St Cyril's Church and Monastery

St Cyril's Church, which forms part of St Cyril's Monastery complex in the Ukrainian city of Kiev, is considered to be a superb example of 12th century Kievan Rus architecture. Despite the fact that changes have been made to the church at different times in its history, it retains distinctive elements of its origin. This is particularly evident in the interior of the church, with every wall, archway and ceiling richly and artistically decorated. Changes to the exterior have resulted in its appearance being largely Ukrainian Baroque in style, with definite influences from the 17th and 19th centuries.

Ancient Chersonesos Taurica

Located on the shores of the Black Sea, rubbing shoulders with the modern suburbs of the city of Sevastopol in the Crimea region of Ukraine, Chersonesos Taurica is an archaeological site of an ancient Greek colony which was founded around 2,500 years ago.

Welcome to Chernobyl

The deserted streets of the city are lined with buildings in disrepair. Empty playgrounds are a mere memory of the laughter that used to fill the air, as plants overgrow the sidewalks and a tattered doll rests motionless amongst the rubble. Nearby, a vehicle graveyard is home to helicopters, tanks and jeeps that were used to evacuate this once vibrant city and cannot be touched due to irradiation. The silence is broken by the whistling of the wind through the broken windows and the lonely creaking of the trees as they dance forlornly in the breeze. This is Chernobyl, and it is now welcoming all visitors.
