This Eastern European country was greatly affected by the communism of Stalin, but has managed to keep some of its own cultural customs, such as traditional textiles and Eastern Slavic architecture. Its capital Kiev is the eighth-largest city in Europe and is the educational, scientific, and cultural hub of the country. Its coastal cities also have fantastic nightlife and lots of sporting and nature activities, and are popular vacation destinations. Many expats move to Ukraine to enjoy the mild climate and culture or to take on highly skilled work, and most find Ukrainian people to be very hospitable and welcoming. While the economy has seen a recent decline, the future overall looks promising for Ukraine with its growing IT industry and large universities, and unemployment has been decreasing. Expats who enjoy a challenge will enjoy living in Ukraine; many report that the culture and food is fantastic, that it is easy to make new friends, but that corruption and poor customer service can be an issue for expats looking to work in the country.
