If you want to rent one room apartment in Kiev, it will cost you at least 200USD per month, but in general consider 250-300$. If you want to rent apartment not in Kiev, the price will be 120-170USD per month. Bills. Bills for electricity, water, gas and heating are almost the same in any city including Kiev, and depends how much do you consume resources. Usually it costs around 50-100$ in heating season, and 20-40$ not in heating season. Food. You can survive with 50$ per month for food if you will cook at home, and eat potato, cereals, and vegetables, sometimes meat. I am not buying some unique food, usually this is some basic things, only Ukrainian products, and I spend 200$ per month for me and my husband. And this is not including restaurant, only home cooking. Fish is very expensive as it's all imported. Fruits are kind of expensive as most of them are imported. Vegetables not in season is expensive. But in season for you as foreigner it would be almost free. Restaurants. The average price of pizza is 8$, salad costs around 4$, burger will cost 5$, spagetti 3-5$, but for sure prices depends from city and restaurant. Kiev is more expensive than other cities. Average bill in average restaurant for one person usually is 12-15USD. Entertainments. Entrance to night club costs 5-10USD, museums costs 1-2$, bowling - 5-10 USD per hour. Medication. For Ukrainians medical services are free, but if you will go to private clinic, one meeting will cost you 10-20USD, Ultrasound 10-20 USD, MRI - 30-40$, blood test - 5-10$. It's just very general and average prices. if you want to spend 5000 dollars, you will fin how to spend them and where. But I think you already got an idea how much approximately you will need to have to live in Ukraine normally. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Aviation Museum in Kiev: don't miss the visit!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=co-OkDVk9zA -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

I'm dying to know why the resturants in big cities give such a small portion of one meal for the price of a day's wage?
Joo (21 days ago)
It might be a normal portion to a slim Ukrainian lady like you but it's definitely not a North American portion. I was in Zaparohia, Kiev, Lviv and Odessa. Kiev was the worst I think.

where? Usually they have normal size portions

usa is so expensive. I pay $1300 usd for 2 bedroom 2 bath in ok condition. I wish I could pay $300 a month! Prices are very high in usa for everything. Its amazing your govt pays for medication. In our government, they are greedy politicians and companies that makes pharmaceuticals too expensive. ANd office visits about $140 on average. ITs crazy here. I wish I could just pack my bags tonight and leave tomorrow to another country. IT sucks in every way. NEvermind trying to start business here in usa. Rent for businesses are insane. I will stop complaining. I dont want to be depressed about it. But omg. IT sucks in usa.

Can you please clarify if every citizen has got a health insurance? I know people who have no insurance for the family and a flue costs them easily 800 HRS (30 USD) for medication. I was surprised to hear that it is so cheap even in private hospital. And treatment for other things like surgery costs USD 200 and more (cancer surgery).

A little range on apartment renting would be nice, like $500 - $900 with pictures if you decide. All other info is excellent.

The prices of pizza and hamburgers sound really high... I'm sure you can get these much cheaper than $8 and $5, especially outside Kiev. You can find them cheaper than that even in the west.

Hi Olga/Olya do you guys have any places to rent recumbent electric trikes , also is it legal to ride those on the streets without a license or insurance? Are the rent prices you are quoting through airbnb? The best value I found on eating was the chicken roll-ups/burritos from the street vendors in Odessa, they were like $2-$2.50 and they were so large you can cut them in half and get 2 meals out of them, I'm sure you have those in Kiev also.Thanks, I hope you guys are doing well.

Hey Olga!! I have a question if I may be so bold, what part of Ukraine do you live? Because in October my friend and I are going to come to Ukraine to visit our friend Serigy. We were going to stop in Kyiv then make our way to his home city of Kharkiv. I only ask because I think it would be an absolute pleasure to meet you. That's if you are okay with that of course and if we come through your area

You're missing the point. Even with 200 tents it's a small percentage of the population. Every country has these homeless people, even Ukraine.

I stayed from March 6-17, 2018 in Kyiv Flight, roundtrip from JFK to BSP= $617 Apartment in downtown Kyiv, 11 days=$400 (This apartment was 1 block from Independence Square, and with 15 minutes walk from all 3 main Metro lines) Food is variable, eating out 3 times a day, 11 days=$150-400 (As I said, it is variable, depending on your taste) Metro Card with 10 trips=$2.25 Uber Taxi to most places=$3.80 to 5.70 per trip My advice on travel. Plan ahead, ride Metro as much as possible, then schedule Uber from Metro to your location. Saves you a bunch of money.

Olga, is paying 400$ for a big studio flat (38m2) with modern furnitures (shower cabin, LCD tv) located on lesi ukrainky boulevard, close to metro Klovska, a good deal ? The district is nice, I guess it can be considered downtown, but the building is old and bad. Is it worth ? Thanks
Olga Reznikova (6 months ago)
I think so, actually 38m2 is not big at all, this is one of the smallest apartment ;-)

....The relatively inexpensive cost of living in Ukraine is a great reason for tourists to visit, but not the only one. ....Ukraine is such an interesting place! There are so many things to see and do. Transcarpathia's snowy white mountains, the Black Sea, yellow and green fields of sunflowers, virgin forests, meandering rivers and even a stretch of tawny sand dunes! All tied together with a precious black earth soil...a very diverse country. ....There are also many other phenomenal natural wonders as well as glorious man made monuments thoughout Ukraine...the exploration possiblities are limitless. ....Less not forget the tasty and healthy Ukrainian food...with a unique culinary tradition that rivals any country in Europe. ....Finally, one will meet many Ukrainians who are genuinely friendly, kind and sincere. By simply showing interest in Ukraine and respect for the culture, you will make many new friends.... all without a bit phony pretense in their hearts.🇺🇦🌻🇺🇦
Ethan Schulze (6 months ago)
Thanks, you’re very helpful with Country data on Ukraine.
Keith Fox (6 months ago)
I think these prices are too low. Of course it depends on standards but if you have North American standards and size expectations you will be in the $500 to $1600 USD per month for something you would consider nice. You can easily spend $3000 to $6000 a month for luxury accommodations. Of course it also matter are you staying for a couple months or moving there. You can also rent apartments by the day instead of hotels and get decent places in the $16 to $45 per night instead of $200 plus per night for a North American brand hotel like Fairmont or Hyatt etc..
Gregory Thoman (5 months ago)
Keith Fox I don't know what you are talking about. Unless you are renting a fabulous apartment you will never spend that much. You can get a western style apartment for $400 easily. $400 was the most I ever spent on an apartment in 7 years in Ukraine and I over paid. Your expectations are way out of line with reality. American's, which I am, drive me crazy. This Ukraine, not NYC. You cannot expect to find a huge wonderful apartment with all of the western conveniences in Ukraine. Basically they don't exist. Perhaps in Kyiv but no where else. I go to Ukraine to be with my girl, not live an extravagant life style.
Christian Strahlberger (6 months ago)

Good video but i think you have ered on the more expensive average. Can you do a video on trains. I travel by lux often mainly to the south. But I couldn't understand why prices fluctuate a lot. For example a night lux from lviv to Kyiv can be 580 grv the next train 10 minutes late can be 1100grv. Thanks
