Questions and answers:

Margie asks: Would you recommend a few days in Chernivtsi for a solo traveller? Is the ride by train or by bus more scenic? Thanks.
Expert's answer:
Chernivtsi, as a city with a unique preserved architecture of different styles and rich cultural heritage, is definitely worth a visit. The former Residence of Bukovinian and Dalmatian Metropolitans, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the main attractions of the city and Ukraine in general. There are regular trains running from Kyiv to Chernivtsi.
Jack asks: Is Ukraine tourist friendly? Are there unfortunate skinhead attacks like in Russia?
Expert's answer:
According to the statistics of 2009 there were about 40 accidents as a facts of racial intolerance in Ukraine (twice less than in 2008). As for being tourist friendly there are still some problems with the level of service, knowing of local people English language, prices for foreigners and others but in general Ukraine has become much more tourist friendly for the last years.
Ben asks: Is it possible to travel as a tourist to Ukraine without any knowledge of the Ukrianian or Russian language?
Expert's answer:
Everything is possible of course but I think you will have communication problems because not a lot of people in Ukraine have enough knowledge of English (I think in large cities like Kiev or Lvov you will be understood by some people but not in small towns and villages). So you better hire a translator.
