Although our visit to Ukraine didn’t start well, we still believe that Ukraine is a great country that is well worth a visit.

We only visited Odessa and Kiev this time, but we’re already dreaming of a return visit — we want to stroll the streets of Lviv, check out Chernobyl, and perhaps visit friends in Zaporizhia (that well-known metropolis…).

Odessa

Odessa is a beautiful city, compact and full of echoes of former glory. We found the city itself to be the main attraction, and enjoyed spending time in the parks and admiring buildings like the opera house and the flat house. Plus, there’s the mother-in-law bridge, the City Gardens, and the Potemkin steps, among many other landmarks.

Kiev

The main sights of Kiev include the the Friendship Arch, the Mother Motherland monument, Maidan square in the centre of town, Khreshchatyk Street, and a multitude of churches and monasteries. We enjoyed strolling the streets and exploring a cave monastery, but our week there was certainly not long enough.

Odessa

This anchor is the symbol of Odessa and it seems to be everywhere in this city!

We're in London! But so far we've only seen the inside of the airport, the train, and my brother's house, so no London photos yet. Instead, here's one of the market in Odessa.

Kiev

The October Palace looks pretty impressive against the cloudy sky, but I like the Ukrainian flag painted below!

Kiev is so yellow at the moment! I love the autumn colours.

We've caught the funicular twice in Kiev now — beats walking up that hill!

It's our last morning in Kiev! It's sad to say goodbye to Ukraine, but London awaits.
