The views of Lviv from the City Hall

At first glance, the tower of Lviv City Hall doesn’t look very promising in terms of city views it can offer.

But after you’ve climbed the tower (the height is 65 meters), you realize that it is worth it. Photos by horoshiyblog

The salt desert near Odessa

Kuyal’nitsky estuary (liman) is an estuary located about 3 km to the north-west of the Black Sea coast (Odessa Bay), 5 km from Odessa. It is separated from the sea by three kilometers of a sand spit.

The lowest point of Ukraine (minus 5 meters above sea level) is located in this area. In the times of the Russian Empire, salt was mined here, and, during the Soviet era, this place was used as an all-Union health resort.

Kyiv is the capital and largest city of Ukraine standing on the Dnieper River in the north of the central part of the country. It is the seventh most populous city in Europe.

One of the features of Kyiv is a large amount of greenery. It may even seem that these are not the city’s parks, but the city itself is located in the middle of a huge park. See for yourself! Photos by Alexander Cheban
