Special traveller updates. This edition was published in May 2014. Due to the dramatic changes that have taken place in Ukraine since this book was sent to the printer (the Euromaidan protests and the annexation of Crimea), we have produced a special update for travellers, as an addendum for the guidebook. You can download it here.

Coverage includes: Planning chapters, Kyiv, Central Ukraine, Lviv, Western Ukraine, The Carpathians, Odesa, Southern Ukraine, Crimea, Eastern Ukraine, Understand and Survival chapters.
