Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova Fam takes you to areas of relatively unexplored Europe where breakaway republics, folklore heritage and resurgent cultural traditions are alive, well and free from the shadow of the Soviet-era.
Our tour starts with arrival in Minsk to explore the ancient Slavic country of Belarus, located in the geographic heart of Europe. Here we'll have a fairly in-depth exploration of the important historic and cultural cities including the marvelous capital Minsk and the cities of Vitebsk (where Chagall was born and lived) and Brest.
A drive from Brest takes us across the Ukraine border and into Lyiv. Located in south-eastern Europe, Ukraine is the second largest country of the continent after Russia, but one of the least-known. Here we enjoy the delights of L'viv, Kyiv and Odessa.
We arrive in Chisinau, capital of Moldova after a short pleasant drive from Odessa. Moldova is a very small country, north of the Balkans, surrounded by Romania to the southwest (across the Prut River) and Ukraine to the northeast.
During the tour of Moldova we enjoy a delightful exploration of Chisinau's historic, architectural and cultural sites. There will be day excursions to the surrounding villages where we can enjoy the beauty of the countryside, meet the local people and taste their fabulous wines!
