Center has free public wifi. At least Khreshatyk and Maidan.

I was wondering if you know of a store where I could buy some computer accessories, such as sd, micro sd memory cards, external dvd burner, maybe a laptop, etc.
All I've found are small shops here and there, but nothing like mmmm, say Saturn or Media Markt

In Spain it’s a tradition for the last year University students to go on a trip all together, being Riviera Maya, Tunisia or Punta Cana some of the favourite destinations. We call it “viaje de fin de Grado”. It’s an about one week trip, before the final exams, with a budget of about 1000€/pp. Do you do something similar in Ukraine? At Uni or only at high school? I’ve found that in some countries they don’t do anything at all, while in others a “gap-year” trip is more popular. In some others they do so, but only after high school graduation. Thank you very much for the responses!
- final year trip

Hey guys I need to know if in Kiev there is a market or a mall where I can buy shoes avoiding the expensive prices of the centre. In Lviv I was in an outdoor market where I saw adidas, nike, reebook ecc. for 600/800 hrv, is there something similar in Kiev?

Hi Daniele, i'm not sure ab such pricess....but 1000+ you can find stock sports Mall Plazma on metrostation Petrivka...by the way there also you can see a outdoor market, but u wasn't there long time and dunno ab prices;)
P.S. Better to invite with you Ukrainian speaking friend for shopping if you want low price hhh;-)

Ok, thank you. So which is the biggest outdoor market for clothes?

Beware that brand shoes for 600-800 in outdoor market are most probably fake. Try Plazma, you can find good discounts there.

I have planned my travel to kiev. I would be staying with a friend. Since i cannot speak Ukranian/Russian I would like to go around without being dependent on my friend, Taxi's or public transport. I am good with Maps and remembering routes.
Here is my question : Can i rent a decent hybrid road bike for duration of 10 days. Any shops renting out cycles for longer duration. What should i expect to pay if any ?

I know of at least two place where you can rent a bike for 7 days. But I'm sure it'd be possible to arrange it for 10 days if you talked to them. Unfortunately, their websites are only in Russian: http://katay.com.ua/store/auxpage_prokat-velosipedov/ and http://velobikestock.com/index.php?route=information/information&information_id=9 Maybe your friend could help you with it if they speak the language. I've never rented bikes from them, so I can't really tell you anything about these companies.

Is there any city cycling routes map ?
