The Ukrainian nation spans a thousand years of history. Being rich in vast lands from mountains to the seaside, this country is endowed with breathtaking landscapes and the splendour of nature. Spectacular landscapes of Anatoly Kryvolap reflect the quiet moment of being in your native land, as if catching a motif of a song that lies deep in the consciousness of everyone born here.
