Until recently, Ukraine was known as Little Russia and its inhabitants considered themselves Russians. Today many cruise experts predict Ukraine river cruises to be among the most popular routes in the nearest future. Now it is true to say that your voyage to Ukraine will offer a full spectrum of unforgettabel and unique travel experiences.
Ukraine was a state protected by the Russian Empire from Turkish and Polish invasions for almost three centuries before it earned its independence in 1991. Prior to the dissolution of the Soviet Union it was its own state, but only after the USSR ended did it become a fully recognized country apart from Russia.
Golden Ring Cruises provides an entire summer of opportunities for Ukraine river cruises. Enjoy a leisurely drift down, or cruise up, the Dnieper, a waterway that is inseparable with how Ukrainians see themselves. There is, after all, no better view into the soul of this country than a cruise on its waters. Of course, the real advantage of booking your cruise with Golden Ring is the ability to seamlessly transition your vacation from ship to shore with fantastic on-land extensions of your luxury Ukraine cruises to other former Soviet countries, especially Russia. After all, what more luxurious way is there to follow the road of the Varangians to the Baltic than by traveling to Moscow and catching a high-speed train to beautiful St. Petersburg? You will truly have plenty to tell after you return home.
