Ukraine is the largest country in Europe. Evolving rapidly, the country offers visitors an unrivalled combination of old and new. Updated throughout, Ukraine highlights towns and villages well off the beaten track, and goes into greater depth than its competitors, with more detail on the history, culture and sights, and more entertaining reviews of hotels and restaurants. The practical information highlights how to get there by bus, rail and boat. The culture section features new writers of independent Ukraine and the history section has been updated to cover all the events that followed Yanukovych's election in 2010.

He is also the author of Iceland for which he won the 2008 Lowell Thomas Award. Massimiliano Di Pasquale first travelled to the Ukraine in 2004 and has been back to explore the country many times since. Photographer, writer and journalist, Massimiliano writes regularly about Ukrainian culture and politics for many Italian magazines and newspapers.

Pictures for a diary), and in May 2012 the travel book Ucraina terra di confine. Viaggi nell'Europa sconosciuta (Ukraine Borderland. Trips in unknown Europe).
