Travelling to Ukraine?

Update in 2022: Given the current world situation, it is of course impossible to visit Ukraine as a tourist at the moment. We have visited the country several times before the Crimean crisis and found it to be a fantastic country with friendly people and exciting sights. We also experienced sun and swimming on the Black Sea.

Right now, this page can serve as a reminder of how beautiful Ukraine can be, and why everything must be done to preserve it.

  1. Have you been to Prypjat at Chernobyl? It's certainly one of the most exciting places we've been to. Looks like what you might imagine the world would look like after a zombie apocalypse. We were there in 2009. Would like to go there again but have to wait until the children become adults as they have an age limit.
