Ukraine Tour Packages

Ukraine has become a popular cheap tourism destination in recent years. While it lacks the polish and charms of Western Europe, it more than compensates with low pricing, stunning scenery, historic buildings, and sparse crowds.

Ukraine has become a popular cheap tourism destination in recent years. While it lacks the polish and charms of Western Europe, it more than compensates with low pricing, stunning scenery, historic buildings, and sparse crowds.

Ukraine became independent in 1991 as the Soviet Union fell apart, and it is now Europe's second-largest country, after Russia. Other countries, like as Poland, Lithuania, Romania, Czechoslovakia, and Russia, have dominated it throughout its history.

Ukraine is home to the world's deepest metro station, one of the most popular McDonald's restaurants, and some of Europe's oldest coffee shops. There are seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites here, as well as numerous ghost villages including the famed Tunnel of Love. While the recent invasion of Crimea by Russia necessitates caution near Russian borders, the country as a whole is still safe to visit.

It's inexpensive, enjoyable, and offers a lot if you venture off the usual path. The people are quite kind, the nation is affordable, and exploring the cities and countryside gives you a sense of going back in time.

Things to See and Do in Ukraine

Chernivtsi University is worth a visit.

This institution, which was founded in 1875, is the most intriguing piece of architecture in Chernivtsi, a city in western Ukraine. It's made of hundreds of colorful tiles and built out of neatly arranged red bricks. A pseudo-Byzantine-Hanseatic-Moorish style impacted the building's architecture. For 80 UAH, you can book a guided tour from the university.

Arcadia Beach is a great place to unwind.

This is the most well-known beach in the country. It was designed to be the country's main summer getaway site; therefore, it has a plethora of pubs, clubs, resorts, and cafes, making it a popular place to visit during the summer months (May-September). There is a waterslide on the main beach, as well as lots of area to swim and relax.

Explore the catacombs of Odessa.

This is the world's largest catacomb system. There are about 2,500 kilometers (1,553 miles) of catacombs beneath the city, which were built in the 17th century and expanded in the early 19th century when the city began mining for limestone (the limestone was used to build the city). The catacombs were used by Soviet rebels when the Germans forced them to retreat during World War II. While exploring on your own is risky (people still get lost and die down here), you can take a 2-4-hour tour to show you around. The starting price is 350 UAH.

The Bohdan & Varvara Khanenko Arts Museum is a must-see.

This museum in Kyiv houses an excellent collection of European art. The interior is lavishly decorated with frescoes, beautifully carved woodwork, precious antique furniture, and works of art. Expect to witness paintings by Peter Paul Rubens, Gentile Bellini, Jacob Jordaens, and Luis de Morales, as well as relics and works from Egyptian and Greek antiquity, Persian ceramics, Chinese paintings, and more! On the first Wednesday of each month, admission is free and costs 120 UAH.

Ploshcha Svobody is a great place to hang out.

This vast city plaza in Kharkiv, Ukraine's northeastern region, is one of the world’s largest. The first Soviet skyscraper, complete with geometrically-set concrete and glass blocks and bridges, sits at the western end. After Ukraine's independence, it was renamed Freedom Square and now covers 30 acres. Don't miss the empty pedestal where Lenin's statue once stood (it was toppled during protests in 2014).

Askania-Nova Reserve is a great place to see animals.

This massive reserve, which was established in 1898 and encompasses 333 square kilometers (128 square miles), is home to a diverse range of animals, including buffalo, deer, antelope, horses, zebras, camels, gnus, the rare Central Asian Saiga antelope, and a large number of birds. There are a few tiny settlements and one town within the reserve that can be reached by bus. You can go on a safari for roughly 150 UAH from April to November.

Lutsk Castle is a must-see.

This stronghold, which dates from the 14th century, is located in Lutsk's old area. The castle walls are about 1-3 meters (3-10 feet) thick and stand 13 meters (42 feet) tall. It has three large towers on top, which have repulsed sieges by Casimir the Great (1349), Jogaila (1431), and Sigismund K stutaitis, among others (1436). Over 1,000 Jews were slaughtered here during the Nazi occupation (though there sadly is no monument or marker to commemorate the tragedy). Archeological relics from the 12th century have been preserved and are on show today. You may traverse the ramparts and see the three towers that make up the main defensive walls, which are featured on the 200 UAH bill.

Visit the Chernobyl National Museum.

This modest museum in Kyiv is a nice preparation to a journey to Chernobyl. Three exhibitions are on display, highlighting the catastrophe, its aftermath, and the lessons we must learn to prevent it from happening again. It's both depressing and instructive. The cost of admission is ten Ukrainian hryvnias (UAH) or sixty hryvnias (UAH) with

Visit the Great Patriotic War Museum.

This is one of Ukraine's largest museums, and it tells the tale of the Second World War's German-Soviet fight. The museum, which is located in Kyiv and spans over 25 acres overlooking the Dnieper River, features over 300,000 artifacts as well as various monuments and memorials (including the 62-meter-tall Motherland statue).

St. Sophia's Cathedral is a must-see.

This UNESCO World Heritage Site in Kyiv was built in the 11th century and has a beautiful Baroque facade with 13 golden domes. Beautiful murals, mosaics, and centuries-old frescoes adorn the inside of the cathedral. During the Middle Ages, the cathedral was used as a burial site for Kyivan rulers. The bell tower of the church, which is named after Hagia Sophia in Turkey, provides beautiful views over Kyiv. The museum at the cathedral costs 20 UAH, while admission to the bell tower costs 60 UAH.

Pay a visit to Lviv.

Ukraine's cultural capital is Lviv. It has a Central European flavor and is full of history and wonderful architecture, and it is located 540 kilometers (335 miles) west of Kyiv. Don't miss a stroll around the Old Town (another UNESCO World Heritage Site), a visit to the Lviv Historical Museum, and a view from High Castle. Visit the Museum of Folk Architecture and Rural Life for an insight into the city's past (it's an outdoor museum with a variety of traditional wooden structures). It's a young city, as it's a university town, and it's home to many of the country's international students from all over Europe!

Take a stroll across the city.

Taking a walking tour is one of my favorite things to do when I visit a new place. It's the greatest way to get your bearings, and you might make some new friends in the process. Kyiv Walking Tours, Guru Walk, and Free Tour all provide free walking tours of Kyiv that cover the majority of the city's significant attractions. If you do decide to take a free tour, remember to tip your guide at the end. Get Your Guide also offers a variety of tours across the country, including museum visits and Chernobyl excursions.

Visit a one-of-a-kind museum.

Ukraine has to have some of the world's most interesting museums. In Kolomyya, there is a museum dedicated to the Ukrainian Easter egg, while in Kyiv, there is a Museum of Unnecessary Things, a Micro Miniature Museum, and a Toilet History Museum. Check out the gigantic crossword in Lviv, the brass Beer Belly of Ukraine (also in Lviv), and the Peeing Colors statues in Kyiv while we're looking at random locations and things.

Observe the sunflower fields.

One of Ukraine's most important exports is sunflower oil. It is said that there are enough sunflower fields to cover Slovenia, so finding one isn't difficult. For the greatest vistas, go in late July.

Hostels in Ukraine start from 130-250 UAH for a bed in a 6-10-bed dorm. The majority of hostels contain a kitchen and offer free Wi-Fi. Prices for a private room start at 260 UAH.

The cost of a night in a budget hotel starts at 560 UAH. You can find cheaper options, but they're usually fairly filthy. When it comes to decor, most cheap hotels are a little outmoded. Also, don't expect a lot of luxuries.

Airbnb is offered in major cities around the United States. Private rooms start at 520 UAH per night, while a whole house/apartment costs 1,000 UAH per night.

In Ukraine, wild camping is permitted as long as it is not done in nature preserves or near motorways.

How to Travel in Ukraine?

Bus - Ukraine's bus system consists of a combination of small, overcrowded, and antiquated buses as well as larger, more contemporary coaches. FlixBus is the ideal option because their buses are clean, reliable, and affordable.

Buses can take you almost anywhere in the country for less than 700 UAH, however if you're willing to change buses halfway, the cost can be half that.

Trains — For lengthier journeys across the country, trains are ideal. Although many of the trains have an outdated, Soviet feel to them, they are safe, dependable, and inexpensive. And, because there are so many overnight alternatives, you can usually save a night of lodging by taking an overnight train.

There are first-class couchettes, individual and shared beds, and standard seats. Because most salespeople do not speak English, purchase your ticket online or have your hostel/hotel write down everything you require and where you intend to travel.

The cost of a 9-hour flight from Kyiv to Odessa might be as low as 300 UAH. The cost of a 7-hour travel from Kyiv to Lviv is nearly the same, while a 13-hour trip from Kyiv to Loskutivka (near Luhansk) is 340 UAH.

Ukraine International Airlines is the country's principal domestic airline. Flights are inexpensive, with most domestic flights costing less than 1,000 UAH.

Hitchhiking - While hitchhiking has gotten more difficult since Russia's invasion of Crimea, it is still doable. Based on my experience, I wouldn't advocate it, but you may be more courageous than I am. Hitchwiki is the greatest place to go for further information.

When Should You Visit Ukraine?

Summer is the most popular season for tourists to visit Ukraine. From June to August, the weather is pleasant and sunny, with temperatures ranging from 18 to 24 degrees Celsius (64 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit). This is also the busiest season of the year. However, because the country only receives roughly 14 million tourists each year (a fraction of the 90 million visitors that a major location like France receives), don't expect to see large crowds.

Consider arriving in May or September/October to escape the busy summer season. Although it won't be as warm, you'll be able to see the flowers bloom in the Carpathians and watch the leaves change color in the autumn. Even if the nights are cold, the days are still pleasant for sightseeing and trekking.

Ukraine's winters are bitterly cold, with temperatures hovering around 0°C (32°F). I wouldn't recommend traveling in the winter unless you want to ski or participate in winter sports.
