Kiev What to Pack: 21 reviews and 22 photos

  Two excellent Kiev and Ukraine guides
by Bobek

Miscellaneous: Regarding good guide books about Kiev or Ukraine I have two recommendations.

Scheer and Schmidt: Die Ukraine entdecken
Trescher Verlag, Berlin
ISBN 3-928409-68-9

For Engish speaking tourists I strongly recommend another one. It is available in ENGLISH or in GERMAN and has obviously been produced with absolute commitment and affinity for the detail. This second lovely book has everything you ever wished to find: many detailed maps, lots of photos and illustrations, comprehensive texts about history, food, sightseeing, accommodation, entertainment and so on. It is excellently designed, of superb paper and printing quality and in consequence absolutely well done. Yet the highlight is that the publisher is a company from Kiev. So buying this book will also contribute a bit to the prosperity of this amazing city.

The book has been published by Baltia Druk, Kiev and is 7 EUROs (plus shipment). It can be ordered directly from baltija@ukr.net.
