Ukrainian Crafts: Petrykivka Painting
Originating in the village of Petrykivka in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, the Petrykivka style of painting is one of Ukraine's unique and treasured forms of ornamental folk art which is still practiced around the country today. Characterized by the colorful flowers and lush foliage found in the area, Petrykivka is used to decorate a wide variety of items, both practical and decorative. The founding of the village of Petrykivka dates back to the late-18th century and people living there decorated the exterior and interior of their homes, as well as the items in them, extensively with the form of painting that came to be known as Petrykivka or Petrikov. Walls, stoves, furniture, plates, kitchen utensils, musical instruments and other items would become skillfully crafted works of art.

Historical Reminders of the Scythians in Ukraine
Thousands of burial mounds across the southern steppes of Ukraine remain as a reminder of the historical presence of the Scythians, a semi-nomadic equestrian tribe who occupied the area between the 7th century BC and the 4th century AD. Scholars are of the opinion that the Scythians, who were of Iranian descent and spoke an Iranian dialect, started moving into the region in the late 8th century BC after being ousted from Central Asia. The Scythians drove off the Cimmerians who had been occupying the steppes, some of whom settled on the Black Sea coastline, with others waging a successful campaign to occupy Sardis in Lydia, part of the territory then known as Asia Minor.

Visiting Villages in the Heart of Ukraine
On the road between Kiev and Poltava, through an area affectionately referred to as the 'Heart of Ukraine', travelers will come across a number of villages overflowing with history and culture. Located alongside the Sula River near Lubny, the Ukrainian Baroque-style Mharsky Monastery is an interesting attraction dating back to 1619 in the village of Mhar. The monastery features five domes - one central larger dome surrounded by four smaller domes - as well as a free-standing neoclassical bell tower that was built more than a hundred years after the original building was completed. The monastery suffered some damage in the early to mid-1900s and was used for non-religious purposes for a time, but was restored to the monks at the end of the 20th century.
