Formerly part of the Russian Empire and then the Soviet Union, Ukraine offers much to its visitors, including a rich culture and history, vibrant cities, green mountains and warm Black Sea shores. The names of several Ukrainian cities reverberate throughout Eastern European history: Kiev, Lvov, Odessa, Kharkov, Yalta and Balaklava.
If you're a history buff, if you love local folk culture and colour, or if you seek the sun-kissed beaches and resorts of Eastern Europe's Black Sea, you should visit Ukraine.

Straddling the Dnieper River with an ancient majesty, Kiev (Kyiv) is Ukraine's charming capital and largest city.
