50 Beautiful Pics Of Ukraine That Are Heartbreaking To See Right Now

Ukraine, a democracy of 44 million people, continues to  experience a devastating attack . As the world uneasily watches the 8th day of the Russian invasion,  people and nations are uniting  like never before, sending support and condemning this unjustified war.

Sitting in the heart of Europe, Ukraine celebrated its 30 years of independence last year. While it may seem like a young state, it has a thousand-year history. Throughout this period, it has formed a powerful and resilient nation. Citizens there developed a strong sense of national identity, showing devotion and love to its culture, traditions, architecture, communities, and beyond.

Today, brave defenders are fighting for the future of this country, and we want to showcase all of Ukraine’s unique beauty. That’s why  Bored Panda  scoured the internet and collected some of the most gorgeous and breathtaking pictures that capture what an incredible land it really is.

It's not necessary to comment, but if you feel as I do, i.e. that everyone should see some of the magnificent beauty that Putin has probably already destroyed, please vote this article up to keep it on the front page, at least half as long as that basketball game article has been kept on the front page, so everyone will get a chance to see it.

I've seen that train track or one very similar in a documentary, it's beautiful I just want to walk down those tracks I think I'd half expect to get swarmed by fairies. I also watched a documentary about Poland and they have a lot of art on their buildings like in the photo above some of it 3D.

I hate to think that any of that would be destroyed. Ukraine was a cultural and religious center as well as the breadbasket of Europe. One could argue, that in it's day the Ukraine was the most vital part of Russia.

I had hoped to go there one day and look into my grandmother's family and now I fear it is but a dream.

Even though my mother was born in Kiev (how it was spelled back then) I never had any desire to go there, and now having seen those photos, I'm sorry I never did.  I wasn't that far away when I was in Switzerland.

Actually, it's not THAT close.  I just checked a map and it's 1300 miles away.

That's by car but

The air travel (bird fly) shortest distance between Switzerland and Ukraine is 1,727 km= 1,073 miles.

If you travel with an airplane (which has average speed of 560 miles) from Switzerland to Ukraine, It takes 1.92 hours to arrive.  That's pretty close considering how far you traveled to get to Switzerland. That's a nice 2 hr nap.

I visited Ukraine via a river cruise several years ago, obviously did not get to see a lot, but it was beautiful. Pictures are indeed heartbreaking.
