Please just asking is it cheaper to live in Kyiv or Kharkov?
Anonymous on Oct 19, 2018:
And as for rent prices – they are much higher than it shows here
Numbeo says 1 Bedroom is like 50 sq m – its unreal to rent good conditioned flat for 5k, or 8k in the center
you should multiply these prices atleast x1.5 to get the real numbers.
Dennis on Oct 19, 2018:
Salary is not correct (the same for all other regional centers of Ukraine) because Numbeo is getting the information from Minfin that shows average salary of the Oblast, not the certain city
the real average salary in Kharkiv is around 10k UAH
Carlos López on Sep 17, 2018:
Is it true the cost for buying an aparment for 100 m2?
rose on Aug 02, 2018:
how can we live in Kharkiv as an international student, costs are more expensive than living in Uzbekistan
Anna on Jul 25, 2018:
To the previous comment. The war doesn't directly affect Kharkiv although it is not that far... The prices are rising constantly and at a higher speed than wages. But in general it is not that bad. The safety and employment are ok, nothing to worry about.
Sam on Jul 22, 2018:
I am interested to know of the living conditions in Kharkiv. Is the war still raging there? I have heard differing reports. Are the living costs rising there? How about safety and employment? Haven't been there for years but I am considering returning. Will appreciate any and all information.
The Aussie on May 28, 2018:
I will be going for the third time on June 6....Am seriously thinking of moving there...
