  • Ukraine is the largest all-European country and
the 44th largest country in the world.
  • It's located in Eastern Europe and shares borders with Poland,
Belarus, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova and Russia. The capital city is Kyiv.
  • Ukraine is home to seven sites protected by the 
UNESCO World Heritage List. These include Kyiv’s Saint-Sophia Cathedral and
Lviv’s historic centre, as well as unique wooden churches in the Carpathians
and the beech forests that surround them.
  • Ukrainian language is the only official language in Ukraine.
77.8% of the ethnic composition of Ukraine is Ukrainian;
Russians make up 17%, although the Russian language is understood by most.
Interestingly,  Ukrainian  was rated the 3rd most beautiful language,
in 1934,
behind French and Persian; it was also rated the 2nd most melodious,
behind Italian. 
  • The dominant religion is Eastern Orthodox Christianity,
which has heavily influenced Ukrainian architecture, literature and music.
  • The traditional Ukrainian diet includes chicken, pork, beef, eggs,
fish and mushrooms. Ukrainians also tend to eat a lot of potatoes, grains and
fresh and pickled vegetables. Ukrainian cuisine is extremely varied and exciting,
with different ethnic minorities and a rich multicultural history bringing a range of
different foods to the table.
  • Ukraine has a mostly temperate, continental climate.
Precipitation is disproportionately distributed; it is the highest in the west and
north and the lowest in the east and southeast.
Winters vary from cool along the  Black Sea to cold farther inland.
Average annual temperatures range from  5.5 °C–7 °C  in the north,
to 11 °C–13 °C in the south.

Summers are not so  hot and temperatures range from 17°C to 25(30) °C.
However, winters can be very cold, attracting lots of snow and
creating a beautiful wintery wonderland,  perfect to enjoy
an authentic christmassy getaway!
  • Also, Ukraine is  one of the youngest countries in the world.
It was only in 1991 that the country finally achieved its independence.

These years are very special for Ukrainian medical care - the country is
switching from the govermental funded "free" medical care to an insurance-based
system. Besides, Ukrainian ambulances, which have previously had a doctor on them,
now are switching to the paramedical concept.

Thus, it may be very interesting to see and experience these changes on your own,
as this will allow you to compare them both with your native one.
