Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) is the central square of Kyiv. In January and February 2014, it was the place of armed clashes between security forces and Euromaidan activists which led to the change of power and the formation of a new Ukrainian government.

And this is how this place looks a few months later. The barricades and tents have been removed and the square looks almost the same as it was before these historical events. Photos by Oleg Stelmakh

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.

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.
