The edition continues publishing the documents from Galagans’ family archive – an aristocratic family that played a significant role in the history of Ukraine of the XVIII–XIX centuries. Diaries and an epistolary that represent Ukrainian noblemen’s travels across the European countries in 1840th-1860th as a valuable social and cultural experience are collected in this documentary monograph. The authors of the published texts-travelogs are Grigoriy Pavlovich Galagan (1819–1888), his mother Ekaterina Vasilievna, born countess Gudovich (1785– 1868), his wife Ekaterina Vasilievna (1826–1897), born Kochubei, their son Pavel (1853–1869), as well as Grigoriy’s mentor, Galagans’ close friend – Fedor Vasilievich Chizhov (1811–1877). These texts help to understand how their authors’ destinies were included into the time and event flow. In other words, how they were swimming in the “river of time”: grew up, got older, how their mentality changed, how significant were the problems of personal development and social activity for them, how they perceived the events and processes of that epoch – wars, revolutions, reforms as well as scientific and technological progress. The national and the global components are intertwined in the travelogs’ sense field. Getting acquainted with the Europe’s national variety helped to understand the ethnical and cultural uniqueness of Ukraine and to represent it as integral space.
