Ukraine has a unique Christian history. It has been an official Christian country since 988. Before that it was Perun worshiping with Slavic mythical folklore. Now the many pre Christian festivals have been turned into Christian religious festivals. Over the next few blogs we’ll write about the major religious holy days. It’s a magical mix of old and new worship. If you want to see more of this culture and experience these holy days for yourself go to our tour company Experience Ukraine Tours www.experienceukraine.com.ua Our tour guides are Christians and interested in explaining the unique meaning and symbolism of these christian holidays. You will participate in them if you wish. The highlight is our Winter Christmas in Ukraine Tour. It’s magical. But another major one is the Easter festival , with brightly decorated eggs and baskets for priest blessing at the church containing ingredients for the holy supper. “Sviat Vechera”.
