Cost To Live In Ukraine

It is getting more and more popular with the number of people traveling to Ukraine. Is it cheap to live in Ukraine? Some of the men I met in Ukraine are planning to move there.

Quite a few have already moved to Ukraine. One man, I met had spent two weeks in Kiev. He met several beautiful women, had the best time of his life he told me. Next thing I know 3 months later I see him in Kiev. He told me he sold everything he has in California and

Would You Move To Ukraine For This Single Mom?

move to Ukraine. He went on to say he was looking to buy an apartment outside of Kiev. It was going to cost him $35,000 for a new three-year-old place. This sounds crazy to most people I know. I know exactly how he feels about this place. It is not only the sexy women but the culture the quality of life. It all moves a little slow there.

 Do I think this man is crazy for doing this sell all he has and moves to a foreign country! Nope, not even a little bit I actually envy him.

I would do the same thing if I did not have many responsibilities in the USA. Did not ask him how much money he had total for this move. So let me break it down on what it would cost to move to Ukraine. First I would not move to a big city like Kiev or Kharkov, these cities can get very congested. There are many cities you could get a good deal on an apartment, you wouldn’t have to buy one. So let’s say Vinnitsa or Poltava maybe Ternopil. Even Cherkasy. All of these places are very nice and depending on what your hobbies are, in which place you choose. If you want central Vinnitsa is the place, it is 3 hours in a train from Kiev which will cost you $8 round trip. If you wanted to go to Odessa area next to the black sea. It is 5 Hours away.

So let us pick Vinnitsa and the cost to live there. First, an apartment would run you between $250 to $400 a month.

For $200 you would get a place around 600 square feet, for $350 you would get a place around 1000 square feet.Now for the cost of living here is some of the cost you will find in smaller cities. These figures were providedby

I have many friends that live ok on $250 a month and the people that make over $300 do quite well. You can always find a beautiful roommate to help you with the expenses.

One of the best things about Ukraine women is they need to work. They are not people that like to sit around and waste time. With the two of you, it could be a decent living.  Also, it would be good for your woman that now does not have to work a job that requires a 60 to 70 hour work week. I know you hear all the stories about how Ukraine girls want to leave their countries. It can be true especially for young girls, that have no roots yet. For most of the women, they do not want to leave their country they love their country. Most have a family, with Ukraine people family is everything.

Small City Girl

 I myself hope to one day be able to leave my life here in America, but for now, it is just a dream. To be able to go for a walk with my family in some of the best parks in the world.

There is nothing fancy about the Ukraine parks, but it is a great place to relax. Meet with friends, enjoy the peace. Another thing there is very little crime in Ukraine. I have not seen once in all my days in Ukraine a fistfight, maybe two girls fighting over a man. People do not tolerate fighting or even loud arguing in public. It is a great place I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an inexpensive peaceful place to live. Another good aspect is it is close to Europe four hours to Poland six hours to Hungary.

 So here is the biggest difference living in The US two people would have a good life making $100,000 a year that is two full-time jobs. In Ukraine, all you would need to live is $4000 a year.

With you and your wife working it would be very easy. If only your wife worked she would easily bring in $2500 a year so that leaves you with $1500 a year. This is a good life too. You will be able to go out to dinner twice a week travel by bus or train every month. You really do not need a car, public transportation is very good there. The biggest expense would be traveling back to your native country. It would be a nice relaxing way of life.

The guy I wrote about that moved to Ukraine all of a sudden, would call me from time to time to ask questions.

It is a culture shock to go from California to Ukraine! Once you book a tour with me, I or one of my staff will definitely answer any question you have. He has settled in now and has a cute girlfriend. If you want to come see for yourself if this is a place for you book a tour with me.

Questions or comment please write me. Rod L.
