Remaining largely undiscovered at the heart of Eastern Europe, Ukraine is one of the continent’s last genuine travel frontiers. Steeped in colorful tradition in a landscape of ancient charm with echoes of a Communist past, the capital city of Kiev provides a fascinating insight into Cold War life as well as centuries old architecture and culture. The phantasmagorical university building in Chernivtsi, a relic of the country’s antiquated past, is a must for architecture lovers, while cities such as Kamyanets-Podilsky provide breathtaking scenes of a wilder and far less commercial Ukraine. Often overlooked, Ukraine is a real jewel of the Eastern bloc.
