Being out in the wild is a remarkable experience that everyone should go through at least once in their lifetime. And while traveling in Ukraine, you will have many opportunities for this type of tourism, especially if you visit the Ukrainian Carpathians. Whether you are going on a one-off trek or you are a regular trekker or hiker, you likely prioritize staying connected and safe during such a journey.

Having a smartphone on a trek is smart because you can use your phone to call for help or get directions. You can use other useful apps on a trek, such as compass apps or flashlight apps.

Top Travel Attractions of Kyiv

Kyiv is an often overlooked destination, even though it has a lot to offer to many different types of travelers. It has a rich culture and a long and fascinating history. The city is also a fun destination for those looking to explore Eastern European nightlife and its club scene.

The best way to explore Kyiv is in your own car since that gives you a sense of freedom you wouldn’t have on an itinerary set by others. In order to do so legally, you’ll need to get an international drivers license on IDA website and to bring your national driving license with you. Once you have every document prepared, you can start planning everything else.
