Lviv is often described as the “new Prague” or “little Paris”. We think it is simply a treasure! The Old Town of Lviv is a recognized World Heritage Site and has been preserved almost intact. As a protected World Heritage site, the breath-taking architecture spans the period from the late Middle Ages to the Second World War, to include many architectural styles that have developed through the centuries of Lviv’s existence – from Romanesque to Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassical and Modernism.
Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, is a beautiful city with its centuries-old history and rich culture. Once known for its grandiose streets and Soviet architecture, now the city is vibrant with independent coffee shops, concept stores and micro -breweries, where individuals can demonstrate their creative and commercial skills, denied for so many years. The new style sits well amongst the history and culture, of which the locals are immensely proud. It’s the next ‘must see’ destination on the city break scene.
Odessa is truly straight from literature. Its famous Potemkin Steps, immortalised in the classic 1925 silent film by Eisenstein, sweep down to the Black Sea and Ukraine’s largest commercial port. Behind them, a cosmopolitan cast of characters makes merry among pastel neo-classical buildings lining a geometrical grid of leafy streets. Immigrants from all over Europe were invited to make their fortune here when Odessa was founded in the late 18th century by Russia’s Catherine the Great.
