About Kiev :
It is a city with a history spanning more than 1,500 years.
Kiev is a welcoming, beautiful city located in the north central portion of Ukraine. The capital of the Ukraine, Kiev is a river city of parks, trees and rolling hills that offers a pleasant hometown feel combined with the style of a major trend-setting European city.
Kiev is not simply the capital of Ukraine, it is also the mother city for all Eastern Slavic peoples. Kievan Rus, whose descendents include Ukraine, Russia and Belarus was established between the 9th and 11th centuries. The Russian Orthodox Church and all Eastern Slavic art and architecture originated here. This city is truly rich in history and stunning architecture. Kiev has stood the test of time, surviving many enemies including Mongol invasions, devastating fires, communist urban planning, and the massive destruction of world war
The population in Kiev is right about 4 million people or more. The official language is Ukrainian, although the majority of the indigenous people of Kiev speaks Russian.
There are numerous museums and fabulous old churches and cathedrals to visit while in Kiev. You may also enjoy a boat ride along the snaking Dnipro river which divides the city in two. A lot of interesting attractions here.
Kiev is not only blessed with some of the most beautiful women in the world, but with great culture as well.
For example The Shevchenko Opera and Ballet Theatre was built in 1901 and is a very impressive building. It is the venue for some of the best Opera and Ballet performances found anywhere. The restaurants and shops this capital city abound. You can find anything form traditional Ukrainian cuisine to Mexican food all with a distinctly Ukrainian flair. There is never a problem finding a Ukrainian souvenir to bring back among the hundreds of shops and kiosks.
This is a city that is yet again struggling to find it’s identity in the ever changing political landscape. The people of Kiev are strong and proud of their heritage, and we feel lucky to have the opportunity to visit this great city and partake in its hospitality.
Many tourists come to Kiev for the first time back here again and again during even decades.
Never send money to someone you have never met.
Always have a back-up plan.
Work to eliminate any agency from your communications.
Always get the lady's home address and home phone number as early as possible.
Verify the ladies you are writing to are real.
Do not fall in love with photos!!
Always be yourself. Show the ladies the real you. Be truthful. Use current photos.
Do not rush into this! Take your time and be methodical, not impulsive, about this process.
Treat international dating the same as dating someone from your home country. The biggest difference is the cost (travel, phone. etc). This is an expensive process. Don't believe anyone that tells you otherwise.
Dating tips for men:
Don't forget to smile even if you are nervous and if you don't like this woman. Try to make good impression - you are not only John, Michel, and James. For this woman you are also the representative of your country and your nation.
If you meet your lady in the evening, don't forget to take a taxi not only for you but also for your lady. The best solution is to take one taxi, at first bring your lady home and then go to the hotel.
