Most Helpful Customer Reviews
There are too many areas of the country that are inadequately covered. It really isn't much of a guide book at all. After visiting the western part of the country, I found that there was either very limited mention of most of the sites we visited (and wanted more information on) or none at all. The maps are totally inadequate. The bit of Ukrainian language was helpful, though, for very few people speak English, except at the better hotels. I was disappointed in the book and wish I would have chosen something else.
I had bought the book version and then left it at home so had to download the kindle version. BIG disappointment. Only a couple of hotels, a few eating places and a few places to visit. Maps were few and pretty hopeless and I found the whole version difficult to use. To me, a waste of money.
This book ought to be required reading for anyone venturing beyond Eastern Europe. Detailed, yet understandable. All kinds of information regarding eating, sleeping, travelling, etc, are easily digested. A serious tome for the serious traveller, intent on getting the most out of their magical trip to Ukraine.
