Ukraine And Crimea With Insight Vacations

Travel in Style with this Brand New Eastern Europe Vacation

October 2011

Rye, NY: Ukraine gained independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and remains one of the last genuine travel frontiers of Europe. At its heart is the awe-inspiring capital of Kiev, with the autonomous republic of Crimea on its striking southern shores. The Ukraine and Crimea lie slightly off the beaten track of European travel, so Insight uses a mixture of flights and coach transport to keep the pace easy going. Although this area is still relatively undiscovered by Western travelers, rest assured that Insight’s local expertise will smooth your way.
