Transcarpthia) taken in the spring of 1995.
Six Days in Ukraine [with fotos] ('96)
Since becoming independent in 1991, Ukraine has increasingly opened up to Western
travellers. While cumbersome visa requirements still have to be met, the rewards from a visit to
the region can be overwhelming. Lviv* on the one hand is a beautiful city in the heart of
Western Ukraine that might well vie with Prague in years to come as the jewel of Central
Europe. On the other hand, not overlooking the natural beauty of Zakarpattia
(Transcarpathia), Uzhhorod knocks firmly upon Central Europe's door asserting itself as the
crossroads to the East. Curious and hospitable, sleepy yet waking, Ukraine is one place that
should be upon any intrepid explorer's itinerary and was upon mine during late August 1996.
What follows below is an account of the experiences and impressions gained during a six day
journey that took me through Western Ukraine and those places mentioned above.
