Ukraine Expecting Tourism Surge in 2013

Ukraine has consistently been named one of the top destinations to visit in 2013, making an appearance on several influential 'must-visit' lists, including those of the National Geographic, TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet.

THose involved in the tourism industry are hoping for a boost in demand for flights to the Ukraine in 2013, generated in part due to interest in the country after it hosted the EURO 2012 football championships. The National Geographic list of 20 Must-See Places starts off with Southern Ukrainian Crimea and TripAdvisor also named Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, its top destination on the rise among the cities of The Old World and placed it third in the world’s top ten ranking.

The Lonely Planet ranked Lviv, a city in western Ukraine, as the second best place for a weekend break in Europe, with the number of UNESCO World Heritage sites to visit playing a large factor in its ranking.  It also named the Chernobyl Reactor in Ukraine the eighth spookiest building in the world. The Chernobyl Reactor is the site of the biggest nuclear disaster in the world, which happened in 1986. The Salt Tunnels of Solotvyno in Ukraine also came tenth in The Lonely Planet’s World’s Saltiest Sights list.

Ukraine also made it onto the Globe Spots Top Countries to Visit in 2013 list, ranking eighth. The site stated that Ukraine “has been brought to the forefront of the tourism world. The days of visas and police bribery are a thing of the past.”

Secretary general for the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), Taleb Rifai, said that “Ukraine's growing popularity is also due to the advancement of tourists' urge for independent travelling and, hence, authentic and unique experience.”
