Spring is the time when nature wakes up from its hibernation, filling the air with fragrances and colours. Ukraine, a country with a rich cultural heritage and beautiful nature, offers many places where you can enjoy the blooming of various plants, even those such as the sakura, which is considered a symbol of Japan.

So, we're going to tell you where to go to see and take pictures against the backdrop of the charming flowers.

Sakura trees in Kyiv

Sakura, or wild cherry, is primarily associated with Japan. However, thanks to climatic conditions, this wonderful flower can be found in Ukraine.

Despite the fact that it is only the beginning of April, real spring warmth has come to Kyiv, giving the locals an early awakening of the cherry blossom.

The first trees began to bloom in the Dniprovskyi and Desnianskyi districts, but soon the blossoms will be available in all districts of the capital. However, keep in mind that cherry blossoms bloom for about two weeks, so you should hurry up with your walks in Kyiv parks.

Here are some of the locations where sakuras grow in Kyiv:

Dniprovskyi district - Peremohy Park;

Desnianskyi district - Kyoto park;

Darnytskyi district - Partisan Glory Park;

Shevchenkivskyi district - Independence Square, Munich Square, Volodymyrska Hill, Landscape Alley;

Narcissus Valley

The blooming season of the Narcissus Valley, located in Zakarpattia, will soon begin. Every year, thousands of tourists come to this location to enjoy this beauty.

A rare and beautiful natural phenomenon is located near Khust in Zakarpattia. In spring, the fields are covered with wild daffodil flowers, creating incredibly picturesque landscapes. 

The emergence of the Transcarpathian relict Narcissus Valley is associated with the Ice Age, when a huge layer of land slid down from the mountains along with unique plants. After the ice melted, a lot of water flowed down from the mountains, which contributed to the acclimatisation, flowering and spread of the narrow-leaved daffodil. 

Usually, the season of these flowers begins in May, so don't miss the opportunity to visit this wonderful place.

At the same time, Zakarpattia offers more than just daffodils.  In particular, at the end of March, magnolias (Uzhhorod), crocuses and primroses (Kolochava), and turf (Vynohradiv) bloom in the region.

We remind you! Bukovel is not only a resort for skiers, but also a place where everyone can find something to their liking. From hiking and cycling along picturesque trails to relaxing SPA treatments. Find out what to do in Bukovel this spring here.
