Due to the current political situation between Russia and Ukraine, it is not possible to travel in certain areas of Ukraine at the moment. Also, as flights are not operating between Russia and Ukraine at the moment, we are not currently able to combine these two countries in a trip.

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.
