ukranian map

24 hours after arriving Ukraine.They  are the most exited  but stressful hours.

As you travel somewhere around the world it is always better if someone pick you up there in airport.
But in case if you have no one to pick you up in the airport. What would you do?

We are going to tell you basics that you need to know after arrival to Ukraine. What to do, how to stay safe.

First there is no need to worry. The airport is usually one of the safest and regulated places in a country.

Fortunately everything is clearly marked, including which line to stand in, which forms to fill out, etc.

Get to the information desk.

The information desk is usually located past customs in the area of the airport that is accessible to anyone. If you don’t see it, just ask someone. And almost every airport has a desk for new visitors to get info.

Here’s what you’re going to get at the information desk:

  • A map of the city.
  • The best way to get to your hotel
  • The name and address of your hotel written out in the local language. Don’t assume that all taxi drivers know English or how to get to your hotel or hostel( even if you think this place is well known).

To survive in foreign country 24 hours after arrival that is what you need

  • Transfer
  • Money
  • Mobile connection
  • Accommodation

 

  1. TRANSFER
  • Once you at airport the easiest and comfortable way to get to your destination it is to take a taxi. It cost about 250 UAH ( or about 10$) in Krarkiv and about 400UAH(about 15$) un Kiev.
  • As I already mentioned don’t be surprise that majority of people don’t speak English. So they would be difficult for them explain you how to get certain place. There is a suggestion:

TAKE A NAME OF A PLACE YOU WANT TO GET WRITTEN AND HAVE A MAP WITH YOU.

You can show it to people and receive a right direction

 

Let’s learn several words in Ukrainian and in Russian:

Thank you – DYA-KU-YOU (Ukranian),  SPA-SI-BO( Russian)

Good bye – DO-PO-BA-CHE-NYA (Ukraine), DO-SVI-DA-NIYA (Russian)

  1. MONEY

When you need to change money, you have a few options.

  • Change it at the money changer when you get to the airport.
  • Use an ATM. Use your debit card to get cash in the local currency from the ATM (Contact your bank before you leave and ask them which banks are their international partners).
  • Ukrainian currency is hryvna (UAH)
  1. Mobile connection

Buy new sim cards after arriving to airport. There are three main operators in Ukraine: lifecell, kievstar and vodafone

  1. Accommodation

It is much more better to care about a place to sleep before you get the country.  However, if you are looking for something short-term (or need a place to stay until you can find more permanent housing), you can look into hotels, hostels, Couchsurfing, or Airbnb.
