In July 2018 we sent three of our favorite bloggers on a journey of discovery in Ukraine, along with our in-house photographer and videographer, Petra. If all you’ve heard of this massive country is about the troubles in the far east, it might come as a surprise to learn that it’s one of the friendliest places to travel to in Europe. Tourism is still welcomed, not feared, and there’s a huge diversity in things to do. Our group spent four nights each in Kiev and Lviv, taking day trips to places like Chernobyl, learning all about Ukrainian cuisine, liquor, coffee and chocolate during their action packed stay. This post will be updated as new articles are published.
