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 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmQQtZzmCb0 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

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 👍🏾

Elvert Rodriguez You could blow that in a few days or make it last a month. It all depends on the standard of accommodation and restaurants you choose 😄
