Ukraine Travelogue - Kiev Lviv Ivano-FrankivskMy mom is a full blooded Ukrainian. Her mother came from just north of Lviv, while her father was from the Carpathian mountains. In 2006 I realized a life-long dream and took a trip with her and 8 other relatives to visit those regions of Ukraine.
In these travelogue pages you can enjoy over 1,000 photos of Ukrainian landscapes, villages, art and architecture. I also provide step by step details of travel and life in Ukraine. Whether you're planning your own trip to Ukraine, or just would like a virtual vacation to the "breadbasket of Europe," you'll find lots to explore here.
I've provided both my standard long, in depth travelogues for people who want to know exactly how a trip like this goes, as well as a brief highlights version for those just skimming for general information. You can jump to any day from this page, or start at the first day and wend your way through them all. Enjoy!
