Not an answer to the "absolute cheapest" part, but I'm flying in with SafetyWing on Saturday and it's a relatively cheap travel insurance. Fingers crossed that works 😅
SafetyWing if you don’t have access to free insurance.
I used SafetyWing a few days ago and it worked. The only problem was that the expiration date was before I leave Ukraine but I explained to the officer that it is a monthly subscription and they let me go in
you can use Safetywing with exact travel dates instead of the auto-renewal subscription to avoid that problem
Does anyone knows a good coffee to work for 3-5hs in Lviv?
Safetywing won’t cut it (officially) for Ukraine’s COVID insurance requirements since they don’t have an office / official presence in Ukraine AFAIK.

From visitukraine.today/|visitukraine.today:br />```All foreigners, regardless of age and country of arrival to enter Ukraine must have an insurance policy (certificate) issued by an insurance company registered in Ukraine or a foreign insurance company with a representative office in Ukraine or a contractual relationship with the insurance company-partner on the territory of Ukraine (assistance), which covers the costs associated with the treatment of COVID-19, observation, and is valid for the entire period of stay in Ukraine.```
With all of this said, it doesn’t sound like the border guards are checking all that carefully.
What about Cigna?
If you go to visitukraine.today you will see all the insurances that work and you can also purchase one directly online. My plan B if they wouldn’t let me in was to buy in the moment one of those with my phone.
But I did that only cause I already had my safetywing plan paid. If you are not already paying a safetywing plan then don’t take the risk and go hire a Ukrainian plan from that website
They are pretty affordable as well
Im down for it too! staying in Lviv until 25th
best dimsum in Kyiv?

I’m loving Lviv, amazing city
kinda cold, btw lol
naz24d
Yo UHB8US9J6! I'm here for a day only, gonna bounce around surrounding areas mostly.
Lviv is a fantastic city, I’m loving it too… but yes, it’s a cold even in winter. Specially at the night.
naz23d
Love the little gem of Western Ukraine is getting discovered! Coming from UAE last night I thought I'm gonna die from hypothermia walking in the hoodie 😂
really? damn it, looks like I need more than a hoodie :s
At the night probably yes, I didn’t bring any jackets and I’m regretting it 😪
It’s gonna get much, much colder soon ⛄️
hi, any website for hiring local talent? I am looking for a senior Android dev, fully remote

Hey all 👋 I will be in Kyiv on Sunday and haven't booked anything yet, thinking an airbnb. Do you have any recommendation for neighbourhoods? I am looking for somewhere with cool cafes with young people crowd.
reiterskaya street is waiting for you
About 80 us, 200m from center, near the Motherland Monument
erdo19d
yqsdoouhqs thanks, I just checked on street view, looks pretty quite, I guess it's a cool place stay, but no cafes or anything on the street itself 🙂
there’s like a lot man, wine bars with organic stuff, food market РЕЙТАРСЬКА CIRCLE, etc. and ofc a lot of young stylish people
and yeah, 200m from center where you can find everything else
erdo19d
sounds great thanks!
Frankly, I'm surprised how helpful is people in Kiev, A few minutes back, I was trying to get into an Uber (no idea where the driver was) asked a woman for help, and she took the phone, looked around, called the driver for directions, then explained to me in the map where to go and where to pass the streets, etc..

And even the drivers don't get bother if your address is a bit wrong!

For people staying in Kyiv, take a daytrip to Mezyhiria - the austed president's residence. It's like a proper park zone with nice picnic areas.
erdo15d
after some googling I am still not convinced which cafe to go, I stay near Golden Gate (Kiev), but I am ok with a little travel, can you recommend me some cafes that has got nice tables and internet that I can work?
Just go in some nice ones and try it out 🙂
Fandom
Blur
Ziferblat
Journalist
16 Coffee

This should be enough to get you started fuuxtz
erdo15d
thank you, they all look very nice... I'll start with Fandom, which is pretty nearby.
It’s a great place, I’m sure you’ll like it
Paul, Honey, Aroma cava is in the vicinity
erdo15d
Fandom was a bit claustrophobic for me 😅 but Ziferblat is pretty cool, pay as much as you stay... Only problem is communication, at the time I get in the girl who is setting me up, sadly speaks no english at all
Hahaha yeah all these places are different in terms of how long is comfortable to stay, Ziferblat is almost like a coworking so the best option if you want to work for longer… in regarding english I feel it's similar to all cafes haha, it depends on how lucky you’re
There's another one named Pesto Cafe U024BPVP404. It's near the golden gate, 30 Mbps + nice view to the motherland statue.
erdo14d
thanks bmbnewbyznrlqa I am actually enjoying `Ziferblat` for the second day... the place feels like full of nomads. Though most people seem to be locals. Let me know if anyone of you are around, I'd be happy to meet up.
naz14d
I'm working form Ziferblat on Volodymyrska today, tomorrow and the day after. Would anybody around be interested to do a micro-meetup?
naz14d
Could also try out any of the other places nomadlist.slack.com/archives/C031AUV10/p1631526812057900|listed above>.
zjtvo let’s do it, heading out to work in a bit.
Ziferblat right ?

