Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm always open to new acquaintances, showing people my beautiful ancient city and even other cities of Ukraine in the summertime,when it's warm and we all have more time and possibilities to travel... I have also organized a Lviv CS Party on June 16, 2012 dedicated to Euro 2012 and it was trully amazing with over 70 surfers from all over the world attending it! The second CS party i've organized was dedicated to the Independence Day of Ukraine and took place on 23rd of August 2012. I'm really happy about this experience and hope I can organize more events in Ukraine and abroad in future!
2013 UPDATE: Visited CS office in San Francisco which was amazing!


Even before I got to know about CS I met one guy from Germany in the street and helped him to find the way to a disco...It was closed so i decided to show him around and proposed him to stay over at my place!We have become good friends since then and he had already visited Lviv 3 times after that case!

I love hosting and attending CS parties and that's what I do :)

I think the most important in CS is TRUST and UNDERSTANDING. It has to come since the first moment you meet your host. If it works you'll be absolutely happy!


I love Ukraine, Lviv, photography, music, cooking, languages, traveling, activities, riding my bicycle, being an actress in my life,playing psychological games and strategies, psychology, event management and many other things... :)
