Although I lived for almost 10 years in the U.S., I am originally from Ukraine. There, I spent a lot of time growing up, going to school, working and traveling all over this country. I mainly lived in Kyiv, Lviv, and Khmelnytskyi but traveled extensively to every region of Ukraine, including the seaside, Crimea, the Carpathian Mountains, North, and East.

Since 2017, after becoming a digital nomad, I decided to return to Europe, make a base in my home country, rediscover its beauty and start this Ukraine travel blog.

What You’ll Find Here

In this section, you will find lots of articles and guides to all regions of Ukraine that I know very well. I’ll show you the most popular destinations along with the most hidden gems.

My travel blog is aimed not only to inspire you to visit Ukraine. It will give you practical tips on where to go and what to avoid, how to move to Ukraine as a foreigner, what life in Ukraine is all about, how to travel, where to eat, what to see and do in Ukraine. Either you are visiting for a weekend or a month.

If you are planning a trip to Ukraine and can’t find an answer to a specific question here, feel free to contact me directly. I am happy to answer all of your questions. Also, for a small fee, I can create a unique itinerary, connect you with the right people or even be your personal travel guide and interpreter.

Ukraine is more than Chernobyl, Lviv, Kyiv or Odesa. It is not only about dating and war with Russia. Allow me to help you understand Ukraine and see it in a new light.
