The article deals with the extraordinary spread of literary reporting on the theme of wandering in the Western Ukrainian journalism of the interwar period. In particular, the collection of reports on traveling topics by Olena Kysilevska «Letters from the Black Sea (To son)» is thoroughly analyzed. The literary work of Ukrainian writer, journalist, editor, publisher, socio-political and cultural figure Olena Kysilevska was closely connected with a lot of trips abroad. In 1939, her book «Letters from the Black Sea (To son)» was published in Kolomyja, which included reports about the author's staying in Istanbul. The object of the characteristics of the article was the impression of the reporter from the reforms by Mustafa Kemal in the economic, political, social, religious life of the country. It is noted that much attention in the collection of reports focuses on the descriptive Turkish customs and everyday life, which carry realistic information about the traditional life in the east. Olena Kуsilevska’s attention was gotten by changes in life, family relationships, and culture that took place in the young republic. One of the greatest achievements of Mustafa Kemal’s reforms, according to Olena Kуsilevska, is the emancipation of women – the government abolished polygamy, women were given the right to vote in parliamentary elections, the right to enter higher education, choose any job, ride in trams and trains with men, go outside with an uncovered face and unaccompanied. In the reports «On the way to Tsargorod», «Tsargorod» the author describes her impressions of being in the capital of Turkey. O. Kуsilevska visited the famous Eyyub Cemetery in Istanbul, introduced readers to the colorful oriental world and the bazaar as the most important national attribute. The text is divided into parts, but retains its integrity through the presentation of information from 1 person. It is noted that the chronological type of composition chosen by the journalist allows not only to describe the events, but also to share his own impressions and thoughts from what he saw. Traveler observations of the reporter often consist of fixing all the trifles that reproduce the unique eastern flavor. Literary reports on the traveling themes of Olena Kysilevska, more than eighty years since their writing, are read with interest and are relevant today, because they are interesting, cognitive, entertaining, attracting modern readers to the freshness of feelings, intriguing statements of the past and the past, and show a complete and objective picture of the life of Turkey in the 1930’s.
