    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring slip-on shoes with you (no shoelaces!). According to our customs we have to take off our shoes when we enter other people’s apartments or your own.
    Having slip-on shoes will rid you of the hassle of messing with your shoelaces several times a day.

    Wearing a pocketed undershirt - that’s where you’d better keep your money.
    No pickpockets can get that.
    Pickpockets are not so numerous in Luhansk as they are in our capital and in other big cities. They are at the International airport in Kiev, at all underground stations, at the railway station and at the markets…

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: no problem

    Photo Equipment: available including digital

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: We have a city beach at the Seversky Donets, but bathing has been forbidden there for more than ten years due to the big concentration of dangerous substances in the water. So it's better just to enjoy the sights of the countryside there and not to take a risk.
    Nevertheless people do bathe at our city beach and beyond its limits.

    Miscellaneous: Lots of stores, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants - that is all about Luhansk, too!

    Luggage and bags: Usual bags

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In winter the temperature may fall to 10 or 20 degrees below zero centigrade and in summer it rises to more than 30 degrees.
    Besides, it is often windy with us, so it's good to have a cap on.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Even if you leave something behind, no problem. Many things are available at our stores and markets.

    Photo Equipment: also available.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: good shoes/boots for a cold season

    Tabasco sauce, toilet paper, soy sauce

    by johnthemighty Updated Dec 7, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: Tabasco sauce, It seems the rearest of comodities In Luhansk, might not mean much unless you want a Bloody Mary.
    (The ones at the Chelsea restaurant are terrible bland tiny things). Also No Soy Sauce. I must have it on plain white rice. A travel roll of tp is a good thing to have handy, the local public stuff may give you splinters if there is any left.

    Pack the Charmin

    by tmyroniak Written Feb 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you've ever seen the brown paper towels used in public restrooms, schools, auto repair shops, etc. in the US, THAT'S what every roll of toilet paper is like (at least from what I've experienced) in both Russia and Ukraine. Not good after being there for a week.
