The 5 Best Cities to Meet Pretty Ukrainian Ladies (#1 A-Z Guide | Updated 2020)

There are a lot of very off-the-grid, under-the-radar cities in Ukraine. Many of them are stocked full of pretty Ukrainian ladies. Some speak no English, some have never met a Westerner, and some will probably make you tear your hair out. However, it’s worth mentioning these cities.

In this list, you’ll find some of the “usual” suspects. Cities that are well-known for being great spots for expats to spend significant time in.

But I’m also going to discuss some cities that may not quite be on your radar, and whether or not they should be.

Obviously, a lot of factors go into a city. Many places in Ukraine are definitely not as western-friendly from a simple “ease of life” kind of view. If you plan to spend a significant amount of time in a city (say more than 10 days), it will begin to wear on you.

Even if the streets are flooded full of pretty Ukrainian ladies.

Keep that in mind as you read through this.

As one final note: 

If you want to find success, I strongly suggest you talk to Ukrainian women on the internet prior to a trip—especially for these second-tier cities. The last thing you want it to get to a place and have no dates, and have the rotten luck of not meeting any girls who speak decent English (assuming you aren’t well-versed in Russian).

The best ways to meet Ukrainian girls online are Ukraine Date and Tinder.

5 Cities to Meet Pretty Ukrainian Ladies

#5: Lviv

A city that is admittedly probably a bit more Polish than Ukrainian. This is a place where they get upset (sometimes! 2020 update: all of the time) if you speak Russian and not Ukrainian. But, the people of Lviv are getting better at this, which is nice.

In short, Lviv is an absolutely beautiful place. It’s got the traditional Old Town Square that you’d commonly find in Polish cities such as Wroclaw and Krakow.

On top of it, Lviv has quite a few universities and still retains it’s “small-town” kind of vibe. Therefore, you can rest assured that all of the pretty Ukrainian ladies attending the universities will be at least intrigued by a western guy who is visiting Lviv.

In addition, the English will be much better among the younger crowds who have been raised on it their entire life.

Honestly, Lviv’s tourism is booming. Walking around there recently, you heard Polish, Czech, Slovak, and Hungarian…other Eastern European countries are starting to see it as a fun, inexpensive, and cool tourist destination, and it’s also a pretty quick flight or even car ride for many of them.

Slovak stag parties aren’t a problem, but if the Brits ever start flocking to Lviv…look out.

#4: Odessa

Ahh, yes—the mail order bride capital of the world.

This is the city where one of my friends got the Ukrainian brides scam pulled on him. So at first glance, I’d tend to agree that it is indeed the capital of the mail order bride industry.

With that being said, Odessa is beautiful—in the main area of town. Once you wander too far off from the city center itself, it drops off quite a bit. If you’re a westerner with money from the west, you’d really only want to live in the city center.

The beach districts are nice, but they’re simply dead during most of the year. Only during June, July, and August would it even be remotely worthwhile to live there. The other nine months of the year you’d practically be living in isolation.

There are a lot of pretty Ukrainian ladies walking around Odessa, that’s for sure. They dress very well. Summertime in Odessa is truly a beautiful thing, with summer dresses, skirts, and heels all in full bloom.

At the same time, Odessa is just a bit of a weird place, in my opinion. Some people love it. And some hate it. I fall into the second group. It’s just a culture that seems to want to scam people, the English is very poor, and there just isn’t much to do other than hang around in the city center.

I was bored of Odessa after six weeks. While I have no regrets about staying there for that long, I find myself thinking it’s unlikely I will ever make a return journey for more than a week-long vacation.

#3: Dnipro

Dnipropetrovsk pretty Ukrainian girlsDnipropetrovsk pretty Ukrainian girls

First off, don’t let the name fool you if you start Googling around about where to find pretty Ukrainian ladies. Dnipro was actually known as Dnipropetrovsk as recently as 2016. Most Ukrainians themselves still will refer to it as Dnipropetrovsk, as that’s what it’s been their entire life.

It would be like the United States changing New York City to York City. It would take some time to adjust to it!

Dnipro’s population is just a hair under one million, so it’s roughly the same size as Odessa. What Dnipro doesn’t quite have though is the booming tourism industry that Odessa has. Therefore, it’s got more of a locals vibe. It’ll be up to you to decide whether or not that’s a good thing.

Of course, the further east you go in Ukraine, the most “difficult” life will generally become. Outside of Kiev, the English is going to be worse. There will be less amenities that most of us are used to.

With that being said, Dnipro has top quality Ukrainian girls. You’ll just need to work a bit harder to meet and attract them. You’ll also likely be far more isolated—less likely to run into any other expats or westerners, just to have a simple beer with.

Just food for thought.

