Книги издательства Bradt Publications
The new Bradt guide on Ukraine is a travel manual to read before, during, and after a trip. It features comprehensive practical information, while revealing the country's personality through in-depth exploration of its history, culture, and natural beauty. Comprehensive coverage of Kiev--the birthplace of Slavic civilization--is provided along with a region-by-region guide to the provinces, including the peninsula of the Crimea in its idyllic setting on the Black Sea. The beauty of traditional churches, monasteries, and sacred sites are in contrast to the notorious, but compelling, landmark of Chernobyl. The Ukraine can easily be explored by rail, river cruise, or sea ferry, and also on foot. Short walks and long-distance treks will help visitors take in the Carpathian and Crimean mountains, Danube and Dnestr deltas, forested trails, and above all, routes taking in rustic settlements of old-world Eastern Europe.
