The Ukraine is not one of the top choices for Brits holidaying abroad – the country has seen more than its fair share of trouble. The most devastating even was the explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear plant in 1986, which caused huge problems both in the Ukraine which was part of the Soviet Union at the time, and across Europe.
Nowadays, Ukraine is still fighting battles, this time with Russia, with military clashes on the Ukraine and Russia border, this region is certainly not an advisable place for tourists to visit.
However, much of the Ukraine is beautiful, from the stunning city of Kiev to the rural regions of fields, forests and lakes, for stunning scenery the Ukraine has it all. As well as this, the disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear plant has actually been the reason for a more tourists visiting the Ukraine in recent years – this, and the popularity of the 2019 tv series, Chernobyl has meant that many people are keen to see for themselves what is left of the reactor, and wander around the haunting town of Pripyat, the town closest to the plant that was evacuated and left in eerie silence 3 days after the explosion.
Despite some of the trouble in the Ukraine, the majority (even Chernobyl) is perfectly safe to visit and you can purchase travel insurance from any good insurance company such as these insurance brokers Bristol.
Remember you must try the traditional Borscht bread, and of course the chicken Kyiv! All washed down with the Ukrainian drink Horilka!
