This site is developed, designed, and maintained by me, David Loeffen.
I am, in no way, affiliated with any tour company, apartment rental management company, or any other business within Ukraine.
This site is not for profit; my goal is to raise Ukraine's attraction and popularity as a tourist destination.
Simply, I fell in love with Ukraine during my first trip. The culture, people, food, and the society overall; everything about Ukriane was fascinating and extremely welcoming.
I did a lot of research prior to my first trip to Ukraine in 2010. I found the information scattered all over the Internet. I had to weed through many pages in order to compile the information I needed before my trip.
The purpose for designing this site was simply to pull together all of the bits of information that I found useful, into one easy-to-navigate site.
