Welcome to the Ukrainian culture and information center!
Ukraine is the second largest country in Europe in terms of area (233089 sq. ml) and fifth in Europe in terms of population (46.2 million people). The country is known as “The Breadbasket of Europe” due to its unique treasure – fertile black earth. Ukraine is a country with a thousand-year history whose roots reach back to the time of Kyivan Rus (9th century).
What is this country like today? For foreign travelers, its name sometimes evokes contradictory associations. For those who have not been here before, these are formal stereotypes: "Serhiy Bubka",“the Klitschko brothers”, the country co-hosting the Euro-2012 soccer tournament and, sadly, “Chornobyl”. For those who have seen the country from the inside, they are bright impressions, like “I am surprised how modern and nice this country is,” or “My main impression of Ukraine is its people, who are open, sincere, hospitable and beautiful.”
To visit Ukraine today is to feel the pulse of dynamic life in that part of the European continent which only 18 years ago was terra incognita for most foreigners. We are confident that becoming acquainted with Ukraine will turn into an unforgettable experience!
