The fifth largest city of the Ukraine, Donetsk, has so much to do and so many wonderful hotels to reside that it is difficult to know where to begin. Whether you are comfortable on campsites or prefer lounging in luxury, Donetsk is certainly delighted to cater for your every need.
The Donbass Palace boasts the finest of fabrics and carefully crafted furniture and fixtures, state-of-the-art technology in every room, such as heated floors in the bathrooms for your absolute pleasure. The hotel staff offer a personalised service, always with a smile.
The hotel boasts 129 air-conditioned and centrally heated rooms, a 24 hour check out service, lift access, hotel safe and, of course, reception. All rooms are spacious and include en-suite bathroom, double or king size beds, wonderful tranquil views of Kiev’s parks and gardens, a wonder to behold in summer and arguably bettered during the winter months as the snow creates what can only be described as a wonderland.
The Donbass Palace truly has everything, from beautiful rooms to an on-site restaurant, conference facilities, car park and laundry. The spa facility is also rather magical, combining Eastern and Western, traditional and modern treatments together to create a truly individual weave of fabric to furnish your health and fitness requirements.
As one might expect from such a large and luxurious hotel, an indoor swimming pool, sauna, hot tub, gym and sun terrace are also provided.
The Donbass Palace is located in central Donetsk, within easy reach of the opera house, drama theatre, shopping and bars/clubs.
A typical summer break at the Donbass Palace would cost around £250 per room per night.
The Opera House & Theatre
Whilst you are staying in Donetsk, visiting the eighty-five year-old opera house and ballet theatre is a must as it offers not only a wonderfully elegant exterior but also out of this world performances at incredibly reasonable prices. The Theatre hosts world class productions and performances by legendary opera and ballet stars such as Ivan Kozlovsky, Pavel Lisitsian and Anastasia Volochkova and since 1994, 'The stars of the World's ballet' festival has taken place at the theatre. Alternatively, why not catch 'Swan Lake' in its original language for as little as £3 a ticket, or for around £10 you will secure the best seats in the house.
A gorgeous, green pathway that escorts you for around 2 kilometers out of the city is the picturesque Pushkin Boulevard. During this pleasant stroll, you will discover al fresco cafes, relaxing fountains and the monument ‘O Taras Shevchenko’.
Home of the immense 42 meter Lenin statue: one of Ukraine’s largest symbols of Lenin, signifying the importance of the city during the Soviet Union: a wonder to behold.
If your budget is somewhat tighter and the luxury of the Donbass Palace is not within your price range then why not pay 25 times less per night (around £10) and take your own tent or caravan to Donetsk?
