Ukraine, the largest country in Europe, has a vivid history and rich culture. Sitting at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, it is a patchwork of traditions. And despite its architectural, cultural and natural brilliance, it is largely unexplored, making it an ideal destination for travellers seeking authentic experiences. Its cities house quaint plazas, Soviet-era buildings, World War-era Jewish neighbourhoods, modern high-rises, Crimean Tatar cafes and traditional restaurants serving home-cooked food.
For outdoor lovers, there are the mighty Carpathian Mountains in the west, the Black Sea in the south and the Danube and Dnipro rivers in between. You can go hiking, camping and mountain biking in the Carpathian or head to the Black Sea for beach parties and water sports. The Danube and Dnipro Rivers provide prime opportunities for wildlife spotting, and Ukraine's countryside will introduce you to a culture and lifestyle little known even to most Ukrainians. Travelling in Ukraine will give you unmatched experiences.
Ukraine recently announced a tourist visa on arrival (single entry) for Indian citizens, making it the first European country to do so. Ukraine tourist visa on arrival can be obtained at Boryspil, Kyiv and Odesa International Airports for ₹6,100 (2550 Ukrainian Hryvnia) and is valid for 15 days.
