The capital of Ukraine . Aproximately , 3 000 000 people . I got by bus from Lviv . It was a night bus . So at 4 am , I got the Terminal . Kiev is very big , beautiful and interesting . I went by bus until Nora´s place , my host . She lives 10 kilometers far downtown .
An interesting thing! At least in Kiev and Odessa . In the bus, when paying, people are giving money from the back to the front, hand by hand, until the payment reaches the driver . When the driver gives back the change , same operation . In fact , once, to make sure , if its reliable . I didnt pay and nobody realized . It was cheap but I wanted to make sure how reliable was .
In Kiev , most of the people speak Russian . So the most of the words that I learnt in Ukrainian language , I couldnt use , only the numbers .
Kiev , is one of my favorite cities , that I ve ever visited . Its really big , I like the river , which crosses the city . Great parks . Historical and modernt part in the city . wide avenues , street food , pretty girls …
I spent 3 days in Kiev . It was very short time . I think , at least , you need a week . If Ukranian girls were pretty in Lviv , in Kiev much more prettier . The metro was very modern . You need to go down three floors . Luckily , there is cyrillic and latin language to read the signs . Its easy to go by metro .
Transportation is very cheap . With one euro , I got twice metro and twice bus . Prices were little bit more expensive than Lviv . There are some museums for free . You can always be on the ball and try to go inside for free , when they arent watching at you .
I only met my host at night . We were drinking vodka together . We couldnt understand each other very good . But it was fun ! It was very to get home , all the buildings were similar . It happened to me in Ukraine . I got lost everytime !
From Kiev , I went to my last destination in Ukraine , Odessa . Ukraine , its one of the most interesting countries that I ve ever visited . Its very authentic . You always feel that you are very far from your home . There are similar things , as having beer . They usually have beer with sunflower seeds . In Spain they serve as tapafor free . But ut in Ukraine , you need to buy yourself . But its very cheap !
