The atlas presents this fascinating region, once known for its great ethnic and cultural diversity, highlighting numerous places of interest, including historical and architectural monuments, religious buildings, folk craft centres, tourist accommodation including campsites and hostels, etc. Picturesque towns and villages are highlighted, and many are annotated with dates of their foundation or first mention in written records.

Railways indicate narrow gauge lines and show stations. Topography is shown by spot heights, with colouring and graphics indicating forested areas, vineyards and swamps.

All place names are shown in Cyrillic only and, apart from the English map legend, all the text is in Ukrainian. This includes lists of main places of interest which annotate all the road maps and street plans. The atlas has a separate index of localities and a distance table.
