A travel guide to read before, during and after a trip to Ukraine, this book features comprehensive practical information, while revealing the country's personality through in-depth exploration of its history, culture and natural beauty. Traditional churches, monasteries and sacred sites provide a contrast to the notorious but compelling landmark of Chernobyl. Andrew Evans shows how Ukraine can easily be explored by rail, river cruise or sea ferry, and also on foot - the ideal way to take in the rustic villages of old-world Europe - with short walks and long-distance treks. The guide offers side trips into Moldova, Belarus and Eastern Europe, as well as a region-by-region guide to the Ukrainian provinces, including the stunning Crimean peninsula. It features detailed coverage of Kiev, the birthplace of Slavic civilization, and a cruising guide for Kiev, the Dnipr and the Black Sea. There is also a language section in Ukrainian and Russian.
Andrew Evans, postgraduate of Russian and East European Studies from Oxford University, spent two years living in Ukraine shortly after the country gained its independence. Since then, he has dedicated himself to the study of Ukrainian folk culture, music, dance, art, and religion. He travels back to Ukraine regularly and writes numerous articles. He was shortlisted in the Bradt-BBC Wildlife Travel Writing Competition of 2002.
