    A country in the midst of political and economic change, Ukraine is at an interesting point in its young life as an independent state. The country struggles with its divided Ukrainian and Russian ethnic split, but this perhaps only makes it a more intriguing place for the traveler. The Eastern part of the country has a more Soviet feel to it while one who is on the elusive quest to find the "real Ukraine" might look for it in the West. From the elegant European-looking cities of Lviv and Chernivtsi, to the religious centers of Kiev and Chernihiv, to the shady boulevards and parks of Odessa, to the bucolic scenery of Podillia and the Carpathian Mountains, to the dramatic coastline of the Crimea. This is all Ukraine. But like nearly any place, the country is best understood through its proud people, and you should make every effort to seek out their conversation and companionship while traveling here in Europe's biggest country.

Description

After the breakup of the Soviet Union, a slew of satellite states gained independence, the largest of which was Ukraine. Today, a slew of Eastern European and Russian tourists have made Ukraine is one of the top ten tourist destinations in the world. Its unique mixture of Orthodox and Soviet-era architecture, picturesque scenery, enchanting ruins and, mostly, the ever-popular Black Sea coast bring ... read more
in over 20 million foreigners every year. The two main cities, Kiev and Odessa, offer countless cultural and architectural marvels. Take the impressive metro through Kiev, where you'll find attractions like monastic caves, lively squares and museums dedicated to rural folk life and Chernobyl. Of course, you'll have to run up the Potemkin Stairs in the port city of Odessa, filming location of the classic film The Battleship Potemkin. Take a week to explore the beautiful Dniester River, majestic Carpathian Mountains, or unwind along the beaches of Crimea. Ukraine also offers unique dishes to the region such as borsch, solianka and varenyky; in general Ukrainian restaurants are quite good. In terms of hotel accommodations, be prepared for somewhat lower service, a legacy of Soviet-era influence.
