Vinnytsia: Crossing the border into western Ukraine
After some playful banter with the border guards, we snap some photos and board the bus to Vinnytsia in western Ukraine.
Vinnytsia, population 375,000, feels like a metropolis after the quaint towns of northern Moldova and although heavily fatigued after the 6-hour trip, we replenish ourselves with some succulent Georgian cuisine at Tiflis restaurant and prepare for the Sunday evening ahead of us. We can a stroll around the city centre, which features the Roshen fountain – Europe’s largest floating fountain. The city is built on the Southern Bug river which flows southwards before entering the Black Sea near to Kherson in southern Ukraine.
