Cherkasy is known to those within Ukraine and to those from outside the country with an interest in the area, as the economic centre of the country. Recognised as a region - or “oblast”, in Ukrainian - since the 13th century, it has major cultural significance for people both in and around the region, as well as those from Ukraine in general.

Located on the banks of the Dnepr River, Cherkasy is important not just because of the things you can see and do here, but also because of its position as a staging post between major cities, and the Odessa-Moscow Railway Line. It’s 200 miles (321.9 km) south of the capital, Kyiv, which may be part of the reason why its climate is rather temperate, by Ukrainian standards.

Visitors to the area will find a range of accommodation to suit both their pockets and their needs. In fact, anyone visiting from the west will find that the cost of accommodation is markedly less than it would be for the same quality of lodging, in a city such as London or Paris. All the accommodations listed below are within easy reach of Cherkasy city centre, where you can enjoy the thriving nightlife, exciting culture, or just the beauty of one of Ukraine’s greenest cities.

1. Relaxing and woodsy: The Ukraina Hotel (from USD 33)

Anyone looking for a quiet getaway will feel like they’ve hit the jackpot when they book into the Ukraina. Deep in the woods, outside Cherkasy itself, this is a charming hotel, renowned for the friendliness of its staff and its airy interior. The rooms are spacious and offer flat-screen TVs as well as free WiFi - making it a great option for business and leisure visitors, alike.

You could just as easily be in Scandinavia, but stay a night and you’ll be glad you’re in Cherkasy!
