Top 5 Reasons To Travel to Kharkiv, Ukraine
« on: September 15, 2021, 08:22:54 AM »
1. Ukraine is one of the safest countries in the world for visitors. This is not just my opinion -- it’s the EU’s opinion. Here are the links attached:

https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/news/as-of-today-3-third-countries-join-eu-covid-19-vaccination-passport-gateway/
As far as entry requirements are concerned, one needs to have a printed proof of vaccination or the results of a recent (past 72 hours) PCR test; this is also available  Kharkiv and Kiev airports and it costs UAH 700 (around $25). Also, one has to buy Ukrainian COVID insurance, which is very inexpensive as well.

However, if you are travelling to any country of the world, it makes sense to buy from an insurance company in your home country travel insurance that includes COVID cover; and if you think might decide to stay longer than originally planned – for example, because you are having a great time in Ukraine -- it might be a good idea to make the period of cover extend to beyond the date of your return ticket.
2.The cost of flights is relatively low, as not many people are travelling right now. There are many budget airlines that offer flights to Ukraine, especially from Europe. So, it’s a great time to come.
 3.The cost of accommodation is also just as low as before the COVID pandemic began.
 4 There are very few COVID restrictions in Ukraine; so visitors and locals can go out and have a wonderful time and enjoy themselves just like before COVID. By the way, I have notices that more and more new places like cafes/bars/restaurants are being opened within, which means everything is not as bad as some people may think. Life goes on and we must enjoy it as much as before… Just take a look at the video below, which is from an American digital nomad, who recently decided to permanently move to Ukraine and buy apartments in both Kyiv and Kharkiv both for investment and for own residence needs:
5. Ukraine in general, and Kharkiv in particular, is a very good destination for dental and medical tourism because the costs of diagnostic procedures (e.g. blood tests, Ultrasound, MRI), outpatient consultations with specialists, dental treatment, and various outpatient medical treatments can be significantly cheaper than almost anywhere else in Europe or the Americas.
Finally, in case you have been trying to find your soulmate, I should be able to help you find one among the many beautiful, intelligent, charming, and sweet Ukrainian ladies who live in Kharkiv (or other Ukrainian cities in case Kharkiv’s population of around 3 million is not big enough for you!). I can arrange private guided trips to other nice cities of Ukraine, and I would be happy to accompany you not only as your guide and interpreter, but as your “wingwoman”.
