Where to go in December: winter vacation tours with family and friends in Ukraine
December was usually a time of summing up, holiday hustle and bustle, and dreams of the future. However, the year 2022 taught Ukrainians to turn dreams into plans and not to postpone life and travel. That is why the Visit Ukraine team has put together a selection of the most interesting tours for you, which are worth visiting in the first month of winter to recharge your batteries, experience a winter fairy tale or simply rest.
Transcarpathia is a place that you can fall in love with at first sight. The region has architectural monuments, unique nature, healing mineral and thermal waters. The "Miracles of Transcarpathia + SPA" trip will give you many unforgettable moments, introduce you to the culture of Transcarpathia and help you regain your strength.
In the SPA-complex you will find an area of pools, jacuzzis, saunas, as well as a bar and a restaurant, where you can eat delicious food and drink refreshing drinks after taking water treatments. The excursion program includes: a visit to the "Tustan" reserve - a defense complex from the time of Kyivan Rus, the "Palanok" castle - a unique example of medieval fortification architecture, a walk to the "Shypit" waterfall and many more interesting moments.
Those who want to fully immerse themselves in the atmosphere of relaxation are advised to visit the Relaxation Tour "Thermal Zalarpatia". The program includes swimming in the Kosino thermal pools and Lumshor vats, tasting wines from the Berehyvo region, a walk around Uzhgorod and an excursion to the castle of St. Miklos in Chinadievo. In two intense days, you will be able to restore your strength as much as possible.
Of course, many people associate December with winter vacation, so we invite you to Bukovel. Skiing, snowboarding and other winter equipment, as well as amazing national cuisine, landscapes that capture the eye and take your breath away, and most importantly - a good mood, that is, everything to relax your body and soul, await you during the trip "Ski tour to Bukovel".
Ukraine is also rich in historical and cultural monuments. In one tour "Chernivtsi, Kamianets-Podilskyi and Khotyn" it was possible to combine the three most important pearls of Bukovyna and Podillia: Chernivtsi University, Kamianetsk Fortress and Khotyn Fortress.
Chernivtsi is rightly one of the most beautiful cities of Ukraine, in which many peoples and cultures are intertwined. Of course, the city's landmark is the Chernivtsi University complex, which is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The town hall, theaters and churches of the city are also breathtaking. Everyone will find something special for themselves in Chernivtsi.
One of the most popular excursion routes in Ukraine is a trip on the so-called Golden Horseshoe. You can visit three picturesque castles: Zolochivskyi, Pidhoretskyi and Oleskyi during the tourist route "Golden Horseshoe of Lviv Region - Castles of Lviv Region". On the excursion, you will be introduced to:
• a monument of defensive architecture on the territory of Galicia - Zolochiv Castle;
• Pidhirtsi Castle, which combines Renaissance architecture and bastion fortifications;
• the fortress on the hill - Olesky castle.
If you find yourself in Lviv in December, we advise you to visit the "Austrian Lviv" excursion, because the Austrian period in the history of the city lasted almost 150 years and made a great contribution to the architectural appearance of Lviv. From 1772 to 1918, most of the medieval defensive structures were dismantled, replaced by new streets, houses and squares. Even today, Lviv residents and guests of the city live or work in luxurious Austrian houses.
