Ukraine’s capital Kiev is one great place on its own - it connects very well the ancient and the modern. It’s a city equally loyal to ‘babushka’s and newly-rich oligarchs on fancy jeeps, to quiet idyllic parks and bustling highways, to top-notch supermarkets and farmers’ bazaars, and to any traveler who approaches it with an open mind and a heart for adventures.

So leave all your toys at home, pack a laser scope and Geiger counter and get ready for completely new adrenaline blast!!
