Ukraine - Central Ukraine (Chapter)
This is the Central Ukraine chapter from Lonely Planet’s Ukraine guidebook.
Ukraine's breadbasket heartlands are split between forested Polissya and the endless agricultural flatlands of Podillya. Bucolic outdoor pleasures, some decidedly quirky museums and the show-stopping fortress town of Kamyanets-Podilsky are the odd mix of highlights provided by this often overlooked region.
- set out on a misty-eyed amble around Uman’s painfully romantic Sofiyivka Park, voted one of the seven wonders of Ukraine
- get all spaced out at Zhytomyr’s Korolyov Cosmonaut Museum
- restaurants & accommodation
- watch devout Jewish pilgrims revere deceased Hasidic masters in Berdychiv, Uman, Bratslav and Medzhybizh
Coverage includes: Polissya, Zhytomyr, Berdychiv, Podillya, Uman, Vinnytsya & around, Khmelnytsky & Medzhybizh and Kamyanets-Podilsky.
