Lavender Fields in Poltava Region: 7 Places Worth Visiting War is not everywhere 11 Jul 2023 at 19:00

Previously associated with France, lavender fields have gained tremendous popularity throughout Ukraine in recent years, and Poltava region is no exception.
The name of the plant derives from the Latin word 'LAVA,' meaning 'to wash,' reflecting the ancient use of lavender by the Romans and Greeks for laundry and bathing purposes.
Today, lavender not only thrives in gardens for its beauty but is also cultivated on fields as a valuable essential oil crop on an industrial scale.
Typically, lavender fields attract passionate romantics, dreamers, creative individuals, and tourists who adore the flower's bloom. Another reason for the lavender fields' immense popularity is their photogenic appeal, making them a favorite location for photoshoots.
