Writer Lala Tarapakina, video producer Ivanka Yakovyna and photographer Andriy Horb began their cross-country tour, dubbed “Find in Ukraine,” in Kyiv in mid-June. And they’re still on the road.
The team began out west, exploring attractions in the lush Carpathian Mountains, before heading south for sunshine and the seaside. Central Ukraine is still to be explored, but they’ll get there, they say.
“This is about discovering unknown sites of Ukraine, places that Ukrainians themselves know nothing about,” says Tarapakina.
In the first month, the team discovered 15 resorts and landmarks. Each spot received a detailed profile on the project’s website, www.findinukraine.com.ua, with photos and short videos. Reviews include details of accommodation, food, prices, safety, internet access, hospitality of local people and road conditions.
