Maria and Odarka

Eight of us travelled in a comfortable, new minibus around Ukraine for 26 days from Kyiv to Lviv in August -September 2019. The sun shone and the sunflowers filled the fields. What a memorable holiday! In Kyiv we walked beside the Dnipro River, saw some magnificent churches, the catacombs and parks. We ambled down some boulevards and ate delicious Ukrainian food like Mama used to make. Sometimes even pizza when we wanted a quick lunch! Watched the Independence Day march and mingled with the happy crowds in the Maidan. We travelled to Odessa, Vinnytsia, Kamyanets Podilskyi, Kolomyia with the big pysanka, Karpaty villages, Ivano Frankivsk and then, the beautiful city of Lviv. Everywhere the greenness of the country will surprise you. Saw an opera, visited a school, shopped at malls for modern fashions as well as in village markets where we found some Ukrainian crafts at bargain prices! The hotels were excellent and air-conditioned. All the comforts of home. The guides spoke English as well as Ukrainian! They were very informative and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We had a lot of laughs with them and the drivers were very helpful with our luggage. If I can I will go again. Thank you Dorosh Heritage Tours!!
