It neighbours with 7 states - Belarus at north, Poland at northwest and west, Slovakia and Hungary - at west, Romania and Moldova at southwest, and Russia to east and northeast. The south and southeast of Ukraine is washed by two seas - Black and Azov.

Climate, relief, natural conditions of Ukraine. 
Ukraine is located mostly in the moderate climatic zone, except for southern coast of Crimea, which is in the subtropical zone. The southern part of Ukraine lays at the same latitude as the northern part of Italy.
In general,  the climatic conditions and soils of Ukraine are favourable for agriculture. Flora of Ukraine embraces about thirty thousand plants. It creates favourable conditions for beekeeping.. 
Relief of Ukraine is mostly flat. Only in the west there are ridges of the Ukrainian Carpathian mountains and in the south - the Crimean mountains. The highest altitude in Ukraine is mountain Goverla (2061 meters) in the Carpathians. The maximum altitude at the Crimean's is the Roman-kosh (1545 meters). 
The biggest river of Ukraine is Dnieper. Danube, Dnister, Siverskyi Donets are  important water arteries. There are plenty of small rivers in Ukraine, which makes Ukrainian landscape especially picturesque.

Historical information. 
Beekeeping in Ukraine has centuries-old history. Foreigners, which visited Ukraine, were always surprised by "huge quantities of bees and honey" in this land. This was an outcome of the combination of the favourable natural conditions with diligence and keen perception of our ancestors. In the period of Kiev Rus' the honey and wax were among the basic products of trade. 
The Ukrainian researchers have made a significant contribution to the development of beekeeping. One of them - Petro Prokopovych (1775-1850) - was the world's first inventor of the frame beehive. He organized a school of beekeeping - the first in Ukraine.

Modern Ukraine is among the world's top -10 producers of honey and other products of beekeeping. 500 thousand beekeepers collect up to 70 thousand tons of honey annually.
