What To Do In Ukraine

View a Map of Ukraine

Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It lies at the northwest end of the Black Sea, with Russia to the east, Belarus to the north, Poland to the northwest, Slovakia and Hungary to the west, and Romania to the south west and south, with Moldova in between.

Most of the country (the central and eastern portions) was formerly a part of Russian Empire; after the October Revolution and the Civil War, the entire country, known as the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, was a part of the Soviet Union. Ukraine is the second-largest country in Europe, albeit with a slightly declining population.

Respect the fact that Ukraine is an independent nation. You may find that people are sensitive about being grouped as "Russians". The Ukrainians have their own ethnicity, and do not like being seen as Russians. Ukraine is by no means a conservative country with respect to clothing, behaviour, and overcharges you if they can get by with it, getting what you paid for (quality).
