And if you think prices in Kiev are cheap, Kiev is the most expensive city in Ukraine. Prices in other cities were much cheaper. You can ride trains all over Ukraine on a shoe string budget.


Kyiv itself is an expensive city. But if you travel to Karpaty of far east, you can find very cheap cities. For European people a rent price of 10$ per night is almost a miracle. ‘cos they are used to get only hostel for such money. And for Ukraine – it’s normal. So, they come here to enjoy summer sun, warm sea and friendly people.


Very good! We should be glad that so many people have found a suitable place to live with reasonable prices! Moreover, there are enough interesting places for visiting there and Europe is so close! People spend much less money for travelling there than the people from Siberia do.


Maybe Ukraine is a cheap place for people from other countries, but unfortunately the prices are high for Ukrainians. Today the average salary cannot cover even payment of utility services and food. But every person also needs money for buying new clothing, travelling and other important things. By the way, the average salary in Ukraine does not exceed USD $150. It is awful!


You are wrong. 150 is the minimal. Average is around 250-300$.
