Architecture

You never know what new day can bring into your life.

Although Kharkiv has an architect who tries to keep all the different buildings in one stile, it is impossible to restrain all the dreamers from fulfilling their dreams.

Kharkiv has not only modern buildings themselves. This unique city is covered with living history. Lots of buildings have plaques with short descriptions on them. And today they are accompanied with QR-codes, so that you may browse all information over your telephone or tablet.

Sumska street and Pushkinska street are the most beautiful streets of Kharkiv. Old buildings nowadays are mixed with some newcomers. This gives you peculiar feeling. This feeling will become your personal impression of Kharkiv.

Constitution Square

Yes, obviously Kharkiv doesn't have any skyscrapers or so, but from the other side you can find a lively city, where students hurry to school, those who work hurry to earn money for life and everyone tries to fulfil their dreams.

This wonderful place not only can guarantee you something that you may read in guide, but also have some unexpected surprises. For example this year during April whole Kharkiv was covered in snow!

Early and late winter in Ukraine

Winter came early in November and lasted untill March. But after a month-long awakening of nature happened something nobody expected. Snow fell in April! All the green trees and flowers were covered in it.

And this was the time when you remember such phrases as "Winter is coming" and when you fell that you are not prepared for winter that long.

Winter is coming

Ukraine is a worth visiting at any time of year. During winter, you may visit Carpathian Mountains. During summer, Ukraine can offer two seas, The Sea of Azov and The Black Sea.

Nature

I live on the river Udy. And every evening, when I'm running, beautiful sunset meets me.

I can talk and show you my photographs of Ukraine for whole day long, but as usual it is better to see something ones than to hear about it hundred times.

Clear sky, green fields and forests at summer, thick snow at winter - these are just pieces of what you will get from your travel to my country. Don't forget to taste our national cuisine with the world famous borsch.

It is better to see something ones than to hear about it hundred times.

A growing country of big changes

Small changes today may have dramatic effect in the future.

We are trying to find our own way of developing. And already today we can see results of our past choices. Some may like it, some may not. As for me, we are moving in right direction. I hope that everything will become even better. And whole world will discover Ukraine as a pearl in an ocean. Let's make it today.

If you are still not sure whether it worth to visit or not, than this video may have a final word on your decision.

Hopefully I expressed at least part of what can you experience during your trip to Ukraine. There are a lot of nature to explore and cities to visit.

Should you face any questions, do not hesitate to ask. I will be glad to answer.

At the end, I would like to hear your opinion.
