Ukraine, in the past decades, was a destination that was barely known to outsiders and rarely attracting tourism. Untied from its Soviet past, the country is receiving more and more attention with its colorful architecture, the vast green parks, the vibrant art scene and welcoming people.
The capital of Kiev, founded in the 8th century, is a bustling city with golden domes and baroque and renaissance elements, colorful buildings and delicious cuisine. With rich history and a busy nightlife, the visitors will certainly have a great time. In the west of the country the Carpathian Mountains and the picturesque Lviv will enchant you with its architecture and nearby ski resorts, resembling cities of Western Europe, whereas in the southeast, the historical port city of Odessa never looked better. With thousands of visitors gathering here every summer to enjoy the Black Sea beaches, the famous Potemkin Stairway, the elegant restaurants and some of the best entertainment venues in Eastern Europe.
