Tourism in Ukraine is a fairly new thing. Before 1991, foreign tourists were only allowed to visit officially designated “open” cities. Today, the tourism industry is one of the fastest growing branches of Ukraine’s economy.
Ukraine is a popular tourist destination for many reasons, including its vast history and culture. There are over 500 cities in Ukraine that are more than 900 years old and 4,500 villages were founded more than 300 years ago. Almost everywhere you look you can see historic buildings and monuments that reflect the remarkable history of the Ukrainian people.
When planning your vacation to visit the beautiful Ukrainian ladies you have been chatting with, there are several lodging options. The travel liaison can assist you with recommendations, but here are the main choices.
The choice of hotels is either state-run or privately owned. There is a wide range of prices, from $10 to $600 per night, depending on the city and the level of service. There are some 4 and 5 star hotels in the larger cities of Ukraine. Those are usually privately owned, offering better quality for a slightly higher price.
Short-term or long-term apartment rentals are an excellent alternative to hotels and can be found almost everywhere. You can receive the same services as in a hotel but the prices are usually 50-60% less.
A low-cost alternative for those who are on a tight budget may choose to stay at a youth hostel. Prices range from $6 to $35 per person and will accommodate anyone, not just young people.
For those travelers who truly fall in love with Ukraine, timeshares are a good option. These properties are more cost-effective over time than paying for nightly accommodations for the frequent vacationers. They are usually very high quality as well.
Many travelers to Ukraine have such rewarding and memorable experiences that they vow to return again as soon as possible. Try out a new lodging option each time you travel to see which you are most comfortable with. Hopefully you will meet your perfect Ukrainian bride and then she can travel to your country!
