The Dnieper is the fourth longest river in Europe. Half of the Dnieper (about 700 miles) borders or passes through Ukrainian territory, and the river is for the Ukrainians the same kind of national symbol that the Volga River is for the Russians.

The Dnieper is the third largest river in Europe, flowing 1,370 miles from the heart of the Ukraine to the Black Sea. Half of the Dnieper borders or passes through Ukrainian territory, and to the Ukrainians, the river is the same kind of national symbol that the Volga River is for the Russians. Navigable for just 10 months of the year when it is not frozen, the waterways of Ukraine are among the most peaceful in the world.

The Dnieper River is filled with historical attractions. A cruise through Ukraine shows how the Ukranians have tried to separate themselves from various aspects of Russian culture and tradition. The Ukraine’s vibrant capital, Kiev, is the starting point for most Dnieper River cruises. Visit the Monastery of the Caves, a religious complex built in the mid 11th century above an underground network of tunnels and caves excavated by monks. One of the oldest cities in Europe, Kiev has a rich history and the famous Golden Gate in the city's ancient walls.

Most Dnieper River cruises also sail to Yalta on the Crimean Peninsula where you can visit botanical gardens and tour the Tsar's Imperial winery at Massandra and the White Palace, which was built as a summer residence for the Russian Tsars. Explore the renowned and elegant city of Odessa, with its landscaped parks and terraced hills. See the rows of baroque scupltures that line the Pasazh Shopping Mall, visit the ornate Cathedral of the Assumption, and the famous Potemkin Steps.

A Dnieper River cruise is a great way to immerse yourself in the fascinating history and culture of Ukraine.
