Uncover information about Ukraine with @UkraineWOW

Ukraine WOW is a trip around Ukraine filled with history, passion, and diversity. You can now embark on a recorded guided tour (in Ukrainian) that lasts about an hour, or focus on learning about what you find most intriguing with a list of themes and facts (in English).

Virtual Tour with @NationalChernobylMuseum
There are so many details to learn about the events of Chornobyl. Tours to the exclusion zone, documentaries, and museums all tell the heart-wrenching story of the tragedy with different personal touches. The tragic event is worth learning about through a variety of mediums. If you missed out on a visit to the National Chornobyl Museum, you can take a virtual tour on their website. It is not the most advanced tour, but it gives you an idea of all the lives affected, as seen by copious pictures of Ukrainians lining the walls in the halls. If nothing else, the visuals and sounds in this tour will motivate you to put this museum on your “places to visit when quarantine is over” list.
All you have left to decide is where to begin!
