Sailing from Ukraine
Setting sail from Kiev
Ukraine's capital is one of the oldest cities in Eastern Europe, a place where beautifully ornate churches sit alongside brutalist Soviet towers. Highlights include the golden domes of St Sophia cathedral and the 11th-century Monastery of the Caves, both inscribed on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Kiev also has an important Jewish heritage, a hip restaurant and bar scene and some lively markets.
Scenic river cruising
The port of Kherson, founded in 1778 on the orders of Catherine the Great, lies at the point where the Dnieper river empties into the Black Sea. Highlights include the Italian-influenced St Catherine’s Cathedral, the bustling market and the Monument to the First Shipbuilders of the Black Sea Fleet.
Arriving in Odessa
Founded by Catherine the Great in 1794, the sunny port of Odessa has a rich and storied history as a cosmopolitan playground for Russian high society, reflected in the city's gloriously faded neoclassical architecture. Famous sights include the Potemkin Steps, so called after featuring in the classic 1925 film 'Battleship Potemkin'.