#2: Kharkiv

Pretty Ukrainian Ladies Kharkiv

Much like Dnipro, Kharkiv lies further to the east of Ukraine. It comes with the same pros and cons. I’d say a worse overall quality of life than a place like Kiev, but certainly you are more of an “exotic commodity” in regards to meeting pretty Ukrainian ladies.

So, is it worth it?

Over Dnipro, yeah—absolutely. It’s got more people, incredible nightlife, and an overall younger vibe for the girls. This means better English with the girls and guys alike, which in turn makes your life easier.

In short, Kharkiv is quite close to Kiev. Most people who fly into Ukraine will be coming via Kiev, so if you have the time—you should absolutely go. I would not hesitate to say that you can easily meet some girls in Kharkiv if you are well put together.

Make sure to work on your language skills for almost all of these cities, except maybe…

Updated For 2020:

English levels in Kharkov are still not all that high. Even the restaurants on the main street that serve American food can’t do much communication in English. With that said, the people are quite friendly and as a foreigner you will have a good amount of exotic factor there.

The city has a smaller-town feel nowhere near the hustle and bustle of Kiev. The pace of life is just slower. It is very nice, clean, and pleasant.

#1: Kiev

By far the most common expat city in Ukraine, and for good reason.

It’s a huge place, with thousands and thousands of stunning girls walking around in dresses and heels. They want to please you—to introduce them to their culture, traditions, and overall way of life. On top of it, you’ll find “enough” of the western culture that you won’t feel so out of place.

Is it perfect?


You’ll definitely find more modern living in Central European countries like Prague, Budapest, or anywhere in Poland. At the same time, some of those places are beginning to show signs of the western culture seeping in—evidenced by the many McDonald’s, Starbucks, Pizza Huts, etc. that have moved in all over the place.

Ukraine has McDonald’s and Domino’s, but so far has stayed clear of allowing Starbucks to set up shop.

Kiev is a wonderful city with a lot to offer.

If you’re out in the far east of Europe, you owe it to yourself not to miss it.

Good luck,

Update For 2020: 

Honestly, the problem with cities like Prague and Budapest is that they are getting quite dirty to the tourism. The city can’t maintain the cleanliness standards as more and more tourists flock there. Walking around Budapest in November of 2018 and July of 2019, I just remember everything smelling like piss, trash everywhere…it just wasn’t all that nice. Whereas Kiev is actually getting more and more clean, for the time being, at least.

Kharkiv is about 450 km from Kiev. How can it be close?

    It’s reasonable by train.

    Hey There,

other sites generally just talk about kiev and odessa, maybe kharkiv… never even heard of Dnipropetrovsk, always nice to learn something new 🙂

    Will it be possible


Kiev shouldn’t be on the list since its way too big to meet anyone, the crowds are overwhelming, the prices are high for everything and English in reality is spoken very little; even in the train station.

    If a big city is too overwhelming you should stick to not traveling abroad.


I love Ukrainian


I was in Odessa and Kiev ( in mid August 2018 ) for 3 days each out of a 3 week holiday in Europe. Kiev the capital reminded me of any big city ( I am from Houston Texas USA w/ pop of 4-6 million ) but it is very beautiful. I became ill midway thru my vacation so i just stayed in the resort/spa ( top notch ) while in Kiev. Odessa was also very beautiful with lots of culture ( i e Oprea house ). The language barrier was challenging. Beautiful ladies everywhere in both cities. Planned on meeting 2/3 ladies at each city i met thru sites but they flaked out ( i anticapted, this why i only stayed 3 days ) and is a big problem of ladies being flaky. I would go back to Odessa and maybe try Lviv. My trip consisted of Amsterdam/Ibiza/Barcelona/Rome/Odessa/Kuev. Would return to Ibiza, Ámsterdam and Odessa.

Prague and Budapest are NOT countries…they are cities. Much of your info is a bad copy / paste from other resources. You neglected to talk about all the Indians, Saudis, Muslims, Turks, Africans, Chinese that are creating bad situations for “western men”. I experienced this in Kharkiv, Kirovograd, Odessa, Cherkasy and other cities with reputable Universties. Stupid Ukraine girls are falling for this “exotic” man syndrome. These guys come to fuck Ukraine girls – thats it!
The rest of the women are busy scamming men on those paid sites like you mentioned and more.
You can keep your Ukraine girls. Czech girls, Hungarian, Slovakian, far more beautiful and sincere.
As for living, Ukraine is not cheaper for foreigners than Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland. In Ukraine its still a scam at every opportunity. And this is 2019!


    Absolutely right.
    Theory is sweet, reality is a pain in the ass. Go there, check by yourself, try to unfold and then when you find the way out you’ll know better what a UA “lady” hides inside.
    Oh, not to forget… their most familiar English word is “Generosity”, trust me!!!
