Set on the banks of the Dnieper River, Ukraine's capital city, Kyiv, is a mix of centuries-old architecture, leafy boulevards and gilded domes. It is also one of the best places to try a variety of traditional Ukraine food. Delve into the city's underground shopping mall to pick up some hot corn on the cob (a local delicacy), or head to a Soviet-style canteen to try perepichka, a deep-fried hot dog. For a more substantial meal, choose varenyky dumplings stuffed with gooey cheese, juicy meats and fresh vegetables. And wash it all down with a chaser of nastoyanka liqueur - a sweet concoction of honey and herbs.
