When you think of European countries, you often think of either really advanced buildings that are architectural masterpieces or small town villages that have tons of cattle and fields of wheat.
But what if I told you, you can find both of these traits, in one small country? Well, you probably wouldn’t believe me but Ukrain has exactly those two everywhere in its land! So that means learning about history as well as enjoying modern activities and even more!
So to help you on your trip to Ukraine, we made this list of the three best cities to visit that have just about everything for everybody. So without further ado, let’s get started!
The capital city of Ukraine does not disappoint with its collection of traditional buildings, breathtaking architecture, and medieval monuments all scattered around the city.
If you’re looking for the place to experience Ukraine at its finest, you just have to visit Kiev, which is already highly considered to be the grand getaway in Eastern Europe. So peaceful streets and serene fields will be what awaits you when you do visit Kiev. The perfect getaway from all the hustle and bustle around you, isn’t it?
Some pretty notable places to visit here is the Kyevo-Pecherska Lavra, which is a historic Christian Monastery filled with traditional buildings, and the Saint Sophia Cathedral which is an ancient church built around the 11th century. Either way, you’ll be getting a lot of history from both.
Considered to be the third-largest city in the country, Odessa is the place to go if you want to hit the beaches for a nice and laid back vacation.
It is generally visited thanks to the sandy beaches, attractive weather, and warm waters. Odessa is a beautiful city that and although considered to be the third-largest in the country, can often feel compact and in place. This is thanks to all the narrow winding roads and tons of secluded areas that make it feel as if the whole city is within your grasp.
A great place, and the most visited, to start is the Potemkin stairs which will take you from the center of town all the way to the beachfront. Or, you can check out the Odessa Opera House which is also the second-largest theater in the whole world!
For the best and most authentic Ukrainian experience, then the place to be in the city of Lviv thanks to all the traditional buildings and culture that have been preserved for decades.
The city of Lviv is one of the most important cultural centers in Ukraine and has the UNESCO-protected Old Town which has some of the most colorful and quirky buildings you will ever see. It is an amazing sight to behold, which is also more than enough for everybody to come and visit. And we still haven’t talked about all the culture you can find here too!
But that is a story for another time.
The Eastern European Country of Ukraine has often underrated thanks to people sayings its just a boring wasteland with no fun at all. But contrary to that, Ukraine is a historical country that has withstood a lot of Europe’s turmoil, and the fact that they are still there and continuously developing is a great feat in and of itself! So come and see what Ukraine has in store for the world before everybody else see’s it! …
When it comes to the different states in America, there is one that really stands out, Alaska. This is mainly because of the fact that it’s actually separated from the rest of the states. But is this something that makes it unwanted or looked down on?
No! In fact, that is one of its best features and part of what makes the state a mystery and one that adventurers would absolutely love to explore. It is an amazing state where you will be thrust upon the frontier. So to help you out and not get overwhelmed, here are the best places to visit in Alaska.
Wrangell St. Elias National Park
When you’re looking for that sense of adventure and want to explore the vastness of nature, then you can come ahead to Wrangell St. Elias National Park for, what could be, the best adventure in your life. Why? Well, this park is actually considered to be the biggest national park in all of America. It can be found in the core of the Mountain Kingdom of America.
But, what can you do here? Well, just about anything you can! You can go camping, go off the trail and onto the glaciers, you can hike said glaciers, go swimming, and pretty much any kind of recreational activity you can do outside. Except, with a better view. Much better.
When you’re gonna come from a cruise, then chances are, this will be the first city your ship will dock in Alaska. It is a harbor that dates back centuries and has only flourished from then on. And is a bustling city filled with multiple attractions for you to visit. Such attractions include the Totem Heritage Center, the Tongass Historical Museum, and the Southeast Alaskan Discovery Center.
But if you really want to have a scenic view of the city, then head on over to Creak Street. It’s home to a lot of quiet and small establishments, but what you really want here, is the view. So if ever you’re in town, why don’t you have a look yourself to believe me?
Another amazing feature of Ketchikan is the architecture of the homes along the ocean. Most homes are built with concrete foundations like the ones Cement Tech LLC in Astoria, Queens, NY builds for their customers.
However, with the home being so close to the ocean, these homes must be built on wooden stilts. Also, because wood is so plentiful in this area of Alaska, building with concrete usually isn’t cost effective.
Denali National Park.
Considered the most famous park to visit in all of Alaska, Denali National Park is sure to make your jaws drop with one of the best views you will ever see in your life. This national park is considered to be the most popular in Alaska, thanks to Mount McKinley being the key attraction here, which is the highest mountain in America.
And more than that, the Denali National Park is also a protected wilderness area, so don’t be scared when you suddenly find bears roaming around, or a pack of wolves hunting some deer. So if you really do want to be able to experience that wild and adventurous life, then this is the place for you.
When it comes to beautiful sceneries, breathtaking views, stoic mountains, cold weather, and that fiery passion for adventure, none can do it like Alaska. Here, you will be able to live your wildest dreams in nature. And that should already be enough for you to visit, but here are just a few more!…
