The Small Canyon of the Crimea stretches along the Black River for 12 km. Full flowing river changes to quiet backwaters along the way. River ledges, rapids and waterfalls take turns with flood plains encasing small rocky islands and shadowy banks. Open spots on the banks are covered with old Crimean junipers, shadowy beech trees shelter green ferns. When sunny, the fast waters of the Black River splash over heated rubbles, with rainbows glittering over them. There are plenty of safe deep baths in the canyon, and the water in these “tubs” is warmer than in the Grand Canyon. Though beware of the flow, the Black River is the fastest in the Crimea. Summer warm months are good time for hiking in the canyon. Hikes without a guide are not safe in the Small Canyon due to abundance of various trails, some of which may appear to be either quite challenging or undoable.
Hello Irina!! I apologize for taking so long to write you with my thanks & gratitude for the most flawless, amazing, wonderful trip throughout Ukraine. I have told everyone how beautiful Ukraine is & how tourist friendly
complete with the hotel & restaurant infra-structure needed for a comfortable journey. But I mostly tell them about the best travel agency experience I have ever had from plans without a problem, to guides & drivers of high professional standards who were incredibly flexible & became our
friends, to you who always responded within days to any inquiry with details & patience plus, once we were in Ukraine, checked in with our progress daily to make sure your "American ladies" were well cared for. We were!!
We will never forget all the people that helped us with this family quest & travel adventure. Our guide in Lviv stayed up all night checking with friends about Jewish history in the area so she could add sites of interest to us in addition to all the other historical places. We learned about things together & we cried together when we left. That is the type of person who works with Unipress. But most especially you, Dima, Toly, & Eugene have a place in our hearts. Our invitation for any of you to visit us in America
is sincere. It would be a joy to spend time with any of you giving back just a little of what we received. Please say hello to them & send our good will the next time you see or speak to them.
I think you already know that we recommend you highly & will be glad to sing your earned praise to anyone who will listen. I hope all is going well for you.
