Pelican City

Campsite in Southern Ukraine

Pelikan Tour runs a homey, 14-bed guesthouse on the banks of the Danube, a short walk from the city centre. The company has also built four comfortable timber cottages in a tranquil spot on the riverbank. The cottages have large glazed verandahs for bird spotting and to let the river views flood in.

You'll have to resist the urge to take up duck hunting when awakened by the loudly frolicking, nocturnal waterfowl in the small marina.
