Unique types of tourism in Ukraine in 2024


Currently, Ukraine is actively fighting for its freedom and the freedom of the whole of Europe. Therefore, in the conditions of the war, new types of tourism are developing in Ukraine, in particular, memory tourism - a trip to the de-occupied regions - is currently quite popular.

As part of the trip, participants will be able to hear the whole truth about the events that took place in Ukraine after the Russian invasion from eyewitnesses and even collect materials to create their own article, post, report or video about Ukraine to share the truth about the Russian invasion with the world.

The funds from the trip to the de-occupied regions are transferred to the restoration of Ukraine. They are currently conducting trips to the Kyiv region and the city of Chernihiv. Foreigners are accompanied to the de-occupied cities of Kyiv region (the villages of Romanivka, Bucha, Irpin, Gostomel, Borodyanka) or combine such a trip with a visit to Kyiv.
