Have you ever been to Ukraine?

Would you like to go there?

A landscape of Ukraine is very marvellous: ranging from the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov to the Carpathian Mountains.

The ukrainian Venice called Vylkove is like a real Venice in Italy which does not have any firm streets for cars but only water channels for moving by boat from one place to another.

In general, Vylkove is a small town located in the Ukrainian part of the Danube Delta in the 

South-West of Ukraine. 

Since 2013, the words "Ukraine", "Kiev", "Maidan", "Donbass", "Crimea" have been heard more and more often in mass media.

The reason for that was the Ukrainian Revolution (also known as the Euromaidan Revolution or Revolution of Dignity) which took place in February 2014 when a series of violent events, involving protesters and unkown shooters in Kiev, culminated in the resignation of Ukrainian President, Victor Yanukovych. This lead to series of changes in a sociopolitical system of Ukraine like an annexation of the Crimean Peninsula and military actions in Donbass.

But what are the People living there like?

What is their Lifestyle  like?

 

They are quite common, friendly and religious as Orthodox... They love fun, sports, music, fashionable garments, good cuisine, their families and children.

 


Night Clubs

Does a night life in Ukraine exist?

Yes, of course!

 

Among the most popular clubs of Ukraine is also the club «SAN'KOFF» in the city LvivTo this Night Club belong a summer terrace cafe and a lounge in the evening.

The format of music is mostly commercial including foreign and national sounds.

Not less popular is the Night Club"Forsage Dance Club" in the capital city Kiev.

Since the opening in 2006 and up to present the Club has remained the favorite place of the metropolitan youth, following the latest world trends.

The kinds of music are of a great variety concerning sounds and performance.

The Club offers four separate Dance Floors with completely different music formats that can satisfy the most sophisticated taste.

Also a water pipe room "The Level Up Lounge"  is a perfect place for recreation with taste!
The Martini Lounge Bar  in the Club means the Dance Floor, where parties in R`n`B format are mostly dominated. At the same time, the Martini Lounge Bar turns by day into a quiet and cozy restaurant, which you can visit to taste the best dishes from the chef of the Club.

Music

Ukraine is the country of melodies. The history of the ukrainian music development since the Declaration of Independence of Ukraine on 1 December 1991 went through several stages.

It includes rebellious rock, which called for freedom, calm melodies that inspire harmony, and unusual experimental rhythms that put the Ukrainians on the level of foreign musicians.

 

Here are some examples of Ukrainian Musical World early and now.

The band "Brunettes Shoot Blondes" is established  in 2010, but it became known in September 2014.

In early 2015, the band released a debut album "Bittersweet", as well as a clip of the same name, created in partnership with the German auto giant Opel.

Fashion

Ukraine is not only a country of melodies, music and delicious cuisine. It is also a country of fashion, stylish and eco-friendly outfits. Models of Ukrainian clothes gain podiums on international fashion shows more and more often.


What are the Ukrainian designers like?

For example, a designer Lilia Pustovit founded her own brand "Poustovit".

For the last 5 years, the brand "Poustovit" has been developing two lines of clothing: "Poustovit" and "Poustovit for Atelier1".

The main features of the brand combine romantic conceptualism with the ethnic background.

The clothing of another designer Victoria Gres with her brand "Victoria Gres"  is a little different and more elegant. The designer aims at creating garments that are always fashionable.

The brand consists of three lines of clothing: "Victoria Gres by GRES", "Victoria Gres DENIM", "Victoria Gres Couture". She is also developing direction "Gres decor"  with interior decoration.

Even when not all Ukrainians wear clothing of leading designers, nevertheless, they try to get dressed fashionably and look stylish.

It should also be emphasized that especially embroidered outfit is very popular in Ukraine like a t-shirt in the picture on the left.
