Why should you visit Ukraine?

Ukraine is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. But not many people are aware of that, that is why we suggest that you start discovering Ukraine via Kiev. And here are the 5 reasons why.

Kiev is just a minute away from Chernobyl

One of the most obvious reasons why people like visiting Kiev is because it is so close to the now infamous Chernobyl. It is based in an abandoned city Pripyat, but only about 100 miles away from Kiev and once there, it is a great opportunity to experience the disastrous power plant and a ghost-town. Of course, none of the visitors are allowed to touch anything or take anything from there, but other than that it is a completely safe and once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Kiev – the most affordable city in Europe


Kiev is a great city to visit, especially if you are a traveller on a budget. It is one of the cheapest cities in Europe with hotels sometimes being cheaper that Airbnbs a night. In a city with prices like that it is extremely easy to enjoy all the culture that Kiev has to offer. Attractions and museums costs tops 3$ while one can even find opera tickets as cheap as 8$.

A city that is not overcrowded by pesky tourists

Even though it is a huge city, in Kiev you will be able to feel far away from all the noise as it is one of the places that is not overrun by tourists yet. Most places in Europe, US and Asia, especially in the summer are always bursting with people, so holidays do not always feel like an escape that you need. But in Kiev you will be able to relax and mingle more closely with the delightful locals.

When in Kiev – dance your night away


Do not fear that Kiev is a boring city that can only offer fun activities during the day. It has an extremely lively nightlife and the music and dance culture is constantly evolving over there. Most parties in Kiev start at midnight and go on until the noon of next day. You could either dance your night away or enjoy delicious cocktails in a trendy bar.

Fun, inexpensive and stunningly beautiful – that’s a reason to visit Kiev

Experience some of the most stunning landscapes in all of Europe. If the city is too much for you, there are so many great locations near Kiev that will stun you with their beauty. Either those are dense forests, mountain areas, gorgeous lakes and mineral water springs- the choices are endless.
