Ukraine is an Eastern European country, bathed by the Black Sea and bordered by Poland, Romania, Moldova and Russia. Thanks to its large, fertile lands, it is one of the main grain exporters in the world. In terms of total area, it is the largest country entirely within Europe, with a total population of 44 million inhabitants, whose main religion is Orthodox Christianity. In fact, Orthodox churches are one of the best-known symbols of Ukraine, as is the case of the gold-domed St. Sophia's Cathedral, in the capital city, Kiev, where you will also find history museums (as the Ukrainian National Chernobyl Museum), secular monuments and other examples of religious architecture, as the Kiev Pechersk Lavra monastery, with its tomb relics and catacombs. The lush green Carpathian Mountains are a great natural setting, and the cities of Donetsk, Odessa, Dnipropetrovsk and Kharkiv have their own tourist attractions.
This country’s climate is mostly temperate, with cool to cold winters, as you get farther inland, and warm summers, especially in the south. However, the Black Sea coastline has a more subtropical climate, making it very appealing for tourists. The live weather cams will give you more details on the atmospheric conditions.
