TRIP DETAILS

Ukraine is an ideal country for creative photography.  This is a true paradise for architecture, street and model photography with its old historical buildings and churches from tsar period (until 1917) or monuments and buildings from Soviet period. Houses, streets and palaces are often in original untouched condition, not reconstructed yet.  Their cracked and damaged facades are what make them an ideal background for model photography.  Old soviet abandoned factories are excellent background too. Local people are happy to be photographed.  Street photography is much easier in Ukraine then in any other European country.

 

Our photo tour includes 3 cities:  Kiiv – the capital, western Ukrainian Lviv and Odessa – situated in south of the country, on the Black sea cost. The transportation between cities are mainly trains: Kiiv – Lviv 5,5H, Kiiv – Odessa 7H, or, as an alternative, domestic flights. From Lviv to Odessa it is possible to take an overnight sleeper train (10H) or to fly via Kiev, where taking connection flight is necessary.

 

Hotels in all three cities are excellent, but we would still suggest 4 star category. Ukrainian cuisine is outstanding, truly delicious one.  Kiiv, Lviv and Odessa are safe. The overall safety situation is very similar to other European cities.
