There has never been a better time to travel to Ukraine with visas no longer necessary for most tourists. Visitors to the country will discover traditional churches, monasteries, and sacred sites providing a contrast to the notorious, but compelling, landmark of Chernobyl. Sites can easily be explored by rail, river cruise, or sea ferry, and also on foot--the ideal way to take in rustic villages of old-world eastern Europe. Features include: *Detailed coverage of new hotels and restaurants *A region-by-region guide to the provinces, including the stunning Crimean peninsula *Kiev--the birthplace of Slavic civilization--in fresh detail *Thorough language section in both Russian and Ukraine

In general it is a pretty good guide. The maps are not that good.
Also, the author incorrectly states that, in the Orthodox religion the people "pray to, and worship the Icons". This is not the case. Icons are venerated, but never worshiped, and are never "prayed to".
