Most beautiful women in the world?
Ukrainian women are, without a doubt, some of the most beautiful women in the world. In order to understand why, it is important to briefly become familiar with Ukraine’s history.
Ukraine’s strategic geographical location has led to influences from the Byzantine Empire, Mongol Dynasty, and Russians resulting in a diverse group of people and appearances. In more modern terms we see the Eastern part of the country often aligning with more Pro-Russian beliefs, while the Western portion typically feels more connected to their neighboring Central Europeans. The result is a group of women who not only look and dress differently, but also think, feel, and act differently. Add in social media, some of the fastest high speed internet found anywhere, and events like the 2012 European Football Championships and you have women connecting with even more cultures which adds further diversity to an already diverse group of interesting people.

With so much diversity and a rapidly changing landscape since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, it’s important to not only understand what she’s thinking, but where her thoughts are being sculpted. Visitors to Ukraine are often taken aback by the the directness of communication. After an initial adjustment period it quickly becomes refreshing in comparison to the politically correct way of exchanging thoughts in which a manner many parts of the world have become accustomed. The women are often more than happy to share their opinions on a number of topics and you can quickly learn what positions they support. Sometimes it is as simple as what is often stereotyped as East vs. West, but often there are other intricacies involved. Maybe they despise the lifestyle in which they were raised and wish for nothing more than a complete 180 degree turn of direction. Maybe the are fond of their beliefs and wish nothing less than the encroachment of other ways of life. Regardless, the conversations are often fascinating, spirited, and highly enjoyable.

Many of the readers of this article will undoubtedly be Americans. The United States, as it exists and is thought of today, was founded by immigrants.

Fashion, nearly by definition, involves changing trends and consumer tastes. Some original, some manufactured. One thing that never goes out of style is classic beauty.

World Famous Femininity
Throughout my travels I’ve noticed two topics where men very much enjoy a spirited debate. Sports and women. In regards to the latter there are personal preferences for hair color, body type, and other physical attributes, but there is one universally debated question in regards to women. Which country has the most beautiful women? Japan, Russia, and Brazil nearly always receive a quick mention, but there is one country that often rises above the rest. Ukraine. I’ve spent time in Ukraine each of the last four summers. You can pick out the men on their first, and sometimes second, visits. They appear awestruck at the beauty of the local women. While it is up for debate that Ukraine is the absolute best country for beautiful women, I think there is little question they are a finalist for such a distinction.
