Living in Cherkasy

The city of Cherkasy lends its name to both its province, or 'Oblast', and the region surrounding it. It has been an important center of Ukraine's culture and history for hundreds of years, still being known to many as the Center of the Cossacks for its important role in Cossack history. The remnants of its grand place in Ukraine's history remain for expats in Cherkasy to explore – the Scherbina House is a luxurious prerevolutionary mansion and the modernist former Hotel Slavyanskiy is one of the most unique and distinct buildings in the country. There is also plenty for culture-loving expatriates living in Cherkasy to enjoy, notably a philharmonic orchestra, several theatres and a good collection of museums including the distinctive Local History Museum. For expats in search of fresh air, the city is famously green, with a good number of parks and a zoo. All this makes life in Cherkasy comfortable and stimulating, and with a strong sports scene and various annual festivals (notably its seasonal sculpture festivals) you'll have plenty to keep you occupied.

There is also a domestic airport, misleadingly named Cherkasy International Airport, offering daily flights to Kiev. Travelling by train is the easiest option, although by boat you will arrive via the beautiful 'Cherkasy Sea', a huge reservoir basin next to the city.
