Introducing Vinnytsya

Straddling a kink in the River Pivdenny Buh, Vinnytsya is another perfectly pleasant city that one would never expect to find hidden amid central Ukraine's endless wheat, sunflower and sugar-beet fields. It famously plays host to the embalmed body of a renowned Russian doctor and to one of Hitler's bunkers, but its true appeal lies in its centre, where several churches, a park and a pleasant pedestrian street compete for the attention of travellers. Vinnytsya is also a convenient jumping-off point for some interesting excursions in southern Podillya.

The city has a snazzy website in English, www.vinnytsatourism.com.ua, with loads of practical information, though some sections are slightly out of date.
