Ukraine What to Pack

  • Documentation...

    From reading the Ukraine forums on here, it's obvious there's still much confusion about whether or not visitors require a visa - not surprising when the official embassy website offers no specific information about this matter, & that was before Russian troops entered Crimea...However, I can tell you for a fact, that I've visited 4 times without...

  • Essentials

    Good, sturdy shoes are a must. Ukraine isn't known for being a flat country and Kyiv especially has a lot of inclines. I would always recommend taking a small bag with some toilet paper and some wipes. A lot of public toilets charge for toilet paper although it doesn't cost alot. Sometimes there might not be any toilet paper at all. Bring your...

  • Mobile Phones

    Bring your mobile phone and charger, as ukraine sim cards are quite cheap to buy.I found the UMC 'Jeans' pay as you go the best... cost about $10 for a start up kit and free credits...Website:

  • Pack Food and Cash

    Pack light. A bag you can carry plus a backpak. It's good to carry a small day pack to make daily walking easier while touring on foot or by bus. A money belt and/or under the shirt, round-the-waist or round-the-neck passport wallet will protect these from pickpockets. Carry lots of cash from your own country, such as American dollars or British...

  • Money

    Make sure your foreign currency bills are not rumpled, torn or written on. You might experience problems while changing them.Money Exchange place is called "Obmen Valyut".

  • Bring Lots of Cash

    Make sure you bring plenty of cash when traveling to Ukraine. A lot of places don't take credit cards, and there are few ATM machines. Exchange your cash for Ukrainian money in the little kiosks you find everywhere.

  • Packing List

    On this photo you can see national Ukraine currency = 1 grivnyi. On this side you can see Vladimir Velikiy grand duke of Kiev Russia. This is a small monetary unit, you can pay 2 tickets on tram. ))

  • Packing List

    Resort Cash vs ATMs: you can bring along your ATM cards if you are travelling to major cities (Kiev, Lviv, for example). Besides the relative safety this offers, it will also help you to avoid huge commissions that are often charged by foreign exchange buros (and by the companies converting travellers' cheques into cash, alas, as well). Shops...

  • Packing List

    Bags are being packed regularly in Ukraine. In my travels I met a number of people who I would to some degree call friends. I recently began to think of what became of those people and with a few exceptions almost all have moved elswhere....places like Argentina, Spain, Germany and United States. Since my travels, I have been assured that...

  • Packing List

    The climate of the country is moderate. Winter is rather mild, with no severe frosts but with regular snowfalls everywhere except the south. The rivers and lakes freeze in winter. The average winter temperature varies -20 Centigrade in the north to -3-5 in the south. Summer is quite hot and dry, with occasional showers and thunderstorms. The...

  • Packing List

    Rapid temperature drops are common so warm clothing is necessary even on hot summer days. Bring your own anti-septic hand-showerstuff, because the toilets are not always very clean.Bring a medicine-card (if needed f.e. for insuline). The only things i take with me are: antidiarria- and stomic tablets and anti-insectstick Voltage is 220....
