RussiaÃ¢Â‚¬Â„¢s shadow still looms over present-day Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova, though each has begun to find its own path after breaking with the Soviet Union. Often overlooked by travellers, these lands boast distinct cultures, complex and fascinating histories, unspoiled landscapes and warm hospitality. Experience Minsk's easy charm and the UNESCO listed Mir Castle in Belarus. Explore the contrasting historic cities of Lviv and Kiev and the controversial Chernobyl in Ukraine. Finally sample Moldova's finest wines and discover the break-away Soviet sub-state of Transnistria in Moldova.
