Ukraine became an independent state in 1991 with the dissolution of the USSR. It is home to forty six million people. The geographical terrain of the country consists mostly of plateaus and rivers with the Carpathian and Crimean being its only mountains. Ukraine has many natural resources such as iron ore, coal, natural gas, oil, salt, and graphite. It is one of the largest refiners of metallurgical products in Eastern Europe. Ukraine has many customs one of which is Pysanka or Easter Eggs which are patterned with wax then dyed. After the wax is removed the pattern in the dye remains. This tradition is thousands of years old and a museum of Pysanka is situated in the city of Kolomya in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. The modern Ukraine is popular with tourists; more than twenty million foreign nationals visit annually. There is plenty to do in the country from hiking and fishing in the Carpathian Mountains, to relaxing on the Black Sea coast, and traversing the many vineyards. The selection of fridge magnets in the catalogues of World Wide Gifts captures the essence of the diverse country of Ukraine.

The Geography, Culture, And People Of Ukraine Are Depicted On A Selection Of Attractive Resin Fridge Magnets

Our selection of attractive resin fridge magnets from Ukraine captures the country perfectly. They include depictions of the Carpathian Mountains. These mountains create an arc approximately nine hundred and thirty two miles long across Central and Eastern Europe. They are generally thought of as being split into three parts Eastern, Central and Western. Ukraine contains part of the Central Carpathians. Also captured on these fridge magnets is the city of Kiev.

The Ukrainian capital is home to approaching three million people and is a centre for industry, education, and culture. Its residents are witness to a real mix of the old and new in the city; seventy per cent of buildings built between 1907 and 1914 have been preserved. Equally several high tech industries have their base in the city and the transport system is modern and efficient. This system consists of a funicular, metro, buses, and trolleybuses. It is also used by the tourists whose numbers have increased since the adoption of a visa free system for European Union member states and Switzerland in 2005.
