Things We Miss About the Ukrainian Outdoors

With the world on lockdown, many of us have been entertaining ourselves by finding online activities. A welcome pastime to enjoying the indoors is engaging in sports betting platforms like SBOBET. Another is plotting our next destination while we wait for the quarantine to tide over.

With so many popular tourist attractions around the globe, how do you decide? While Italy, Greece, and Hawaii rank among the top vacation destinations, Ukraine’s scenic landscapes and great outdoor activities rival the best holiday spots.

Since 2017, Ukraine has attracted over 14 million tourists to its majestic mountains, picturesque coastlines, and long-winding grapevines. Let’s take a look at what Ukrainian outdoors offer.


Lviv is a cultural center in Ukraine that houses some of the most beautiful displays of architecture. It has a UNESCO-protected old town that showcases a breathtaking array of old streets, spectacular churches, and buildings that boast architectural greatness.

Lviv is also rife with a wide variety of restaurants, pubs, and bars that offer great authentic food.

Chernobyl Tours

Ukraine’s perhaps most significant historical contribution is the unfortunate Chernobyl Power Plant disaster. In 1986, an explosion at the nuclear reactor at Chernobyl exploded instantly, resulting in 30 fatalities and exposing dozens more to radiation.

The Chernobyl Tours showcase the events leading to the fateful explosion by hosting a tour around the Chernobyl ghost town zone. It also features documentaries and monuments revolving around the Chernobyl catastrophe.

Former visitors and residents of Ukraine recommend this tour as a must-see activity.

Pripyat, Ukraine


No one can deny Kyiv’s charm. The iconic golden domes of Ukrainian churches in Kyiv are a favorite attraction for many tourists. Kyiv offers two spectacular sites: the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra, also called “Monastery of the Caves”, and the Saint-Sophia Cathedral.

Aside from excellent architectural designs, Kyiv is also famous for a local delicacy, “perepichka”, which is a fried bun with sausage between the buns. Both locals and tourists crave this yummy treat; the long lines are a testament to it.

Pereiaslav is known as the city of museums. It nests over 20 museums, each with a unique artifact. Among these museums is the open-air Museum of Folk Architecture and Rural Life, which many regard as one of the biggest open-air museums in the world.

Some of the more peculiar and interesting museums are the Museum of Bread, the Museum of Rushnyks, which features Ukraine’s decorative towels, and the Museum of Space Exploration.

Khotyn Fortress

Ukraine is home to many architectural marvels. One of them is the Khotyn Fortress, a strong contender for the country’s most majestic castle.

Many films such as The Viper (1965) and The Arrows of Robin Hood (1975) feature the castle. The Khotyn Fortress tours offer an exclusive glimpse of its interior and its breathtaking views.
