Premier Viktor Yushchenko

In politics
there are
figures who
are symbolic,
whose
appearance
is a logical
result of the development
of society.
It seems that
the turn
of the century
in Ukraine
has been
marked by
the appearance
of such
a person —
new Prime
Minister Viktor Yushchenko.

     

Holy Wisdom Church

Hagia Sophia,
the Church
of Holy
Wisdom in Constantinople,
is an amazing architectural landmark.
The daring
and innovative
design was developed
by famous
architects
and scholars.
Five hundred
years later,
Yaroslav
the Wise, ruler
of Kyivan Rus,
had his own
Hagia Sophia
built in his
capital, Kyiv.

     

Malanka Fete

Malanka,
the fete of
January 13,
is often
referred
to as the Eve
of Bounteous
Gifts,
Shchedrivka (“Generous
Time”),
Old New Year.
In different
parts of
Ukraine
traditions
of Malanka celebrations
differ slightly,
but it still
remains a day
of public
enjoyment, entertainment
and lavish merrymaking.

     

Silver Magic

The Museum
of Historical Treasures
of Ukraine
possesses
an excellent collection
of European
jewellery
of superb
artistic quality.
The collection
is made up
of art objects
that were
created
in Germany,
Austria,
France, the Netherlands
and Poland,
dating from
the 16th
through
20th centuries.
