About Ukraine




Ukraine is definitely a destination to be discovered. It is the largest country in Europe with 0.41% of the world’s territory and 0.85% of the world’s population. It borders the Russian Federation, Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Moldova, with the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south.


Ukraine is a place with fabulous nature, architectural landmarks and golden-domed churches. It is on the crossroads between Central and Eastern Europe, between the north and south. It has mountain ranges – the Carpathian mountains are good for skiing, hiking, fishing and hunting. The coastline on the Black Sea is a popular summer destination for vacationers.



Today, Ukraine is a cradle of well-wishing people and a country of sunflowers and endless blue skies.

Ukrainians respect all cultures and denominations, allowing foreign students to have days off from university to celebrate their own traditional holidays. Besides, this will give you an opportunity to show off your own culture. Ukrainian universities host various projects within the global cultural dialogue, where international students are able to share their traditions with fellow students.
