The second largest country in Europe - almost twice the size of the United Kingdom - has attracted visitors with its picturesque spring grasses of its vast steppes as well as with his long Black Sea coast and the peninsula of Crimea. In my opinion, a unique tourist attraction is the Crimea. Crimea is a peninsula on the southern Ukraine, which is connected to the mainland by only a narrow passage - Perekopski, between the Black Sea and Azov. Due to the wealth of historical sites Crimea is also called "open air museum." In Crimea you can find traces of different civilizations. Ruins of ancient Greek cities: Pantikapea (out of Kerch) and Chersones (in Sevastopol). In addition, more interesting monasteries carved into the rock and "cave cities".
Crimea may be called "the miniature world", due to the incredible combination of sea, mountains, caves, steppes, canyons and waterfalls. In the north stretches the steppe - hot and dry, south-central region - is a beautiful Crimean Mountains.
The port and trading city of Odessa is enjoying great popularity especially among young people. Among the major attractions of the capital Kiev are the Skythengold and the monk mummies in the Kiev Cave Monastery on the western bank of the Dnieper, but also many other religious buildings, some of which are among the world cultural heritage. The historic center of Lviv with this award, and around the city granted an open-air museum insight into their rich history. Useful guides: Lonely Planet Publications

Sometimes the coach that picks you up from your departure point has only the final destination displayed on the front windscreen. This is because the majority of routes include multiple stops and it would be impractical to display every stop on the front windscreen. Also, you may have booked a journey which requires a change of coach. In both examples, please ask the driver to confirm that his/her coach is going to the destination stated on your ticket.

Single and return tickets (with the indicated date and time) are for a specific journey, you cannot miss the departure, because you will lose the ticket.
Best to buy tickets well in advance. The operator has many discounts for those who decide to purchase tickets in advance. Constant, although a slight discount is provided for youth, elderly and disabled people. Up to 50% discount is provided for children. Return fares are much cheaper than two single fares each way.

If there’s no office for check-in, then check-in takes place directly on the coach. Services returning to London arrive in Victoria Coach Station’s Arrivals terminal, customers making onward coach connections will need to cross the street to the Departures terminal
This route involves a sea crossing which, depending on which service you are on, will either by Eurotunnel or by ferry (check timetables for specific information). On arrival at the ferry port or Eurotunnel terminal customers will be required to disembark from the coach and pass through both UK and destination country Border Control offices and show their Passports. Normally customers are not required to be accompanied by their luggage, however occasionally Border Control officials do require customers to take their own luggage with them.

The best way to protect against unexpected accidents is to buy travel insurance. In my opinion, so that the journey is stress-free, you should never travel without travel insurance. You can insure for the whole journey and your stay. This will be the insurance that will apply during the journey and while in a foreign country. The insurance should cover: loss of cash and goods, cancellation of travel and medical treatment abroad. If you travel several times a year and want to save money, you may want to buy an annual insurance policy. Click here to buy insurance.
