If you don't have time to explore all the parts of this marvelous country, just drive several kilometers outside Kiev and spend all your day here, The vast area gives you the chance to explore the country within a day. Make sure to set off early.

one of the best place in nature, every old small house are interesting to see, big nature place to spend a full day and to eat traditional food. A lot of green and nature places in Kiev and Pirogovo is one of the best. You need one bus to be there and the tickets and food are very cheap.

Here you will get a very good idea of how old villagers in the area used to live through different times. You will even how churches were. Nice place (long walk, or drive in, or by bike), and you can even have eat local cuisine at some small shops.
