Anna Sokolova

“This year I can’t afford any trips. I’m short of money. Last year I spent my vacation in Koktebel, Crimea. Of course, if I had enough money I would like to go somewhere abroad. The place of my vacation always depends on my financial situation.”

Kyrylo Tatarnykov

“I would definitely stay in Crimea as I live there and find it to be the best place for a vacation. I’m a sailor and have been to a lot of countries but still prefer to spend my holiday at home. Besides it saves a lot of money.”

Iryna Bogaty­riova

“I’m on holiday now. This year I’ve decided to spend my vacation here in Kyiv. I’m from Russia, from the town of Magnitogorsk. This is my first time here and I really enjoy the beauty of the Ukrainian capital. I have relatives living in Kyiv, so I can afford to stay here for at least two weeks to visit all the well-known Kyiv sites.”

Andriy Triska

“In a few weeks, I’m heading to the Shatsky lakes in western Ukraine. I also like to spend vacations in the Carpathian Mountains. I prefer travelling around Ukraine, as we have so many beautiful places that are really worth visiting. It’s much cheaper to spend a vacation in Ukraine than to go somewhere abroad.”

Anastasia Kozlovska

“I’ve spent my vacation in Bulgaria this year. I’m happy. It was really great. Next year I’m going to explore some other European countries. As for Ukraine, I think that Crimea is the best place for a summer holiday.”

The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
