Up until a few weeks ago, many people didn’t even know where Ukraine was on the map. Now, we see it non-stop in most news and social media outlets.
Unfortunately, all the videos and pictures we see are of a war-ridden country in the middle of collapsing, which is why we wanted to take the time and look beyond all the gruesome images to uncover what’s underneath.
Ukraine has a rich history and a one-of-a-kind culture, reflected in a series of historical sites. It has beautiful modern cities and cozy small towns. Not to mention, traditional villages. It offers many natural attractions, including magnificent mountains, canyons, forests, rivers, and lakes.
The national parks in Ukraine are home to many different unique species, some of which you won’t find anywhere else in the world. There’re even seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites in this stunning country!
With that in mind, rather than focus on the rubble that seems to be building up, we went on a hunt to find the most beautiful cities that embody Ukrainian culture. Keep reading to see what we found!
Hint: Number 5 should be on your radar!
