: : Well it looks like my original idea of Moving to the Ukraine, has sparked off a number of interesting comments about the Ukraine and settling down there.
: : Some have been positive and others very negative about life and conditions in Ukraine.
: : Although I would accept that life for the average Ukrainian can be harsh. I was just wondering whether those submitting negative comments thought all towns and regions of Ukraine are bad or whether there opinions concern only certain downtrodden towns of Ukraine with high crime rates and a reputatiion for anti social behaviour.
: : In the UK, I can also name a few towns where violence and anti social behaviour run riot, namely Bristol, Bradford and the inner city areas of Birmingham.
: : So perhaps I can encourage posts from those people who could recommend towns and cities of Ukraine where the people are nice and friendly, the ammenties are good and life is generally wonderful.
: Very good post, I d be interested in hearing the recommendations of cities as well, but, I will name a few of the cities I ve visited that I feel are safe, friendly and liveable,
: Poltava, very green city, beautiful well kept center, newer trollys, fun things to do, I was told by my guide that the mayor of Poltava is a good man and another city I would list is Kharkov, I ve walked the center of Kharkov alone at night,many times, never felt threatened in any way, friendly people on the metro, happy to give directions, also a beautiful center. There are cities in Ukraine, like everywhere, I wouldnt want to reside, but that's a different subject.
: iis ees
Try Berezhany - Ternopil region - beautiful historic town - loved by its inhabitants and by me!
