About

Hi! My name is Pavlo Fedykovych, like Pablo but with V.

I’m an experienced travel writer with articles published by Lonely Planet, CNN Travel, BBC Travel and The Independent Travel as well as creator and editor-in-chief of svitforyou.com, a travel website about Central Europe (Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Czech Republic), Croatia and Ukraine.

I’m sharing the beauty of this world through words and photos.

Also, I’m a social media enthusiast with millions of monthly impressions on Twitter as well as photographer featured on IG accounts of BBC Travel, Fodor’s, Skyscanner, Travelzoo, Croatia Full of Life, Visit Czech Republic, This Is Athens and more.

Here are the articles I’ve done for the major travel publications:
