Ukraine's captial is Kiev. Ukraine has a population of ~44.9m and covers an area over 600,000 sq km. Major languages are Ukrainian (official) and Russian. Major religion Christianity. The currency is the hryvnya.
Ukraine gained independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and has since veered between seeking closer integration with Western Europe. Europe's second largest country, Ukraine is a land of wide, fertile agricultural plains, with large pockets of heavy industry in the east.
While Ukraine and Russia share common historical origins, the west of the country has closer ties with its European neighbours, particularly Poland, and nationalist sentiment is strongest there.
The images below are but a few impressions to whet your appetite. For our aircraft, engine and propeller clients, we would be happy to organise local trips to suit your time and budget, helping you experience Ukrainian life and culture.
