So i got a wild hair this morning and decided to go to the Ukraine, so i bought a plane ticket. now, i am doing some research about Kharkov at the end of August for nine days, and i was wondering if someone could give me a good run down on what to expect.
1. How expensive is it there, and approximately how much money i should bring with me.
2. Some cool places to visit and things , and do not necessarily need any bars, but it might be helpful if i am bored at night.
3. How mush Ukrainian/Russian do i need to know (last time i was in the Ukraine i had a translator).
4. What to watch out for, i know it cant be any worse then NYC or Rome.
Any an all assistance will be helpful. Thank you in advance.
