    No idea.....

    somewhere I am defo going to one day though....

    All I know is the people are realy nice..my Grandad was Ukranian and all his friends from home where always lovely and whenever I have worked with Ukranian people they are always nice

    Ukraine is nice, wouln't recommend going out of Kiev, especially Pripyat' area as they say the level of radiation is still high.
    Practical advice: do not change UK pounds to US dollars here (except for the taxi from the airport), you're better off taking GBP and exchanging them to Ukrainian Hryvnyas in any Kiev bank (I believe 1 pound = 10 hryvnyas)
    I've been to Ukraine 9 years ago, still have friends there, lovely country, very nice architecture in Kiev if you are after church buildings etc. Going there on Christmas!!! DRIVING!!! Skying in Carpatian mountains. I know i am mad but my kid is so excited about it (cannot say that about my husband though....)

    Have a nice journey! Remember to keep your valuables safe and do not leave anything precious (i.e. UK passport) in the hotel just to be on the safe side!