Alright gonna grab some food at bimbo then come there
BIMBO2 COFFEE Х MORE

Welcome to join if you guys are hungry
Best cheese tost in the town
erdo13d
I am alright, thanks
What is the best way of travelling from Lviv to Kiev? Also, any good coworking recommendations? Ideally one where you can borrow a monitor and have your own desk.
sending you a PM!
Re travel – you have two options an airplane or a train.

SkyScanner will find you relevant flights.

As to a train, you can book one at booking uz gov ua (can’t post links, sorry!). Intercity trains (marked with “IC+“) are typically modern and nice

shit like this is why I wrote off Ukrainian women. They are beautiful but every single one I met tried to take me for a ride.
thankfully If found a country where they women are jsut as beautifull and more genuine. (ie not secretly pay for play)

waveskin-tone-2 I wanted to book a trip on 20th October to Kyiv but I’ve heard there might be new lockdown. Is this true? Does anyone have some news about it? Not sure if it’s a good idea to book something in this situation.. thanks
I’m in Ukraine now and haven’t heard anything about impending lockdowns. That said, cases are rising and with the weather getting colder that probably won’t help. lujhchtphkczzvub if you do come make sure to bring evidence of covid insurance from an accepted (local) provider. When I got here about 10 days ago I saw at least one person ahead of me having trouble with passport control because they had forgotten that. Anyway visitukraine.today/ is a good resource to keep an eye on.
thanks a lot. I wrote to visit ukraine hotline and they didn’t confirm anything about the lockdown either. BUT schools are closed and if Kyiv will be in red zone, then bars and restaurants and cafes and many more places will close which make it not worth visiting then 😕
iiovrxjwewhzspmw can you send me links of info you’ve seen on Kyiv lockdowns? I’m heading there this weekend so it would really be helpful
Hey fellow nomads I am going to Kyiv tomorrow, I might need a super quiet solo meeting room, any recommendations which coworking spaces can offer quiet rooms? Thanks in advance!!
I have tried Creative Quarter at Gulliver for a month and can recommend, nice meeting rooms

coming to Kyiv for a few days. any recommendations for cool cafes to work from? staying near Golden Gate
also can anyone tell if I need my insurance certificate printed or having it on the phone is fine?
For me on the phone it was fine two months back

nomadlist.slack.com/archives/C031AUV10/p1631526812057900 This is the only list you'll need to start from 😉
woo that's great, thanks!
paid a 1300 fine
UAH I hope?
If anybody want to meet the next days, I'm here and open for coworking, discovering, a coffee or going out 😄
For me the same couple of days ago
I recently left Kyiv after spending five months in the city and, having noticed that some of you have enjoyed my previous coffee shop recommendations, I decided to create a more complete list with some of my all-around favorite places and recommendations in Kyiv, this is a heavily personal selection and not meant to be an exhaustive list at all, but instead one that should help someone that just arrived get around the city, enjoy!

Kyiv City Guide 🇺🇦 (by ULH2K4R3L)br />
Places to live/stay
goo.gl/maps/ygc8pWq4gTHDKRy56|Center/around Khreschatyk> - the most popular neighborhood to stay, but an area that few locals will choose to live. The closer to Kreschatik, the touristy it gets, for longer stays I’d recommend places that are still close but not in the middle of it. Locals tend to like the goo.gl/maps/EG35Y7Xw4R4YkSft8|Golden Gate> area, my favorite area is around goo.gl/maps/h3t22xZs4VAVNHE98|Taras Shevchenko Park>, I’d also recommend staying around goo.gl/maps/ra3Z2d3LzunwV5n2A|Velyka Vasylkivska St> (close to the center) or around goo.gl/maps/ERpbQDRLNXXLMWDo6|Gulliver.br />• goo.gl/maps/sNTSCjBCPYzpdGVA9|Podil - a great alternative neighborhood, I like Podil because its less touristy but still with plenty of good options for cafes, restaurants and bars. You will end up commuting more (as most of the good places are around the center) but it’s a good option to see a different part of the city.
Coworking
goo.gl/maps/QzwsyGcCeP8tv6Yr8|Ziferblat - an anti-cafe, a mix of café and coworking place paid by the hour (good for longer work sessions with no membership commitment)

Language learning resources
www.pimsleur.com/|Pimsleur - good learning resource if you’re already used to listening to podcasts and/or audiobooks, this course mainly focus on listening and speaking so I’d say it’s the perfect tool to learn enough Russian and/or Ukrainian to get around (the prices on the website are ridiculously high, I’d suggest the subscription option via the app store)

Nearby cities to visit
goo.gl/maps/1o4kR4ZRj8XNyBc86|Odessa - must-go destination during the summer/warm months

goo.gl/maps/robpEEWMbcJHP57C6|Kharkiv - a great place to visit a big Ukrainian city without all the tourists around
I can see how Kyiv is slowly becoming a more and more popular destination with nomads so I hope this provides value to some of you that are planning to visit the city (and possibly help even more people discover this somewhat still hidden gem)!
