Bread Basket of Europe
As the largest country entirely within Europe, it comes as no surprise that Ukraine is a hugely diverse nation. Despite its varied and vibrant tourist attractions, it is a relatively under-visited part of the world. This is mostly good news for those who do decide to vacation here because they can enjoy an authentic and unusual experience. Sip coffee in city cafes, hike the Carpathians, unwind by the beach, and explore picturesque forests. Those interested in architecture will be delighted by the massive array on offer, including grand Gothic towers, wooden churches, and looming Stalinist constructions.
