The city of Cherkassy lies 190 Km to the south and east of Kyiv, and it sits on the banks of the Dnipro at one of the widest points of the river (as much as 12 Km wide in fact). If you’re thinking of heading somewhere new and interesting for the long weekend, this gem of a city is worthy of consideration. Boating might well be one of the things that you should consider putting on the agenda. Yachts are available for charter, with a cost of just 60 USD for two hours on the water for up to 8 people, that looks like quite the bargain to us. If you have a little more cash to spare, and want a truly special experience for up to 3 people, you can even take a 1 hour hot air balloon ride for 360 USD.
