Visit Soviet Ukraine!
Tourist document promoting tourism in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. Descriptive portrait of major cities and tourist attractions of the country: Kiev (Kyiv), Odessa, Yalta, Lvov, Chernovtsy (Chernivtsi), Vinnitsa (Vinnytsia), Uzhgorod (Uzhhorod), Kharkov (Kharkiv), Poltava, Cherkasy, Zaporozhia (Zaporijjia), Novaya Kakhovka (Nova Kakhovka), and Kherson. “Ukraine! It stretches for hundreds of thousands of kilometres, from the swift Tisza to the Donets with its abundant waters, from Pripet to the sunny shores of the Black Sea. Its large fertile plains are beautiful, the sub-Carpathian mountains, worthy rivals of the Swiss Alps. As for the Black Sea coast, its natural and climatic conditions put it on a par with the Mediterranean coast. The Republic of Ukraine covers an area of 601,000 km2. It has a population of more than 45 million people. Ukraine has a rich and secular history. Archaeological excavations prove that the Dnieper Valley and the Black Sea coast were inhabited at various times by Scythians, Sarmatians, Goths, Huns, Pechenegans, Polovts and Eastern Slavs. Monuments and chronicles of the past tell about the birth, development and decay of the Kievan state, which played a prominent role in the formation and history of the political structure of three brother peoples: Russians, Ukrainians and Belarusians.”
