Why I Love the Ukraine?

My first visit in the Ukraine was about a few years ago. I was in Lviv. I have my favorite places there and I really like this city. But until my coming to Chernivtsi I couldn't say that I really like this country. Now I know - the Ukraine is amazing!

I like the Chernivtsi. People here are very friendly and hmm... with open heart – they are ready to share with you everything what they have (even though they do not have too much). I really like the little gardens, with the vegetables, flowers and fruit trees next to the housing in the middle of city center, small and crowded marshrutkas in which you can find pictures and calendars with orthodox saints; trolleybuses where from one site to the other site you give your money unknown people and they will give you back the rest and the ticket (no one takes dropped on the floor money – everyone knows that it was someone's property and the trolleybus staff deserves the most). The roads here are horrible, but no one cares. People aren't so stressed out like in Poland, for two weeks I saw maybe one person who was really busy I ran to the bus stop! Ice Cream packed like sausages look really funny...and they are tasty, I ate it today ;) 

The most exciting place is the market with fresh, cheap and delicious food! I like the fruits – very sweet, amazing sour cream, cheese and butter, which you can try before buying, the best in the world bread – warm and aromatic and honey (first time in my life I could try a few types of honey and choose one). This market is near a very beautiful – like the whole city (the main style of architecture is my favourite - secession) old Church Heart of Jesus . This church is in bad condition and they need money to renovate it. I hope during my visit in Chernivtsi I find time to help local people to get money for this aim.
