The Dnieper river

The Dnieper is the fourth longest river in Europe after the Volga, the Danube and the Ural. Its length is 2285 km, its basin area is 504 thousand square kilometres, and it has the longest channel within Ukraine. The Dnieper passes through 3 countries: Russia, Belarus and Ukraine.

The Dnieper comes from the Valdai Hills (at an altitude of 220 m), beyond Kherson the river divides into branches and forms a huge delta of 350 square meters, and carries its waters to the freshwater Dnieper-Bug estuary. Its depth is more than 12 meters.

The Dnieper is divided into three parts: the upper Dnieper, from the source to Kiev, the middle Dnieper, from Kiev to Zaporozhye, and the lower Dnieper, from Zaporozhye to the river mouth.

Enjoy the cruise “Ukrainian waterways” sailing through magical Slavic hinterlands and exploring the territory between Kiev and Odessa.
