EVENTS

If any of you had been wondering “Where is Champions League final 2018?” we are happy to announce that it is, in fact, closer than ever. The grand sports event of this spring will feature a match between the two-time defending champions Spanish Real Madrid and English Liverpool. The winners will earn the right to compete in 2018 UEFA Super Cup and semi-finals of the 2018 FIFA Club World Cup, but before we make any predictions, let's have a look at the best way to settle in Kiev to witness the May match.

Fine dining

Freelancers and those who work from home often face the too familiar ordeal: an apartment is simply too distracting to work at. The feeling is so universal that Kyiv alone has more than 10 coworking spaces, created specifically so that nothing distracts from the day’s goals. However, cafes and restaurants known for their peace and quietness serve the same purpose just fine.

Travel

Moving places can be an anxiety-inducing ordeal as it is, but what about moving to a different city or a country? It’s a whole other level, especially when the local language is nothing like your own. Worry not – we prepared a guide of 10 essential things to know for expats who are planning on living in Kiev, featuring how to get a Ukrainian visa, where to rent an apartment, and, of course, where to taste delicious Ukrainian cuisine.

Art

The grand opening of the ‘Amplitude’ group art project will take place on May 18 in FACE Foundation. Contemporary Ukrainian artists will present their inner works of mind via various media, such as painting, graphics, sculpture, video art, and collages. The artists study amplitude of oscillations, ponder on the concepts of eternity, tranquility and harmony in a modern dynamic world.

Shopping

With the rise of sustainable fashion, the tradition of buying clothes for festive events slowly but surely fades away. Instead, more and more customers choose to rent the whole look and feel like a celebrity on the red carpet while wearing Valentino, Vera Wang or Dior. Following the world trends, dress rental has become incredibly popular in Kyiv and other Ukrainian cities as well.

Wellness

If the weather in Kiev burns your mind, there are perfect escape options - the 3 best resort complexes near Kiev to sunbathe, swim, relax and really enjoy summer a bit further away from the city.

Real estate

While redecorating a room or even an apartment may initially sound fun, often it becomes a taxing ordeal — measuring furniture in the shops, keeping it all written and flicking through endless color palettes can easily kill the vibe. Luckily, the rise of technology makes interior design easier for everyone, especially with the Augmented Reality apps that let you see the result right on your phone screen.

Cars & Boats

Running through the middle of the city, the Dnipro River is the perfect vantage point for taking in some of Kyiv’s most iconic sites. From sightseeing trips with experienced guides to fun boat parties, Kyiv cruise companies offer some interesting routes, exciting entertainment program on board as well as top-notch position for exploring Ukraine’s capital landmarks from different perspective.

Agro

Ukraine Must Become an Agrarian Superstate
