EXCURSION: The famous Zaporozhye Cossack Show.
In the 15th and 16th Centuries, the free lands of the Dnieper
became a place of refuge for the serfs fleeing from feudal oppression
in the central regions of Russia. These people called themselves
Cossacks ("free people"). Henceforth, the island of Khortitsa which
lies beyond the rapids on the Dnieper became the center of the
Zaporozhye Cossacks. Since the 18th Century, the Cossacks were given
special military privileges by the Tsars which allowed them the right
of ownership over the border lands in exchange for the obligation to
guard the borders. A 20-minute bus ride from Zaporozhye, will take you
to an exiting outdoor performance of Cossack horse riding, fighting,
firearm, sword and whip handling, as well as songs and dances. After
the show, the traditional "Kulish" (a kind of goulash cooked in

Sights & Stops:
The Ukrainian capital’s broad avenues lined with chestnut trees are
steeped in history. When the streets of Paris were still dirt paths,
Kiev had the Golden Gates, paved roads and an amazing rate of literacy
among both men and women. St. Sophia’s Cathedral echoes the past glory
of Byzantium, while the Pecherskaya Lavra (Cave Monastery) recalls the
deep asceticism of early Christianity.
The most elegant resort on the “Crimean Riviera,” Yalta is stunningly
situated between the Crimean Mountains and the Black Sea. Dramatic
cliffs overlook azure water, and the air is so fresh it seems alive.
The Russian Imperial family loved relaxing in Yalta’s lush setting, so
Czar Nicholas II created the sparkling white Livadia Palace for them.
Livadia was later the site of the historic Yalta Conference attended
by Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt.
Rich in history, Sevastopol has been inhabited since the 8th century
BC. Yet for 70 years, it was closed to outsiders. You will be among
the few Americans to see this gracious city, best known as the site of
a fateful siege during the Crimean War. Today, Sevastopol is home to
the powerful Black Sea Fleet.
Zaporozhye is the birthplace of the legendary Ukrainian Cossacks, the
mighty warriors who defended the empire’s borders. In ancient times,
Zaporozhye was a well-known stop along the Great Dnieper Way, part of
the trade route from Constantinople to the Baltic. Here you will be
treated to an exuberant display of Cossack horsemanship and swordplay,
as well as the expansive hospitality of a traditional Cossack feast.
National music, local wines and Cossack vodka are all part of this
Mediterranean climate and a picturesque setting on the Black Sea have
drawn the rich and famous to Odessa for centuries. The city’s most
famous mayor, the French Duc de Richelieu, transformed Odessa into a
thriving center of commerce and culture. To this day Odessa remains a
cosmopolitan city with a world-famous opera house and a bustling port.
Tree-lined promenades and classical buildings painted in pastel hues
evoke another age.
Kremencug is an important industrial city of half a million
inhabitants. From here we tour inland to visit a local farm.
Kherson: Kherson was originally built by the Russians as a
garrison for the Cossacks, the fierce warriors who defended the
Russian Empire’s southern border against the marauding Tatars and
Turks. Today, Kherson is the stepping off point for exploring the
Dnieper delta, with its bountiful fowl, fauna, and wildlife.
Founded in the 11th century during the reign of Prince Yaroslavl, Kanev has been ruled by Tatars, Lithuanians, Poles, Turks and
Russians. Kanev is proud of its favorite son, the writer and artist
Taras Shevchenko, who is buried here. You will have the opportunity to
visit the museum dedicated to this Ukrainian hero.
