Immigration/emigration takes several hours with a big truck. No visa, but health insurance document and Green Vehicle Card. Special: You have to show cash, tickets, credit cards with sufficient amount for your stay, said 2.300 €/month. Vehicle owner has to be part of the party, otherwise notary document and apostille.
Harsh personnel asking for baksheesh, medicine, just like Police controls throughout the country. Poeple not that friendly, English quite limited, restaurant quality and prices high in Kiev but low elsewhere. Beer is first choice.
Nice Carpathian mountains in the West but boring flat scenery in the rest of the country. Diesel cheap. Bad roads and dirty cities. Did you know that Europe’s Geographical Center lays in Ukraine?
