Ukraine's flag Flag of Ukraine
Vast and mysterious, Ukraine is not popular to most outsiders in spite of being among the largest nations in Europe. Long affiliated with its neighbour Russia, Ukraine is a country that boasts stunning landscapes and cultural diversity. The Carpathian Mountains dominates the west of this nation, while the plains covered with sunflowers and cereals are a large part of the central and eastern regions. The south resembles the Mediterranean with the Black Sea and Crimean Peninsula, both of which draws in tourists every summer.
The country's capital, Kiev, feature a exciting mix of architecture worthy of a city that was once the capital of Kievan Rus, the predecessor of the modern Russian state. A wealth of Renaissance and Baroque structures can be found in Lviv, among the oldest cities in Europe. Meanwhile, Odessa is known for the Potemkin Stairway, which was featured in the epic film by Sergei Eisenstein, The Battlestein Potemkin.
