Enjoy the good life.
This country is resilient and mindfully artful in everything they do. One assumption may be, that this power comes from the Ukraine's history of oppression, war, and change. Like most great artists, great countries can be born from great despair.
Every restaurant, every plate, every street, every park tells a story. Ukrainian architecture dates back further than the 9th century which can be clearly seen in the day-to-day aspects of life in Kyiv and Kharkiv. From preserved Orthodox Christian churches on every cobblestone corner to Soviet erected government buildings lining the block... you can feel this country's cyclical history of prosperity, conflict, and new beginnings.
