Skiphian baba in botanical garden
I was pleasantly surprised by this industrial city!
A little off the beaten path
In a nutshell
Hardly any proper tourists!

Yavornitskiy History Museum
In the Dnipropetrosk History Museum, Hall 9 is devoted to the millions who perished in the Soviet period. Representative individuals have documents related to their disappearances, trials and executions distributed around the walls. Villans are named: Stalin, Brezhneov,...
You can get there either from Promenade or take the small bridge from Shevchenko Park.I swear the island and attractions there have not been updated since I was born. Some of the rides there are older then me and still function.Main Attractions:Shevchenko Monument, small...
Hard to miss the park since there is a big Lenin Monument at the entrance.A small park with a government building in the middle. If you go back there to remember your childhood and ride the swinging roosters, don't bother. Nothing is there anymore. Everything was replaced...
Park Globy (formly known Park Chkalova)
Wonderful park with many amusements for children and adults as well. Take a stroll around the lake and feed the ducks and swans (they do bite!).Take a ride on a wheel for many scenic views of the city. The pretty white building on the lake is called "Summer Theater", but...
This is a most pleasant and popular park with a big pond, a waterplay fountain in the pond and lots of benches to relax on. But it's also extremely popular with kids because there is a railway line in there. It's not a small toy railway but a real one but smaller in size...

I asked in my hotel for a recommendation on a nearby bar and was directed to this around 5 mins away. Its pleasantly enough decorated inside.They have Fashion tv on the television if that is your thing. Its Western prices on the food / wine menu.When I was there late on a...
Toko Toko: Only place we went
This place is just round the corner from the Macdonalds on Lenin central sqaure opposite Lenin squareIts just a cafe but it was good before the match - beer is around 15GRN, £1 and they do pizza and other snacks
Various: Starting place for nightlife
There are a lot of cafes, bars etc beside the river. If you go to where the central bridge is across the river and face down stream there's a whole bunch of places dotted along there for a mile or so, maybe more. They are open in the Summer at least. I can't comment on what happens there in Winter. There was also plenty of people strolling along pleasantly enjoying themselves when I was there yesterday evening.
After sunset its a pretty nice view across the river.

Train / bus station connections to the city centre
The train ans bus stations are pretty close to each other to the West of the city centre.Tram number 1 starts / end at the train station and runs along the main drag in Dnipropetrovsk, Karl Marx Avenue. Karl Marx Avenue runs roughly parallel to (but not immediately beside)...
Trains and planes
There are now 2 fast trains running Kiev-DNK and vice versa (one early morning, one late afternoon) and also one morning train DNK to Simferopol (Crimea). 2nd class costs around 10 Euros one way. 2nd class is comfortable on these trains (in my opnion better than 1st class)....
if you take a taxi at the airport without calling a taxi call center, you will pay around 150 uah to go downtown,
if you call a taxi radio center (several numbers: 053 or 054 or ....), a taxi will come and you will pay only 50 uah !!!
Unique Suggestions: negociate in advance your course to downtown

Watch the baggage allowance
no1pinkpanther 16 reviews
Luggage and bags: Depending upon the time of year you travel will depend on warm or cold weather clothes. Cold weather clothes being much bulkier and heavier beware of the old fashioned and out of date (in my opinion) 20 - 25 Kg baggage allowance.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: These are not slovenly people. They are very modern, trendy and chique. If you don't want to stick out like a sore thumb or appear like a clown or a tramp, dress well at all times. Smart casual for everyday and formal (suite & tie) for theatres restaurants etc.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: As all things are written in a language you probably won't understand, like milk being called molakov in an opaque plastic bag sometimes, takes necessary toiletries and medical supplies with you. Especially medical supplies. They can be expensive out there.
Photo Equipment: Film is cheap.
Miscellaneous: Take western chocolates if you are visiting female friends or relatives. The likes of Quality Street or Roses you wont find out there so these will be very much appreciated.

Dnipropetrovsk - city of opportunities
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...
What will it cost you in Dnepr
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...
