Introducing Uman

All roads in Ukraine seem to pass through this central hub, home of relentlessly idyllic 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, the town can be visited as a long day trip from either city. Beyond the park and the tomb, this is one of many places in Ukraine where time seems to have stopped c 1985.
