Beautiful Ukraine

Ukraine is full of proud culture and beauty, that the language is only a part of. Ukraine's Independence day was a few days ago, but the culture is one you can learn about anytime.

In Kyiv and other big cities, artists have been commissioned to make art on the sides of buildings. They greet you as you come into the city. It is truly awesome, very inspiring and beautiful:

Also, I found an interesting article on their motto "Слава Україна; героям слава!" (Glory to Ukraine; Glory to the heroes!)

A short History of the Ukrainian Greeting, "Slava Ukrayina!"

As the article says,

It’s important to note that this greeting was something more than just a slogan. It was [and still is] an expression of hope for a better future.

Слава Україна!

This mural is a portrait of Lesya Ukrainka, one of the best-known Ukrainian poets. It was created by an Australian artist Guido van Helten. It is one of my favorite murals too.

That one is probably my favorite of all that I have seen. So detailed and historical.
