Ukraine and Kyiv

Ukraine is a sovereign state in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively. Including Crimea, Ukraine has an area of 603,628 km2 (233,062 sq mi), making it the largest country entirely within Europe and the 46th largest country in the world, and a population of about 44.5 million, making it the 32nd most populous country in the world.

 

Kyiv (or Kiev) is the capital and the largest city of Ukraine, located in the north central part of the Ukraine on the Dnieper River. We recommend visiting such sights as the Mariyinskyi Palace, the Park of Victory, the Kyiv-Pecherskyi Monastery sites, the St.Sofia and Andriyivska churches, the Golden Gates. Museum of the Second World War is one of the most known museums in Kyiv. The Bogdan Khmelnitskyi and the Volodymir the Greate monuments are worth seeing too.
