    This is what I call a wilder version of Venice. Principles are the same, there are houses, between them chanels instead of roads and bridges crossing them. Only here everything is much sipmler. Channels were dug out and soil was used for platforms where houses were built. Access is only possible on narrow wooden footbridge that spreads throughout the settlement. You have to be very carefull as it's unsteady on many places or there are huge holes. But it's a great experience as you can really see how people are living here be literally looking into their homes and gardens.

    Another way to explore Vylkove is to take an organized boat tour. You may try to arrange everything by yourself, or you can go to the tourist office (like we did) and let them make the arrangement. We (5 of us) paied 70 grivnas (some 12 euros) for good one hour ride. The ride goes through Vylkove and also further out across Danube branches. It's quite adventorous as some of the channels are verey narrow and overgrown and the boatman has to show some skills. Well, our Alyosha is still young, so couple of hits into the banks were to expect :-).
    Only, you can't expect any useful information unless you speak ukrainian, or your boatman speaks some foreign language. But just seeing this place, where time nearly stopped is enough.

    This is a typical Ukrainian church you see a lot around the country. I don't know anything about this one as it was closed due to re-constructions of the interior.
    The bright, turquoise facede makes the church stand out from the rest of the surroundings.

    The channel from the terrace

    They serve Ucranian food either inside or on the terrace facing the channel. lovely place, kind people with surviving skills even in English. Good home made food and drinks. At the time we were there this was plainly THE only place where food was served, all other places just offered beer and vodka.

    Favorite thing: The best thing to do upon arrival to Vylkove is to go to the TIC. When you come to Vylkove just stay on the main road and head to the church. TIC is right next to it. Here you can equip with some material, maps, postcards, pictures, books, souvenirs or you can arrange a boat trip around Vylkove.

    Fondest memory: As we haven't met many people who speak foreign languages and by far didn't I expect to find one here I started to talk to the lady working here in a combination of different slav languages that I knew, hoping she'd catch the main point. She just smiled at my tongue-exercise and started speaking in perfect english.
