    Voldoja and his family showed me Uzhgorod center and before we went to have some coffee at a special coffeeshop called Medelin.
    Amazing how good the smell was when we entered this great shop.
    We all ordered some small cup with espresso coffee which most people here like to drink als o when they are at home.
    U can also buy special teas.
    Certainly worthwhile a vist this shop!

    Appartments from locals

    by catnl Updated Jun 15, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sometimes i stay with my family or with friends. On the picture the appartment "Kwartiera" of my friend Andriy, i lived here the last time dec. 2007 for 1 week.
    Some of the houses are in a terrible state.
    Sometimes there's no elctricty or water!
    For us who are used to luxury its quite an experience to have to wait for water!

    Cars and locals

    by catnl Written Dec 10, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    People who have a car are mostly very old since people dont have work or very little money they cant afford good cars.
    My friend Andriy has his own workshop were he can repare the tires of the locals.
    He can keep his family just a life with this work.
    The roads in Uzhgorod are in a terrible state..most roads have big holes in it so drive carefully!

    Faith maybe, the children were very happen because it was the first time they got some toy or cuddle just for themselves:-)

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ukrainian domestic apples taken from a datcha.
    Most people who are living in appartments do have Datcha's, a garden with fruit and vegetables mostly on the outskirts of the city the're living.
    Without any chemicals used! wow fantastic good taste!
    I have seen several now, its relaxing to go with friends or family and have a BBQ and some drinks ofcourse:-)
