    ATMs

    by PikaUA Updated Oct 4, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: ATM, off the beaten path.

    Now there is a plenty of ATMs in the center. But most of time you either see the empty one or with queue.
    Both can disappoint a usual tourist.
    But experienced tourist knows about the hidden places with ATMs ready for service.
    So, my clues:
    - "Astoria" supermarket (near the "Astoria" hotel), K.Marks, 64. Open: 8am - 9pm. Turn to the right when you enter by the right enrance.
    - "Ukraina" supermarket (very center), K.Marks, 54, Open: 7am-9pm. Go forward till the food department. Right before turnstile entrance.
    - "Grand Plaza" shop center (near "Ukraina" hotel) K.Marksa, 67. Open: 7am-9pm. If you enter to "Grand Plaza" from K.Marks side - go and check the right side.
    - Barrikadnaya, 5/7. Open: 0-24. Go by K.Marks from center opposite to railway direction. Turn to the left at Barrikadnaya St. and check for the ATM on the left side in 50m.
    Good ATMing!

    P.S. all these ATMs allow to cash up Grivna and $$$.

  • Dnipropetrovsk - city of opportunities

    by outdigo Written Nov 17, 2011

    Favorite thing: Hello,
    I can't agree with previous post. First of all because Kharkiv is quite wide-spread not well organized city and mostly covered by small private houses, so when you first arrive there you feel as if you are in some kind of giant village. City of students - a lot of universities there, many "moderate" but no "mature" places to visit. Good point is that city has large wholesale "bazar" - wher you can buy cheap chinese clothes etc (if it's really important for living). In contrast Dnipro is quite compact and modern, many really bright and memorable places, huge english and jewish speaking community, many international companies are located here. Located on 3 hills and placed on both banks of Dnipro river it guarantees scenic views and great beaches to spend time in summer.Provided Dnepro is the city on hills - in winter you can do your skiing or even snowboarding here in Lavina center where snow is 100% guaranteed whole winter. Just as fact - Dnipro has the longest embankment in Europe, very beatiful here in summer - when all fountains start working. Here is the view on the right bank of Dnipropetrovsk: http://gorod.dp.ua/photo/fotoday.php?id=68087
    please give a few minutes to see another shots and read a few more about this dynamic and never sleeping city on site:)

    Embankments, Islands & Parks

    by no1pinkpanther Written Jan 21, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lenin

    Favorite thing: So much to see and do. Walk the river embankment. Visit Monastery Island. Visit the parks. Visit the various museums and places of cultural and historical interest. Visit the markets and shops. Although not recognised as a tourist destination, it should be. River cruises. Etc.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Dnepropetrovsk? The first night I met my wife (as she is now) and our walk up Karl Marx Boulevard down onto The River Embankment.
    What do I miss most when I am away from the city? Everything. The public transport system. The mighty river. The centre, which is like walking the main street of any European cosmopolitan city centre. The parks. My friends and relatives.

  • What will it cost you in Dnepr

    by prodreamer Written Aug 13, 2008

    Favorite thing: a nice one or two bedroom "euro" furnished apartment with washer, microwave, etc. in or close to downtown will cost you around $500 per months, further from the downtown $300-400. Euro means renovated to meet Euro standarts, like having vacum-filled windows, but you must see an apartment before you rent, interpretation of "Euro" varies. Food price comparable to US. Shuttle "marshrutka" mini-buses will take you anywhere for 2 grivna (40 cents) There're also trolleys and subway, 1 grivna for a ride. Life is getting pricier by leaps and bounds. All ATMs are safe to use. Daily limit around $300 per day and some ATMs will give you in grivnas only. They will charge you a user fee around $3, then your bank will hit you with a $9 fine for using a foreign ATM. Bring some cash with you to save on those transactions. Go to Ozerka farmer market to buy fresh produce, you will love it, and it taste better than in your local Whole Food.
