About Ukraine


Along with being one of the most popular tourists destinations in Europe known for its splendid beauty and rich cultural heritage, Ukraine is widely regarded as the best platform for higher education among the Eastern/Central European countries. Ukraine has Europe’s largest international student population, with nearly 20,000 students enrolled in higher education. Around 8% are international students.

Geographical location

Ukraine is situated in the central part of Eastern Europe, on the crossroads of major transportation routes from Europe to Asia. Most of Ukraine is located southwest of the Eastern European plain.


Ukraine has a mostly temperate continental climate, although the southern Crimean coast has a humid subtropical climate. The average winter temperatures in Ukraine vary from -8° to -12° C. The temperature in the southern regions approaches 0° C. The average summer temperature ranges from 18° to 25° C.


Ukraine became independent when the Soviet Union dissolved in 1991. Ukraine is a unitary state composed of 24 oblasts (provinces), one autonomous republic (Crimea), and two cities with special status: Kiev, its capital and largest city, and Sevastopol, which houses the Russian Black Sea Fleet under a leasing agreement. Ukraine is a republic under a semi-presidential system with separate legislative, executive, and judicial branches. Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Ukraine continues to maintain the second-largest military in Europe, after that of Russia. Ukrainian is the official language of Ukraine. Russian is also widely spoken.


Christianity heavily influences Ukrainian customs, which is the dominant religion in the country. Gender roles also tend to be more traditional having elements of Asian family structures. The culture of Ukraine has been also influenced by its Eastern and Western neighbors, which is highly reflected in its architecture, music and art.

The tradition of the Easter egg, known as pysanky, has long roots in Ukraine dating thousands of years old, and precedes the arrival of Christianity to Ukraine. In the city of Kolomya near the foothills of the Carpathian mountains in 2000 was built the museum of Pysanka which won a nomination as the monument of modern Ukraine in 2007, part of the Seven Wonders of Ukraine attraction.


Music is a major part of Ukrainian culture, with a long history and many influences. From traditional folk music, to classical and modern rock, Ukraine has produced a long list of internationally recognized musical talent including Tchaikovsky, OkeanElzy and Ruslana. Elements from traditional Ukrainian folk music made their way into Western music and even into modern jazz.


The most popular sport is football. The top professional league is the VyschaLiha ("premier league"). The two most successful teams in the VyschaLiha are rivals FC Dynamo Kyiv and FC Shakhtar Donetsk. Although Shakhtar is the reigning champion of the VyschaLiha, Dynamo Kyiv has been much more successful historically, winning two UEFA Cup Winners' Cups, one UEFA Super Cup, a record 13 USSR Championships and a record 12 Ukrainian Championships; while Shakhtar only won six Ukrainian championships and first and last UEFA Cup. Ukraine co-hosted UEFA Euro 2012 alongside Poland.
