Ukraine: 11 best places to visit; Pavlo Fedykovych; CNN


Ukraine – L’viv – the Ensemble of the Historic Centre

It’s one of the biggest countries in Europe, but even when it isn’t hosting the annual song spectacle that is the Eurovision Song Contest, Ukraine struggles to attract visitors.

Recent political, territorial and economic difficulties have done little to burnish the image of a former Soviet nation struggling to find its identity between Russian and western European influences.
Nevertheless, Ukraine is home to a host of beautiful places with a great range of tourist activities. And while some regions are advised as off-limits due to separatist clashes, most of this vast country is open for business.
Vibrant cities, ancient castles, stunning countryside, diversity of landscapes and a welcoming attitude all help make it a special destination, regardless of its troubles.
The lack of mass tourism lends Ukraine a charm and authenticity often missing elsewhere.
