Kaniv is a Dnieper River cruise port and a small city (population around 24,000) in Ukraine's Cherkasy region/province in the country's central part. Kaniv is one of the main Dnieper River ports and a historical town (11th-century founded).

As a travel destination, Kaniv attracts international tourists with the Chernecha Mountain's scenery. Domestic tourists visit the town for the Tarasova Hill (aka Chernecha Hora) where is the grave of Taras Shevchenko-Kobzar (1814-1861, Ukrainian poet, painter, writer and politician). Other popular sites include Arkady Gaidar Museum, WW2 Memorial Park, Park Slavy (Alley of Glory).

The current-day city's economy is based on the Kaniv Hydroelectric Power Plant (state-owned, on Dnieper's Kaniv Reservoir, 1975-completed), agriculture (production of fruits and vegetables), condiments production, milk and cheese production, poultry (production and processing).

As cruise port, Kaniv is included in the schedule of the MS Dnieper Princess ship. The large riverboat operates a 12-day "Black Sea and Dnjepr" cruisetour itinerary leaving roundtrip from Kyiv (Kiev).
