Bradt Travel Guides, Mar 15, 2010 - Travel - 440 pages

Ukraine is something of an enigma for the visitor. The largest country in Europe, it remains one of the least visited, yet it has retained the rustic beauty of old-world eastern Europe, and its place names are heavy with historical significance: Kiev, Crimea, Sevastopol, Odessa, Chernobyl.

This fully updated third edition of Bradt’s Ukraine guide keeps visitors up to speed with this rapidly evolving country. Covering everything from the best places for borsch to the best walks along the Black Sea – alongside an in-depth exploration of Ukraine’s history, culture and natural beauty – this is the most comprehensive and practical guide available to a destination as yet undiscovered by the tourist crowds.
