Urban Dictionary defines ‘extra’ this way: “over the top, excessive, dramatic behavior, doing the absolute most.”
Extra. The word rattled around my brain throughout my time in Kiev.
With such a rich, fascinating history, this capital city of Ukraine has had hundreds of years to do the absolute most at every turn: their churches are the most ornate, their parks are the most artful, and their fashion is distinct, chic, and affordable.
The streets are filled with these ultra (some might say… “extra”) fashionable people. In short, Kiev is extra AF in the best way.
Eager for Tourism
All of Ukraine is open and eager for tourism now, but Kiev has the biggest airport and, therefore, the largest international presence.
That said, avoid Ukraine Air if possible. If Kiev does the most, this airline truly does the least.
