Reliable tourist information is not as hard to come by as it once was.

Local Tourist Information

You can obtain tourist information in several ways:

Hostels Hostel staff and owners are sometimes very up to date on what’s going on locally, and they speak English.

Hotel receptions Due to the lack of tourist offices, reception staff have become used to fielding travellers’ queries.

Internet There’s a lot of information on the net if you know where to look. Sadly, much of it is out of date.

Tourist information offices Most large towns in the west of the country have tourist offices; the east lags way behind.

Tourist Offices Abroad

Ukraine has no tourist offices abroad, and the information stocked by its consulates and embassies is very general and basic.
