What do people like (and dislike) about Kharkov?
When we asked expats and global nomads what they like and dislike about living in Kharkov, they replied...
"Expats and digital nomads generally like the low cost of living in Kharkov, as it allows them to stretch their budget further. They appreciate the affordable housing options, inexpensive public transportation, and reasonably priced food and entertainment. The city's rich history and beautiful architecture are also attractive features, as well as its vibrant cultural scene, which includes numerous museums, galleries, and theaters. Many expats and digital nomads find the locals to be friendly and welcoming, making it easier to integrate into the community. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may dislike the language barrier, as not everyone speaks English, and it can be challenging to navigate daily life without a basic understanding of Ukrainian or Russian. The weather can also be a downside, with cold and snowy winters that may not be appealing to everyone. Additionally, the quality of healthcare may not be up to the standards that some expats are accustomed to, and finding English-speaking medical professionals can be difficult. Finally, the political situation in Ukraine can be a concern for some, as ongoing tensions with Russia may create a sense of instability," said another expat in Kharkov, Ukraine.
