The Monument to Lipovans

A small town of Vilkovo was founded in 1746 by Lipovans, the descendants of the Old Rite followers. Vilkovo is quite a peculiar town, hidden in the reeds on the flood land, with the streets – channels and boats instead of cars.

Dear Ukraine Tours:

I was so pleased when I used you in 2003 that I decided to take advantage of your help again this year. Once again, you surpassed yourselves.

Previously, I took advantage of “The Best of the Ukraine”. This time, I picked out the places (Uzhhorod, Lviv, Chernivtsi, Ivano-Frankovsk, and of course Kiev) that I wanted to visit. Irina and I corresponded for nearly two months. The emails added up to c 50 A4 pages!

Picking out the hotels was easy. Arranging train connections proved to be more challenging. Irina outdid herself when she arranged a ticket to Chisinau, Moldova which was my next stop.

The Ukraine was my lynchpin for my seven weeks of holiday. If Ukraine Tours did not fulfil what I expected them to do, I would have had to start planning again.

Thankfully, they are truly professional in every sense of the word.
