The architectural ensemble of the old city of Lviv is listed as a World Heritage by UNESCO. Lviv is located about 70 km from the Polish border and 469 km west of Kiev. Ukraine shares its borders with seven 7 countries: Poland, Slovakia and Hungary to the west, Romania and Moldova to the south-west, Russia to the east and the north-east, and Belarus to the north. The country measures 1,316 kilometers from east to west and 893 kilometers from north to south, covering a total area of 603,550 sq. km. This is a relatively flat country, with fertile land in the interior, creating favorable conditions for agriculture.

The most Ukrainians can speak russian fluently, in part because 17% of the population is Russian.
