All roads in Ukraine seem to pass through this central hub, home of relentlessly romantic Sofiyivka Park and the final resting place of the revered Hasidic Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav. Visiting Uman is a perfect way to break up the journey between Kyiv and Odesa. Or, in a pinch, Uman can be done as a long day trip from either city. Beyond the park and the tomb there’s not much happening here.
Nash Svit publishes a great city map, filled with information on the park. It’s available at Knyhy (vul Sadova 1; 9am-5pm Mon-Sat) in the town centre.
