Ukrainian Wooden Dolls

The Ukraine has not made it yet as a shopping destination and most tourists generally only look for little gifts and souvenirs on their Ukraine holidays. That is not to say that there are no shops in the Ukraine. On the contrary, huge shopping malls and centres have popped up in Kiev and in Odessa, the Riviera Shopping City is the size of 12 football fields.
