Lviv is a dream for any photographer – with its cobblestoned streets matched with classical and renaissance architecture, Lviv is known as the Paris of Ukraine for a reason... With its eclectic mix of people, and street performers on every corner – you won’t know where to look! Explore the many contrasts of Lviv, from its decadent Opera House, to street sellers at the Vernisage open air Market. Take part in photography workshops and seminars, and then we will take you to exclusive spots to get the best shots. See Lviv by day and by night, because trust us, this is a city that never sleeps...
Travelling up into the Carpathian Mountains is a sight to behold... Sweeping green forests, quaint wooden houses, ancient Hutsul churches and never-ending hills – it’s hard not to feel at-one with nature when you breathe in the fresh mountain air... Hutsulschyna is a wondrous place, full of colour and quirks, rich in customs and tradition. You’ll get to experience nature at its best, with trips up into the Carpathian hills for views over the green valleys; dive into Hutsul culture with a visit to a Hutsul instrument maker, and take part in a Hutsul Zabava at one of the houses of the locals! Not forgetting a trip to Kosiv bazar – truly a once in a lifetime experience – the locals here sell everything from antiques to handmade blouses, to washing machines and old Lada parts. Get your camera ready!
Welcome to Tulova... A small, authentic Ukrainian Village: here the locals are keen to welcome you into their village, to show you around, to experience their culture and day to day life. Take a walk around the village, explore the untouched countryside, even help in the garden, or to look after the animals! See inside the houses of true Ukrainians (and where they make their home brew vodka!) –you’ll be able to taste it later as you experience the famous Ukrainian hospitality at its best!
Chernivtsi – the Capital of Bukovyna – is a cosmopolitan and multicultural city considered one of Ukraine’s most important educational and architectural sites... Its spectacular University is an ancient, magical collection of buildings, which will take you back in time as you step through its doors... Speaking of time travel, you’ll get to see how local princes and rulers lived at the fortress of Kamianets Podilsky. Explore this medieval city, founded on an island, and look out over the river from its ancient towel walls and turrets..
We will return to beautiful Lviv for a last few days of exploring, sightseeing, some souvenir shopping. and taking those last, perfect shots.
