Reasons to Visit Ukraine

  • Beach relaxation

    The beautiful Crimean coastline, rich in history, is also great for a relaxing beach break at the end of a busy trip. The area is also well known for it's beautiful national parks so if you do tire of sitting on a beach, there are ample opportunities to head out and explore some lovely countryside.

  • Cathedrals & churches

    Ukraine’s onion domed churches and monasteries are the precursors of Russia’s and stretch even further back into history.

  • City life

    Kiev, Odessa and Lviv offer three contrasting urban styles – Kiev having a mixture of ancient churches and imposing Stalinist architecture, Lviv having a style deriving from its roots as a city of the Austro-Hungarian empire, whilst Odessa, built in the 18th century has a grand, faded imperial style.

  • Modern history

    Ukraine has played host to some of recent history’s most pivotal events – from the WW2 Yalta conference between Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt, to the tragic Chernobyl accident, the attempted coup against Gorbachev during the Perestroika years to the more recent ‘Orange’ revolution.

  • Train journeys

    Being Europe's largest country, Ukraine is criss-crossed by a busy train network and offers great opportunities for scenic rail journeys. Overnight accommodation is simple but there is always a convivial atmosphere on board offering the opportunity to meet local people and share food, stories and the odd vodka!

Travel in the Ukraine is possible all year round; however the best times to go are spring, when the blossoms are on the trees, and autumn, when the weather is most clement.

In summer it can be very hot on the Black Sea coast, and busy with Russians and Ukrainians relaxing by the sea. Winter is obviously cold but the domes and spires of Kiev in particular look fabulous under a layer of snow.
