Ukraine's abundant mix of popular and off-the-beaten-track experiences make it an ideal destination for the curious traveller. In the capital Kiev, visit Kiev Pechersk Lavra, a historic monastery that sits atop a hill with beautiful views of Dnipro River. What makes this site intriguing is the complex network of corridors and caves that lie beneath the monastery's grounds. Also in Kiev, is the quirky Kyiv in Miniature. This park features a collection of Kiev's most well-known monuments recreated in miniature size and is a great place to preview these landmarks before seeing their life-size versions. For a truly cultural experience, head to Lviv. The city's beautiful buildings reflect a harmonious mix of eastern and western European architectural styles. Some of the most popular attractions in Lviv include Ploscha Rynok or "Market Square" with its historic statues, beautiful fountains and cafes. Spend the day enjoying a cup of coffee as you learn about how this central part of the city rose from the rubble after it was destroyed by a blaze in the 1500s.
