Eastern European tourism has of course been booming in the past decade, and will no doubt recover much of its popularity as the world emerges from coronavirus/COVID-19 lockdown and people begin traveling more again. But the country of Ukraine - Europe's biggest after Russia - has remained more under the tourism radar, attracting a relatively modest 10 million or so visitors in recent years, a good chunk of those business rather than leisure travelers. Part of this is down probably to poor marketing, but also to its conflicts over the past half dozen years with Russia over the Crimea and the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine. But even in the case of the latter, conflict is limited to a relatively small part of the country, and that leaves a huge unaffected area including dynamic capital Kyiv; historic, cosmopolitan  cities Lviv and  Kharkiv; ecotourism and adventure in the gorgeous Carpathian Mountains; even notorious Chernobyl near the northern border (yes, you can take nuclear-disaster-themed tours in the area, though obviously not at the facility itself).
