Tourists from all over the world are mostly interested in the biggest cities of Ukraine, which keep the history and tradition of the whole Slavic nation. It is natural that guests of the country are interested not only what to see, but where to stay there.
As Kiyv is the most ancient city in Ukraine it has more historic relics than any other town. This city was the cradle of the Ukrainian (and, in fact, Slavic on the whole) Christianity the city presents quite a few magnificent churches and cathedrals scattered all across the banks of the country’s central river – the Dnieper River. Kharkiv has once upon a time been the capital Ukraine so its architectural heritage is very interesting too. This town is famous for its central square that happens to be the biggest one in all Europe and it’s also where a unique building – Derzhprom – is situated.
Kamyanets-Podilsky – the Fortress City beginnings are still not completely understood. But the most recent estimates, due to archeological finds, puts its initial construction in the eleventh century. The city fortress sits in loop in the Smotrich River which makes it very easy to defend. It is widely accepted that it was built by the Dacians while engaged in the Roman-Dacian wars.
What attractions might you expect? The city fortress itself is the attraction. The initial structures and those that have been added over the years offer insight into the Ukraine history. The city is home of the Ukraine’s first gymnasium as well as the Pushkin Enlightenment Center. There are also over 200 monuments to see.
Western Ukraine has often been separated from the rest of the territory during the history of the country and its traditional capital – Lviv – really stands aside from all the other big cities. Among the many tourist attractions of Lviv the most interesting undoubtedly are Market Square, Lviv Theatre of Opera and Ballet, Potocki Palace and of course Lviv High Castle. The Eastern Ukraine to the contrary is famous for its coal industry will be receiving foreign visitors in a big extremely fast developing city of Donetsk full of tourist attractions.
Ukrainian short term rentals market had grown rapidly for the last decade along with the tourist industry, allowing for sightseer to choose from a big variety of different types of accommodation the one that fulfills their needs completely. Many luxurious hotels have been opened for the last few years, also such unusual for the European countries apartment rent sector is very popular in Ukraine. For a reasonable price almost any type of inhabitance could be leased: from a two-floor designer suite in Kiev to a simple 1-bedroom loft in suburbs of Kharkov. Private owners, renting companies and of course hotels – all them fighting for tourists attention, but I personally recommend you if going to visit this wonderful country not to spend most of your budget for an accommodation so you can enjoy all the sights properly. It’s always possible to find some rent place to stay, an apartment for example, which would be cozy, warm like a real home, equipped with all necessary appliances, Internet access, etc. Plan your travel root wisely and shall the terrific beauty of Ukraine open to you!
