Hello guys. My name is inna and this is my travel blog. I live in Kiev so this is why I came up with an idea to give you some tips on your trip to Ukraine. I'm sure a lot of you are coming to Kiev for Eurovision so I think this video is just in time.
I hope I will still have enough time to film more videos for you in Kiev about what to see sere and how to have a great time in Ukraine. But I'm not sure I will handle all off that just because I'm leave for my next travel soon.
This time I decided to talk with you about 2 major topics I'm usually interested in coming to the country for the first time. Today we'll talk about money and transportation, because I believe these two things are the most important to make your trip comfortable and safe.
So talking about the money my tips for Ukraine will not be very different from the ones I give to my friends when they go for a trip abroad. I would suggest you to bring your visa and master cards credit cards as it's the most save and convenient way of spending money.
But at the same time it's very important to have some ukrainian hrivhya in cash every time you go out. There are two big cases of using cash.
First of all you can't give tips with you credit cards. I don't know the real reason of that, but in a restaurant you pay can play for your lunch with a card, but you always give cash for tips. It's important to say that in Ukraine
we tip waiters in bars, cafes and restaurants, but the amount of the tip it's not included in you bill. Usually we give 10% of the amount in the check but it's not obligatory and is always on your choice.
The second case where you will need some cash is smaller shops, coffee shops and market places. Sometimes these merchants just don't have a card machine to accept your payments. So it's always best to have from 2 to 5 hundred cash hrivnyas on you.
I would suggest you to use the nearest ATM for withdrawing some cash. It's super easy to find in Kiev, because they are everywhere.
And of course don't walk around with thousand of cash in your pockets. It's not safe in every country.
My last tip about money may sound surprising or cruel in some understanding. If somebody comes to you in a street asking for some money or help, Please don't do that. There are always people around who they ask for help. Seriously, if someone comes to you and ask for some money in English, just walk away. I don't think this will happen to you, but just in case you know what to do.
And the nest thing we need to talk about is transportation. First of all it's great we have Uber service in Kiev now. So it will be easy for you to call a cab and pay for a ride with your card attached. Uber is not expensive here. Any ride will cost to you about 3-10 euros. Going somewhere in the downtown would be no more that 5 dollars.
Also of course we have a subway in Kiev. It's very easy to use as you can't really get lost there. It's great you can build your routs in google maps.
I would suggest you to buy a special metro card at any of the stations. You can always find a cashiers desk at the station. For you to understand transportation is cheap in Ukraine. For example my card and 23 metro rides on it costed me around 100 hruivnas.
You'll be totally ok with this amount of you are coming here for a week or so.
Ok that's all for today. Please like or dislike this video and subscribe to the channel. Please let me know if I need to make more videos in English. And of course if you have some questions, leave them in the comment box below.
Have a great trip and see you in Kiev!
Красиво жить не запретишь
Is $1000 dollars enough for hotel, and food ? Maybe a night or two of clubbing ? Not looking to stay in a luxurious hotel, just something nice and cheap, also going to a restaurant during breakfast and dinner, maybe snack here and there. Thanks, hope to hear back from you 👍🏾
Great video Inna!!! I am planning a trip to Kiev in the Summer of 2018 and your tips were very helpful. I'll be looking up your other videos for more tips. Keep up the good work!!! Cheers from Washington, DC.
Owned buildings at another site may be used as alternate workspace if a building cannot be occupied. This depends upon the location of the building and whether the building would be affected by the same hazard that prevented use of the primary building. The alternate facility may be a viable business recovery strategy if the building can be configured with the required equipment or existing equipment can be configured to need business requirements.
Systems and Equipment.
Evaluate these systems to determine whether they meet the needs of the program. Identify and plan to overcome emergency communication system limitations such as weak radio or cellular service or areas where a warning system cannot be heard. Upgrading this critically important system may be required. Verify that these systems are in reliable working condition.
If fuel, battery backup power or batteries are required, make sure the system can run for the required time and chargers are available. Document how to operate these systems and mark the locations of controls. Make sure the information is available during an emergency. Many of these systems also require periodic inspection, testing and maintenance in accordance with national codes and standards. Train staff so a knowledgeable person is able to operate systems and equipment.
Materials and Supplies.
Be sure to compile a list of available resources using the Emergency Response Resource Requirements and Business Continuity Resource Requirements worksheets as a guide.
Preparing for an emergency, responding to an emergency, executing business recovery strategies and other activities require resources that come from outside the business. If there were a fire in the building, you would call the fire department. Contractors and vendors may be needed to prepare a facility for a forecast storm or to help repair and restore a building, systems or equipment following an incident.
The following external resources should be identified within plan documents. Include contact information to reach them during an emergency and any additional instructions within the preparedness plan.
Public Emergency Services.
Contractors and Vendors.
