Ukraine Cruise Deals
Despite its political problems and the current alert by the UK government against travelling to eastern Ukraine, this is still a country that rewards the visitor many times over and a fascinating European destination. Odessa is Ukraine’s largest sea port, an elegant city with an architectural style ranging between the classical and Baroque to Art Nouveau, with a smattering of onion domes and modernism. One of the city’s most visited attractions is the Potemkin Steps, leading from the port up to Primorsky Boulevard. Arriving in Yalta, you will immediately be struck by the beauty of its setting: a lovely white city built around the curve of its bay. Right next to the cruise terminal, the mile-long promenade offers an interesting range of shops, cafés and restaurants. Yalta was a playground for Russia’s aristocracy since the late 18th century.
