Few weeks ago we've come back from a spontaneous trip trough the Western Part of Ukraine. After gathering together in the city centre after a beer or so , we decided that its enough to stay the whole summer in the city and decided to visit several of the most popular places in the western Ukraine, namely: Olesk, Zolochiv, Pidhirci Castles, also Fort in Tarakaniv village and a Pochaiv monastery. The Trip is budget, but those places are worth seeing!
