Ukraine is the largest country in Europe. Well, apart from Russia, but that country is not entirely in Europe. It seems there are few places left in the world to explore, but Ukraine provides travelers with a genuine last frontier that is full of warm-hearted locals and off-the-map sights that you will never forget.

The country has plenty to offer, from the beautiful Carpathian Mountains to the bustling city center of Kyiv and the beach parties of Odesa. However, if you are planning to travel widely across Ukraine, you will want to find ways of saving money on your trip. Thankfully, Ukraine has a host of affordable accommodations to choose from.

Aircraft Cemetery in Poltava, Ukraine

Poltava Aircraft Cemetery is a former tactical military airfield located about 8 km northwest of the city of Poltava. It is one of two landing strips close to Poltava, the other being Poltava Airport.

The landing strip was once used to prepare Soviet pilots. Previously, this territory was the Pokryshkin Flight Training Center. It was one of the best flight schools, which trained combat pilots for three air regiments based in Zaporozhye.

Your task is to learn how to make hints and half hints with the help of well-chosen details. Indeed, as practice shows, it is not direct “quotes” that look much more spectacular, but allusions. And the main characteristic features of the Soviet design past today have become obvious (even international) trends.

Advice: Use the obvious references to the Soviet era – do it carefully and dosed. Otherwise, your story will completely turn into decorative kitsch. Which is good for a stylized restaurant, but not quite suitable for a residential setting.
