About the Travel Guide
Ukraine. People hear it and generally, if they’ve never visited, their mind immediately thinks of harsh winters and dreary landscapes. However, those who have traveled here soon discover a secret magnificence that somehow has eluded much of the outside world. From ski-towns nestled into the Carpathians in the West and beaches framed by lush hills and the clear waters of the Black Sea in the South; to the cobblestoned and cafe-lined streets of Lviv over to the thriving metropolis that is Kyiv: Ukraine’s diversity is astounding.
Not for the subdued traveler, Ukraine challenges it’s visitors with experiences that make even the most competent of backpackers go “oh my god I’m in a foreign country.” It’s that rarely felt, in today’s modern-world, realization that makes adventure seekers fall in love with Ukraine. Bordering Russia, Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary and Moldova, Ukraine is the perfect spot for border-crossing addicts. Western visitors are still a rare site here so get ready endless amounts of homemade Horilka and start practicing your Ukrainian toasts. Ukrainians will welcome you with open arms and a full shot glass. Bud’mo! Welcome to Ukraine.
