Making of Ukraine Inside Out:
We wanted to create an app to help people explore the little known sites in Ukraine. Everyone knows about the big cities of Kyiv, Odessa and Lviv but do you know about Aktovckie Canyon, the Ukrainian Stone Henge, Bakota or Monastarichie?
Ukraine is full of amazing wonders. We have hiked through canyons, trudged around the only desert in Europe, swam in 2 seas climbed mountains and crawled through caves during this trip. We have explored palaces, investigated castles, wondered through places where ancient rituals took place, and somberly looked on dozens of memorials to past and present wars in Ukraine.
In the making of this app we will have spent the entire summer of 2017 on motorcycle traversing Ukraine. From north to south and east to west we saw as many sites as possible and have done our best to give them an honest review. We are not claiming to have seen every site possible in Ukraine but we have done our best to show you as many sites as we could find.
