Picturesque abandoned vintage cars

When you walk past these abandoned vintage cars of the last century, you can’t make yourself say that it is just a dump or a pile of rusty iron.

Unfortunately, these vintage cars won’t be restored and won’t get a “second life”. Photos by Oleg Grigoryev

The new president of Ukraine has been elected

After counting most of the votes in early presidential elections in Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, who is seeking integration with the West, has won with the result of about 53%. First time in the history, Ukrainian president is elected in the first round.

These were the first elections in two decades in independent Ukraine when the head of state is elected not in confrontation of the inhabitants of East Ukraine and West Ukraine. People all over Ukraine have elected their new president.

The new president will face a number of challenges – armed conflict in the south-east of the country, economic reforms, normalization of relations with Russia and many others. We want to wish good luck to Ukraine and its new president!

Beautiful architecture of Lviv

The architecture of Lviv, almost not affected during the wars of the 20th century, reflects many European styles of different historical epochs.

After fires in 1527 and 1556, there are almost no traces of Gothic Lviv, but later epochs (Renaissance, Baroque, and Classicism) are well presented.

The historic center of Lviv with architectural monuments of the 14th-17th centuries is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Photos by anderver
