s diversity is reflected in its cuisine, famous for its great taste. Each region of the country is famous for its unique culinary traditions. Ukrainian beverages are highly appreciated as well - stimulating 'varenukha', refreshing kvass, and, of course, the well-known 'live’ beer. Borsht, vareniki, home-made sausages, pamushkas, and chicken Kyiv have grown famous across the world long ago, and are now served in the restaurants of many countries. But to discover how they really taste is possible only in Ukraine! And only here you can try the real Ukrainian horilka (vodka) infused with various tastes from fruit to chilli pepper.
Ukraine lives a festive life. Ukrainian and international music, art, and film festivals take place there each year, gathering a broad international audience.
Whatever the goal of your visit is, you can rest assured knowing that a trip around Ukraine will be a real feast for you.
