Discovering Ukraine with Great Rail Journeys

The largest city in Ukraine is Kiev, the country's capital, which is situated in the central north. Its streets are lined with leafy horse chestnut trees and the Dnieper River flows straight through the centre. Golden domes of churches glint in the sunshine, and the mix of historic and contemporary architecture is enough to satisfy anyone with a penchant for beautiful buildings. If you happen to visit Kiev on a Ukraine rail tour, do not miss the stunning Saint Sophia Cathedral which was one of the first buildings in the country to be included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Another fine example of Ukrainian architecture is Saint Michael's Golden-Domed Cathedral and is also worth a visit and a photograph or two.

On a Ukraine rail tour you might also visit the city of Lviv, situated in the west of the country. Characterised by its distinctive green-domed churches, the city's historic centre is a fabulous mix of Rococo, Baroque, Renaissance and Gothic style architecture, which lines a maze of cobbled streets. You can enjoy excellent views of the city from the top of Castle Hill. Scattered around Lviv you will find numerous coffee houses, various museums and some lively farmers' markets to explore on your Ukraine rail tour.


For many travellers, Ukraine appears to have it all. From sultry beaches on the beautiful Black Sea coastline and the fresh air of the rugged Carpathian Mountains to the eclectic mix of architectural styles in the cities, a Ukraine rail tour will certainly give you a real taste for the country. Many holidaymakers travel to the mountains for hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter, and hotels and restaurants are springing up along the Black Sea coast to cater for the summer tourists. The countryside is made up of lush fertile plains, sparkling rivers and rustic vineyards, while ancient castles and little churches are scattered all around. See some of the fabulous views on a Ukraine rail tour.
