Best Time To Visit
Travel in the Ukraine is possible all year round; however the best times to go are spring(March to May), when the blossoms are on the trees, and autumn(September to November), when the weather is most clement.
In summer (June to September) it can be very hot on the Black Sea coast, and busy with Russians and Ukrainians relaxing by the sea. Winter is obviously cold but the domes and spires of Kiev in particular look fabulous under a layer of snow.
