One of the most famous sites, and main tourist attractions, which have become one of the "visit cards" of Kyiv and Ukraine. It is Sofiyivska Square. And for those of you who're interested, I share some of its interesting story illustrated with my photographs.
The square is named after St. Sophia Cat
I saw pictures of animals and a beautiful landscape, and told myself - I want to go there! But when my husband and I arrived and saw everything with our own eyes, it turned out that everything was much more serious here.

Hello from Ukraine!
It has been a long time since I last wrote a travel post. Today I will tell you about a nice place that is close enough to Kyiv for a day walk or for a few days of rest in a tent. It is a picturesque lake surrounded by pine forest and granite rocks. Locals call it Korostyshivsky
Once, millions of years ago these lands were all under the waters of Red Sea. Later, receded water cut out a unique geological formation that is called today Colored Canyon.

It was my first visit to Egypt, and the first desert ride. All-day tour included 3 types of riding: SUV, quad, and camel (and walking by feet as well). All 3 types of vehicle are used by Bedouins nowadays.

I did not like geography or history at school. These courses always seemed plane and boring to me. Who would have thought that I would love them due to my travels!..
Telling about region of Podillia, it would be unforgivable to omit mention of the really unique geological formation.
Today I'm going to talk about a rather unusual place, at least for Ukraine. Old Jewish cemeteries are some of the most interesting and, unfortunately, little known monuments of Ukrainian history.
Jewish cemetery in Sataniv, Ukraine
We call it also "Kirkut". On my 1st visit to Sataniv, I was told
