Travel in Poland and Ukraine in August

Jump to last reply

I'm sorry if this is vague, but I'm sort of at the 'conceptual' stage of planning my summer holidays (i.e. I'm only just musing about what to do :D) I'm not really sure of how long I want to take (lucky enough to have 3 weeks' compulsory paid holiday in August, but I probably can't afford to go for 3 whole weeks) or exactly what I want to do! I am in my late 20s, female, and will be travelling alone. I have a lot of experience travelling by myself, I'm pretty confident & while my Russian is now pretty abysmal (to be honest - I will try to brush up before going) and my Polish and Ukrainian non-existent, I managed to survive in Russia for 2 months, so I think I can handle myself okay. I am looking for a bit of sunshine and beach time, but at heart I'm a culture vulture, so I'm definitely looking to soak up some history, art, theatre etc. as well.

One idea I have is maybe:

Day 1 - Fly Paris - Gdansk. Base myself probably in Gdansk with trips to the beach.
Day 4 - Train (overnight possible?) to Warsaw
Day 6 - Train (overnight possible?) to Lviv
Day 8 - Train (overnight possible?) to Kyiv
Day 12 - Fly back from Kyiv (possibly via London, might sound crazy, but I don't actually live in Paris and that looks like it might actually work out cheaper to fly Kyiv-London-Tours than Kyiv-Paris-train to Tours. I will have to look into that further once I decide on a basic itinerary)

Any advice on transport would be great & also suggestions maybe if I were to shorten the trip, what would you take out? I'm thinking perhaps I could leave Warsaw for another time. The Poland leg is basically because I'm craving some beach time & I have vicariously fallen in love with Gdansk from reading The Tin Drum!

Option 2 would probably be shorter, flying straight to Kyiv for about 4 days then overnight to Odessa for 3 days or so. From what I gather, Odessa and its environs seems like it might be a bit more "challenging" for a solo female traveller, but I don't know what your thoughts on that may be.

Thanks for any suggestions, I just recently found these forums and I think they're wonderful!
