We'll see iconic monuments such as the Pechersk Lavra cave monastery, the Motherland Monument and the Peoples' Friendship Arch. Then we'll hover over the Mezhyhirya estate, where the former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych lived.

Afterwards, we'll soar over Chernobyl's exclusion zone and see its fascinating streets and buildings that seem to have frozen in time since the 1986 nuclear accident. In the ghost town of Pripyat, we'll see the Red Forest, the river port and the famous ferris wheel. It'll take your breath away.
