Travel tips and resources for travellers: Travel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Ukraine

Hello and welcome to our Ukraine travel blog. You will find all our Ukraine blog posts in this section of our website.

Maybe you found our Ukraine travel blog because you are considering a visiting Ukraine, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to Ukraine. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Ukraine.

Even though our first trip to Ukraine was in 2015, it is a country that keeps calling us back, and we have visited many times since. Although we continue to revisit Kyiv (it’s one of our all-time favourite cities), each time we visit Ukraine, we also explore new areas of the country and, to date, we have been to 30 towns and cities in Ukraine.

Our Ukraine blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
