My favourite time of the year would be Christmas when the snow is lying on the ground; the Christmas lights are twinkling all over the cities, and much festivities are happening. The markets are lining the squares selling the many types of food and drink you would expect at this time of year. Its cold but fabulous at the same time. If this doesn't tickle your fancy springtime and autumn are also lovely times to visit.
Cost per day would only be around 30$ that includes food, drinks and transport to get you around. A holiday here can be done on a very tight budget as long as you book your accommodation and flights in advance. Lots of cheap cafes and restaurants selling an excellent selection of food and drink. Try and pre-book your guided tours before you go as it works out a lot cheaper. You will find you can holiday here without burning a hole in your pocket.
The only downside of Ukraine is the pickpockets, but as like many large cities it is the same everywhere, keep all valuables including your passports in your hotel safe and only take enough cash or a bank card with you for the day. Only change your money in legal change offices, your hotel will advise the best one. Just be aware of your surroundings and go with what you embassy recommends where to visit.
Travel to the Ukraine is quite possible all year round; however, the best times to go are springtime, when the trees are blossoming a maybe early autumn when the weather is still warm and dry. In summer it can be sweltering on the Black Sea coast, and very busy with the locals sunbathing on the many beaches. Winter is obviously cold, but Christmas and the new year is spectacular, in particular, it looks fabulous under a layer of snow!
