Ukraine and Great Britain

Both Ukraine and Great Britain lie in Europe, but Ukraine is situated on the European continent and Great Britain is separated from the continent by the English Channel.

In fact Britain is a sea country. It lies on the crossways of the sea routes different parts of the world. Great Britain is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean in the north-west, by the North sea in the east, and by the Irish sea in the west.

Ukraine is a landlocked country. The major water bodies bordering it are the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov in the south. It lies on the crossways of the land route from the east to the west and from the north to the south.

Ukraine is larger than Great Britain. The area of Great Britain is 24, 500 sq. km, and the area of Ukraine is 603, 700 sq km.

In both countries there are a lot of mountains. In Great Britain there are the Pennines and the Cambrian mountains. In Ukraine we have got the Carpathians and the Crimean Mountains.

There are a lot of rivers in both countries. In Great Britain they are not very long and deep. The Thames is wide and deep enough for large ships in this country. / The Severn

The largest rivers in Ukraine are the Dnieper, the Dniester, and the Southern Bugh. The Dnieper is navigated by large ships.

The climate of Ukraine is temperately continental, being subtropical only on the southern coast of Crimea. The climate of Great Britain is damp and mild because of ocean breezes.

There are many holidays in Ukraine. They are - the New Year's Day, Christmas, All women's day, Easter, the Independence Day, the Victory Day and others.

There are many holidays in Great Britain, too. They are - Christmas, the New Year's Day, Easter, St. Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Halloween an others.

THE MAP OF UKRAINE

The cloudless blue sky and the golden wheat fields lent their colours to the National Flag of Ukraine. The Trident, this ancient symbol of strength and love of freedom, made up the foundation of its State Emblem.  These national attributes embody the centuries of struggle of this long-suffering land for freedom, sovereignty and independence.

Ukraine’s heavy industries, such as this automobile assembly plant in Zaporizhzhya, dominate the manufacturing sector. Light industries producing consumer goods are underdeveloped.

A number of major river systems traverse Ukraine’s mostly flat and treeless terrain. These waterways provide the country with important energy and irrigation resources. The unusual landscape seen here was sculpted by the builders of a hydroelectric facility that was cancelled in mid-construction.

The Chernobyl’ nuclear power complex in northern Ukraine, the site of the world’s worst nuclear accident in 1986, continues to pose a hazard to the environment. A cement-and-steel sarcophagus, centre, was hastily constructed to contain the radioactive debris of reactor No. 4. The enclosure was never hermetically sealed, and its long-term effectiveness is in doubt.

Kyiv is situated on hilly terrain overlooking the Dnieper River in northern Ukraine. Since medieval times Kyiv has been an important commercial, religious, and cultural centre. The city suffered extensive damage during World War II (1939-1945), and since then much of it has been rebuilt in this modern style.

Ukrainian musical culture has its roots in ancient Slavic music. As a result, most Ukrainian music and dance is associated with the folk calendar, harvest, and life-cycle events. Many life-cycle songs, especially wedding songs, are based on dance rhythms. This example of a dance tune called “Arcan: The Lasso” is in a lively duple meter that is gradually speeded up. It features a traditional folk ensemble performing on violin, tsimbaly (Hungarian hammered dulcimer), various plucked lutes (kobza, bandura, torban), and bagpipe

This Christian mural decorates the walls of Kyiv’s Cathedral of Saint Sophia. The oldest cathedral in Ukraine, it was constructed in the 11th century, then mostly rebuilt in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. It is noted for the many frescoes and mosaics gracing its walls.

THE MAP OF UK

 

The Tower of London, located on the northern bank of the Thames River, was built about 1078. It was used alternately as a fortress, royal residence, and state prison in its early years. Today, it is maintained as an arsenal with a garrison, and is open to the public. The well-preserved Norman and medieval structures cover nearly 7.2 hectares (18 acres).

The Thames River in London is the most important river in England and the main source of London’s water supply.

William Shakespeare, who wrote during the late 1500s and early 1600s in England, is generally considered the greatest dramatist in human history and the supreme poet of the English language.

Saint Paul’s Cathedral, a major landmark in London, s one of British architect Sir Christopher Wren’s greatest achievements.

Buckingham Palace in Westminster is the official London residence of the British sovereign.

Buckingham Palace in London has been the official town residence of the British monarch since 1837. These Buckingham Palace guards undergo inspection while on duty outside the residence of Queen Elizabeth.

The city of London is the capital of the United Kingdom and the seat of government. Parliament, seen here, consists of the House of Lords and the House of Commons.
