Ukraine is one of the largest countries in Europe with lots to see and explore. From the magnificent golden domes of Kiev to the summer sun on the Black Sea and local specialties, Ukraine will charm foreign tourists.

the great accessibility to visit and live in Ukraine makes it perfect for budget travellers. According to the Visit Ukraine website, Ukraine is safe to visit in most cases.

Popular destinations in the country like the capital Kiev and the coastal city of Odessa are quiet and pleasant.

The troubled areas affected by the war with Russia are located in the south-east of the country, very far from the capital. Occasional demonstrations may take place in major urban centers across the country, and foreigners are advised to stay away from these events.

In Kyiv, most protests take place in Maydan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) and government buildings such as the Verkhovna Rada (Parliament building) and the National Bank of Ukraine.

Petty crime like pickpocketing may occur, but the level of risk is comparable to that of most tourist destinations around the world and can be minimized by using common sense.

Public transport in major cities is punctual and reliable, while road conditions in rural areas can be poor and visibility limited.

International tourists should avoid all travel to Crimea. This includes transit through Sevastopol and Simferopol airports.

Since many countries do not recognize Russian control over Crimea, chances are you would have very limited consular support in Crimea.

All travel should be avoided in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions due to the presence of armed groups. If you are already in the area, avoid large crowds and demonstrations, lay low and leave the area. Consular assistance will be very limited in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.

Unvaccinated citizens must install the Vdoma application. Most foreign travelers must have an insurance policy issued by a Ukrainian insurance company or a foreign insurance company that has a representative office in Ukraine

Russian military threats against Ukraine have entered a period of acute risk “over the next few days”, according to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who met with NATO leaders.

Johnson said: “This is probably the most dangerous moment, I would say, over the next few days in what is the biggest security crisis Europe has faced in decades. We have to do it right. And I think the combination of sanctions and military determination, plus diplomacy… is what’s in order.
