Vylkove (Вилкове) is a town in Southern Ukraine.
Vylkove is also called the Venice of Ukraine, although Venice of the poor would be more appropriate since the channels in the town are barely comparable with Venice and in late summer are so dry that you cannot even pass them by canoe, not to mention by boat. Nevertheless, the town boasts a welcoming climate and the opportunity to explore the picturesque and impressive Danube delta by boat or canoe.
Several buses a day run between Odessa and Vylkove.
Also, there are three buses to/from Izmail, mostly in the morning and noon.
- 1 Canoeing. You can either explore the channels of the town if the water is high enough, which would take around 2 hr.

One famous destination (by motorboat) is this 1 river mouth, which can be reach by canoe if you have 8 or 10 hr.
