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.
