Authors of Awesome Ukraine guide-book released mobile application
Year ago, Osnovy Publishing created Awesome Kyiv guide in English language which now became iOS app
Awesome Kyiv - an English traveller's guide book released a year ago by Osnovy Publishing and from now on became iOS mobile application thanks to Kyiv company SmartAdventure, the publishing house reported.
"Kyiv is intoxicating. The city explodes with art and culture. Across Kyiv’s numerous squares, locals debate politics, play chess and gossip. Its layered history, lush parks and hidden islands along the wide Dnipro provide for endless exploration. Its tree-lined promenades entice lovers to stroll, and revelers to gawk. It’s a city of flâneurs. Of poets. Of politics," says the description to mobile app.
Osnovy Publishing tell that Awesome Kyiv is neither a guide nor a manual. It is more likely to be an insight of the city. The full version of Awesome Kyiv has 80 illustrated articles and GPS locations of hidden gems for off-beat city walks, the authors say.
"Inside the app you’ll find references to major historical events, famous and talented residents, art, culture, sports, literature, traditions and even beloved street food," said in a statement.
In addition, Awesome Kyiv is said to be first one of the series of Ukrainian city guides. Osnovy Publishing in the nearest future plan to release Awesome Lviv, Awesome Odesa as well as Awesome Ukraine mobile apps.
Awesome Ukraine guide appeared 4 years ago. The idea was to give insight to foreigners about Ukrainian history, culture, traditional cuisine, mythology and symbols as well as popular culture.
"In it you will find explanations as to: why our national symbols are the blue and yellow flag and the tryzub; why Ukrainians are sentimental towards the nightingale, vyshyvanka and salo; why we are proud of Pylyp Orlyk, Serge Lifar, the Klychko brothers and the AN-225 "Mriya" airplane; why Kazantyp has attracted young people for years; and why the centre of Europe is located in Zakarpattia Oblast," said in a description to the book.
