COSSACK REVIVAL - A CRUISE ON THE MIGHTY DNEIPER RIVER FROM KIEV TO THE LAND OF THE COSSACKS, ODESSA, THE BLACK SEA AND THE DANUBE DELTA

Saturday 15 June 2019

The trip will start with a flight out of Birmingham via Istanbul to Kiev to join the Voyages Jules Verne cruise on the MS Dneiper Princess on Satuurday 15 June and returning to Birmingham via istanbul on Monday 24 June.

We will visit Ukraine, home of the Cossacks, where you will receive a warm welcome. Explore impressive Kiev, once the centre of the mighty Eastern Slavic state of Kyivan Rus with a rich collection of museums and golden-domed cathedrals. The river Dnieper is relatively unexplored by cruises but is an important transport link from the Black Sea to Kiev. Rising near Smolensk in Russia it flows for 2,200 kilometres to its delta at Kherson. From Kiev enjoy the panorama of gentle, rolling hills and the plains of rural Ukraine interspersed by the domes of village churches. The vibrant Black Sea city of Odessa, was founded in 1794 by Catherine the Great and boasts one of Europe’s most beautiful opera houses. The famous and impressive Potemkin Steps spill 500 feet down from Primorsky Boulevard to the sea. At the Black Sea, the waters of the ‘Blue Danube’ form the largest and best preserved of Europe’s deltas, a UNESCO natural heritage site famous for its birdlife.
