Visit Ukraine

When most people visit Ukraine, they breeze in and out of Kiev in four or five days. Maybe they’ll skip over to Lviv if they have time or are en route to Poland. But as Europe’s largest country, there’s so much to see and do (and eat) here! I have treasured the time I’ve had to explore this vast, complex, stunning country, and now I want to help other travelers discover one of Europe’s last hidden gems.

You can find a dazzling speakeasy scene in Kiev or go horseback riding in the Carpathian mountains. You can slip back in time at medieval castles or party the night away on Odessa’s Black Sea beaches. Even after living here for a year, I will have barely scratched the surface of all Ukraine has to offer.

Want to visit Ukraine but don’t know how to start? This page has links to every single article I’ve written about the country, including links to articles off the blog. It’s a work in progress, but it’s growing into a comprehensive guide for planning a Ukraine trip — and if you don’t find what you need, please feel free to ask!
