Kyiv in Ukraine has long been a focus of interest for life and culture in Central Europe. A city that has seen the Mongols, the Soviet Union, and the rise and fall of a dozen empires, its a city with a huge amount of history. Kyiv is equally blessed with an incredible array of architecture and a blossoming food scene (where traditional Ukrainian food is getting the same gourmet reinterpretation every great cuisine is getting). Forbes recommends skipping Paris to visit it and Language Link agrees!
