Ukraine is the largest country on the continent, and was once know as the bread basket of Europe. The national drink is horilka, which translates to burning water, and the McDonalds in downtown Kiev is one of the busiest in the world.

In recent years, the amount and types of goods and services have increased, and facilities for travelers have improved. Nonetheless, the existence and quality of travel and tourist services remains uneven throughout the country, and it can still be difficult to find some of the goods and services commonly available in the United States.
