Ukraine is the largest country in Europe which not many people are aware of this fact. At 603,628 sq. km., it stretches from Russia in the east to Poland in the west, with the Black Sea running along its southern border. It’s nearly three times the size of the UK and beats the second biggest country, France, by 50,000 sq. km. With such a large land, Ukraine has diverse sceneries to offer: from the beautiful Carpathian mountains with picturesque forests, rivers and valleys, to beautiful beaches. Ukraine is also rich in culture with seven sites listed by the UNESCO World Heritage List including Kyiv’s Saint-Sophia Cathedral, Lviv’s historic center, Chernivtsi University and unique wooden churches in the Carpathians, the beech forests that surround them.
Ukraine is a highly traditional country where customs and old time practices still plays a central role in its everyday life. For example vyshyvanka, an inonic embroidered shirt widely recognized around the world, is a part of traditional Ukrainian attire as well as everyday life with trendy twists by many Ukrainian brands which creates their own interpretations of its shape, colour and length to make them popular items all over the world. Fashion celebrities like Vogue Japan editor Anna dello Russo and vedette, burlesque dancer, model, fashion designer Dita Von Teese have been spotted in vyshyvanka.
From joyful Pysanky (Painted Wooden Eggs) to funky and playful Matryoshka/Babushka dolls, from charming earthenware and ceramics with birds, animals and people prints to handmade lacquered wood boxes with lovely flora patterns, from glorious embroider shirts to Ukrainian Folk Blouse (Chemise), the more we learn about Ukraine, the deeper we fall in love with this magical country.
