Pictures of the Dnister River Valley: a Rafting Trip


The Dnister River is a scenic and largely unspoiled river that flows from the Ukrainian-Polish border to the Black Sea, passing in the vicinity of Ivano-Frankivsk, Kamyanets-Podilskyy, Mohilevsk-Podilskyy, and Odessa. Some stretches of the river are very beautiful, with cliffs and forests lining the riverbank. As such, it is a favorite for rafters (motorboats are prohibited because the river is in an environmental protection zone).

Tribute to our rafting guide, Serhiy Didych
9 years after the rafting trip described on this page, the man who guided us down the Dnister River, Serhiy Didych, was killed by special forces during the violent protests on Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kiev. When I learned of this, I created a small tribute page with photos from our trip and of Serhiy's body in Kiev.
