I planed to visit my girl friend in Odessa next weeks, but I'm really concerned about the revolution that is going on these days.
What do you advise me?
No problem! Flights have not been canceled, hotels are open. No fear! You are not a participant of Ukrainian mass protests. Welcome!)
Thank you so much, that's comforting.
My wife is in Nikolaev,(close to Odessa) at the moment and she said apart from a few flags and banners in both cities there is no sign of any trouble.
Be prepared it is cold.
During the day -15 and at night -25.
Thank you so much for that advice. And above all, I'm leaving a country where the thermometer shows 35 c.
Have a nice stay in the Amazing Odessa! Be careful about local cons and crooks)
Hi, Having just spoken to my GF. The situation is calming down slowly and has mostly been confined to Kiev in respect of the violence and demonstration en mass by different groups. At no point was the airports and boarders closed or the army called in to maintain law. There have been many regional protests with occupation and rallies that were not so violent. In fact enjoy your stay in Odessa. Just be aware of the usual tourist traps etc when travelling.
I plan to travel to Kiev to visit my fiancee and petition her and plan to stay about 2 to 3 weeks should I be concerned about anything in particular, just want to be as safe as possible, I plan to travel middle of April.
I was in the Ukraine last month when it all kicked off. I have been and spent a lot of time in Kiev over the years. Since you partner is from there you will not have a problem. She will keep you informed and out of trouble if anything should happen. Make sure you register with your embassy with your mobile contact number so they can inform you of any change of circumstances or txt you. Take extra cash in case the banks close if it does go bad. Enjoy your stay and a beautiful spring time in Kiev all being well.
My kids wanted to go to Ukraine for summer vacation. Visit their grandmother. How is safe thar?
