A Trip to West Ukraine

Chernitvsi, Yaremche, Lviv and Kiev. I spent most of my summer holidays traveling in a place where, except for Kiev, marketing tourism has not arrived yet. Being a tourist in West Ukraine, however, it’s more or less like being in another time: cars are the same of 30 years ago, people still farm in their own land and most of the families got a cow. In the city they live in a very simple way too. The war is still there, in the East part of the Country, and you can feel it even if newspapers don’t tell you. I documented places and stories of Ukraine that defined my travel.
