Ukraine

Last Updated: 25 December 2017
Ukraine, situated on the South West of the Black Sea, is Europe’s largest country. With over twenty thousand lakes, eleven million hectares of forest and thousands of streams and rivers it has an abundance of natural resources. There are also thousands of miles of mountain slopes offering great ski destinations at a much lower cost than many other ski havens. Ukraine is one of the most affordable destinations in Europe.

The Carpathian Mountains contain parts of the last of the Primeval Beech forest that used to cover Europe. The mountains are full of quaint villages and mountain trails great for hiking or cycling. The lakes and waterways tempt water sports enthusiasts to take to the water.
