  Kyiv Top 10
by om_212

Favorite thing: the major discovery of the past weekend was finding locally produced, high-quality guidebooks on Kyiv.

Kyiv Top 10 - a 70-page illustrated guidebook, full of pictures and stories on the city’s most prominent places. Besides Ukrainian and Russian, it's available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Polish. Online price: 30 Hr ($6)

Touring Kyiv - a detailed 224-page guidebook on the sight-seeing places, with maps. Includes a lot of useful information, including places to go out and accommodation tips. It also contains basic language survival guide. Available in English and German. Online price: 60 Hr ($12)

you can buy them in bookstores across the town (the most centrally located are: Znannya, on 14 Khreshchatyk or Naukova Dumka, 4, Hrushevsky St.) or you can order them through the company's online shop (will save about 50% of the retail price).

Baltia guidebooks

the company also has guidebooks on other cities including Lviv (English, German, Polish, Russian); Crimea (English, German, Russian); Transcarpatia (English, Russian); Odesa (English, Russian)

p.s. unfortunately, the prices are steadely going up for everything, including books. the current(May 2008) price is 96 HR. but it's still cheaper than to buy in stores.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
