About Me

Hey awesome people!
Welcome to Ukraine! 🇺🇦

Special for you I made an Instagram account about Ukraine and Kyiv beside, named "How to survive in Ukraine";) Be careful humor! 😄
So you don't need scroll tones of messages in CS or ask google where to go or what to eat, just follow it⬇


I don't plan to make money on it, just give some tips and help travelers to see another side of my country. Now there are only few posts, but I will warmly appreciate it if you'd like it!


Привіт and hello!

I'm Olia, just a theatre person and traveler.
I like to meet people with their own philosophy.

I speak Ukrainian and I LOVE this language. I never switch to Russian, at least it's the one language person speaks. If you don't speak Ukrainian - English will be the best choice)

If you assume I can be a good guide, you are definitely right!
Please, If you want to meet up, don't write "Kiev" (it's a mistake from russian transliteration).
Kyiv - is correct!

Have a great time in the capital of Ukraine!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to be beside crazy, fun, interesting people. And I've found them here.
Thanx, CS.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

This happened in Berlin, in a suburb train. Me and my friend could't understand how to get to our host. I asked some sad guy about the way, but he was too shy to answer. He told he doesn't know. Then I've asked a girl in headphones. She didn't know also.
I’d decided to share with them my mandarines and... In 5 minutes they’d decided to cooperate and help us to find a way to our host.
At the end of our journey he asked her number.
I hope they are still together.

Another thing:
I've been to Ireland in 2020! That was my childhood dream and will stay it forever.
