Hello, i had thoughts to visit Ukraine atleast once in my life. I heard Odess and Lviv are cool. But do peopole speak English there? Bcs i dont know nothing in russian and ukrainian either. For example when im traveling around Germany there is no problem at all but idk how in Ukraine? Have you been to Ukraine?

Odessa is definetely not the place where english is spoken. Lviv or Kyiv are way better in that case

> do peopole speak English there? Not really. Some people do, but it's probably 5% chance that your taxi driver or cashier in a shop on the corner are among them. It's not a problem though. Actually, depends on what you are going to do here. I've been to Gdansk twice. About 80% of people I randomly met or talked to there didn't speak English, so Ukraine shouldn't be much different from Poland in this aspect I guess

Odessa is a shithole, don't go there. Overrated as hell. Lviv on the other hand is a great place and if you’re going to meet English speakers it will be there or in Kyiv

I’m from Kyiv. Good in summer in what way? The sea is dirty as fuck, the beaches are crowded, whole city is filled with scammers and people trying to pick pocket you everywhere. Even taxi drivers will try their hardest to scam you. I arrived at the airport once and he said it’ll be 800uah to my hotel which was a 10 minute drive XD I told him to fuck off and called an uber, which cost me 90uah. Overall Odessa is dirty, overcrowded and the people there are horrible

I visited Odessa twice and both times it was ugly, dirty and unpleasant. Lviv on the other hand only left me with positive emotions the five times I visited it. Although only the center is good imo and you can see everything there is to see in a week

nah it's definitely not "ugly" but to each their own still think that Odessa is by miles more interesting and imo this is what matters the most when it comes to traveling.

People in Ukraine don't really speak English. You should at least take some time learning some very basic Russian/Ukrainian words. Shouldn't be hard since you already speak a slavic language. Ukrainian is very similar to Polish as well, I think it is safe to say you could even try speaking Polish to Ukrainians if they won't know English and they would lowkey understand.
2021-12-09 00:48
Lviv is the only decent city in Ukraine, sadly I'd say the absolute majority sucks at English, but you'll be safe. Better to go in summertime because during the winter the weather is really cloudy and everything looks embarrassingly gray
2021-12-09 00:50
If you have ever been in Italy then it's something similar. Some people do but like 70-80% don't know even basics but it doesn't change the fact that there are a lot of people who will try to help you with out completely understanding what you actually want

Usually anywhere in big cities at least some people speak English. Especially in Odessa for sure, some people will speak English since its somewhat of a tourist "hotspot"
2021-12-09 06:11
Some English here, some Jebberish there. Lviv is usually the go-to city for foreigners. You can also visit Crimea, it has some nice places, like Swallows Nest for example.

American/Icelander here. I've been to Ukraine. I spent about 6 weeks living in Kyiv, and spent about 7 days in both Lviv and Odessa. Odessa is fine. Whether or not someone under the age of 25 or 30 speaks enough English to talk to is a coin toss. 50/50. Those odds drop rapidly as the person's age increases. I was able to order food in restaurants from younger people without much trouble. Because of the importance of tourism money, they often have English menus, especially in beach-side / tourist area restaurants. This is the case in most of Eastern Europe tbh. You're going to stick out in those moments though. Don't feel self-conscious about it. They don't go out of your way to treat you like trash there. Lviv feels more like a city in Poland than a Russian city. It's more "European", which means more English speakers and generally more openness toward English speakers. That being said, I felt like I was treated mostly well in Odessa. But, it was after tourism season had ended. People were "colder" to you, and the city felt like it was starting to hibernate for the Winter. But I had fun. I'd probably visit Odessa again in the Summer. But I probably wouldn't go out of my way to visit it again in the late Fall. I'd definitely visit Kyiv again. I had a lot of fun in Kyiv. I'd spend a few days in Lviv again, too. Odessa was just "okay."

Not much. Youngsters may know, but older gen 30+ very rarely.
