Ukraine, because of its location is crucial to the future of Western Europe, Russia and the Far East. The capital of Ukraine is Kiev. Languages spoken include Ukrainian and English. The official currency in Ukraine is the Hryvnia (plural Hryvni).
The rate of exchange fluctuates and can be anywhere from 1.7 - 7 Hryvni to 1 American Dollar. Ukraine is rich in natural resources, fertile soil, extensive forests and vast mineral deposits. The natural charms of Ukraine are slowly supplanting the dismal Soviet legacy that has deterred so many visitors in the past.
Despite the ominous ruins of Chernobyl (the corroded nuclear reactor there is now a tourist attraction) from roaming its rolling countryside, where villages are set amid silver birches, to basking in the aging brilliance of Yalta or exploring nightclubs in the sophisticated capital city, Kiev has transformed itself into an outpost of Western Europe. As far as climate is concerned, summers are warm while winters are cold with snowfall.
