Odessa

As well as Kyiv, we spent two years living in Odessa, a beach resort and port on the Black Sea coast in the south.

Lviv

Ukraine’s third most popular city to visit is Lviv, in the west. As it used to belong to Poland, it has a very different ‘feel’ than Kyiv and Odessa.

Other cities

If you are coming to Ukraine, don’t just stick to the main three cities! Get off the beaten track a bit and visit places like Kharkiv and Poltava, and visit some of the amazing museums around the country
