Last update: April 2014 (massive update and expansion of article) Ukrainian women have been sought for as wives and lovers for centuries, and today they continue to be prominent in the international marriage and dating industry.
Many foreign men come to Ukraine in the hopes of finding the true love (or quick thrill) they couldn't find at home.
Compared to women from many eastern countries, Ukrainian women also have certain advantages: Other than Ukraine, the author has also visited a number of other countries (Slovakia, Poland, and Russia) where people also claim that their women are "the prettiest in the world." In these countries, foreigners are often asked with a wink what they think of the local women.
Visitors to Ukraine often note what seems to be a larger numbers of stunningly attractive women than in their home countries.
At some point many visitors to Ukraine will take a weekend stroll through the historic center of Kiev in warm weather and end up on Khreschatyk Street, which is closed off to automobile traffic on the weekends.
If you're a man, you are likely to be blown away by the number of beautiful women nonchalantly displaying their scantily clad bodies.
There are several factors that contribute to this impression To get a more well-rounded picture of Ukrainian women after being dazzled by the beauty on display on Khreschatyk Street in summer, try spending some time on minibuses in outlying neighborhoods of the city in colder months of the year.You will find that obesity is rampant among women who have had children (and among men over 30) and that most women are in the "plain" category.
