Ukraine - Odesa & Southern Ukraine (Chapter)
This is the Odesa & Southern Ukraine chapter from Lonely Planet’s Ukraine guidebook.
Odesa is Ukraine’s most multicultural city, as well as the self-declared Ukrainian capital of both hedonism and humour. Tearing yourself away from Odesa’s energy and attitude, the south is also home to three major river estuaries, the most spectacular being the Danube Delta, a birdwatcher’s paradise.
- join the tanning and party fest on Odesa’s beaches
- spot zebra and bison on safari at the Askaniya Nova Reserve
- restaurants & accommodation
- make an ascent of the Potemkin Steps - setting for one of the film’s most famous scenes
Coverage includes: Odesa & around, Mykolayiv, Kherson, Askaniya Nova, Southern Bessarabia, Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky, Vylkovo and Izmayil.
