DRESSING STANDARDS

  • In general, but for the few places - churches, public/municipal offices, schools, high-class restaurants and nightclubs, hotels’ public areas and the like - there are no limitations on the dress code in Ukraine except two: current weather conditions and common sense.
  • Ukrainians, especially ladies, do dress up. But for the majority of situations a regular traveller might find themselves in, casual and smart casual will be just fine.

Churches and Shrines

  • All operating Orthodox churches require ladies to cover their heads; nothing special - a scarf (or even bandana for a tourist) will do.
  • Bare arms and legs, hence tops and shorts both for men and women are inappropriate, as well as mini- skirts for ladies and sports costumes for both men and ladies.
  • Long sleeves, loose clothes is the best bet. Nothing too open, or short, or tight, or in bright (acid) colours.
  • In acting churches and important sanctuaries, for example, Pochaiv and/or Sviatogorsk Lavra, women are required to wear a skirt, no trousers are allowed. A skirt can normally be borrowed at the entrance and can be put on the top of the trousers/jeans.
  • Dress code for the churches that operate as museums (St. Sophia, for example) is more flexible. Tourists and locals are dressed more “frivolously” (by religious standards) there - casual dress will be fine.
  • Observance of conservative dress code in any church, out of respect to local traditions, will be highly appreciated.
  • Most of the time the biggest problem while visiting operating churches are the so-called babushkas – old ladies, self-appointed as “order guards”, who harass anyone behaving/being dressed inappropriate, according to their personal opinion. This is especially a problem in smaller villages and in shrines.Many priests and superiors consider this hassle inadmissible, but nothing is done to stop it.

Day to day travel around Kyiv and other large cities

  • Anything in compliance with current weather conditions and common sense will be fine for getting around Kyiv and other large cities.
  • No one is going to care too much what people are wearing on the streets unless it looks ridiculous for a season or for a city environment (say, sports costume in a pub).
  • Comfort should be the top criterion here, especially when choosing shoes. There are many hills and cobbled streets, especially in the old city, and Kyiv is best explored by walk. So do pack comfortable shoes or trainers.
  • Winters are cold, snowy and windy in Ukraine. So
    • warm cloths - sweaters,
    • coats, and
    • accessories - a scarf, a hat, gloves,
    • as well as boots or waterproof shoes are required.
  • In hot summer, people get undressed substantially, so in high temperature it’s not a problem to wander around in shorts and tops, even in Kyiv.
  • Otherwise «seaside fashion» might look ridiculous in any large city (not that it would stop some locals).
  • T-shirts and jeans and trainers are absolutely fine. But please, do not wear socks with flip-flops on the streets of Kyiv!
  • Local men almost do not wear hats, but for baseball caps in summer and knitted/fur hats in cold winters. So any man in a large cowboy hat will immediately stand out as a tourist.
  • Local ladies tend to go out very dressy, even for a quick shopping in the grocery next door. Some of them early in the morning look like they have not been at home yet after the last night’s party. Still, this is the regular dressing style in Ukraine. Girls
    • wear high,
    • vey high and
    • extremely high heels everywhere,
    • and use bright make-up any time of the day

Countryside

  • When going to a village or a countryside, get dressed more conservatively. Bright colours or an unusual fashion design will attract attention that a foreign tourist won’t anyway lack
  • Poor infrastructure must be considered, too, especially in winter, spring or autumn. Absence or poor condition of paved roads make it essential to have proper shoes and to not be afraid of spoiling them with mud, dirt etc.

Seaside

  • Seaside dress-code is the most relaxed. You can see people wearing anything on the streets of resort towns, even swimming costumes (in the best case - with pashmina or a towel).
  • This is the only place where the flip-flops are appropriate outdoors.
  • Swimming costumes of any design is appropriate, but bikinis are most popular among locals.

Cafes, Restaurants and Nightclubs

  • In budget and mid-range restaurants as well as cafes casual dressing is fine, especially during the day. Most probably no one will even care.
  • However, you might feel uncomfortable in shorts in the evening, so no matter, which eatery you visit, jeans or trousers are always preferred in the evening to shorts. Sport costumes are inappropriate.
  • Local men will most probably be wearing jeans or trousers, shirts and/or t-shirts in pubs and restaurants. Ladies will dress up, out of habit.
  • First-class restaurants along with many night clubs will most probably enforce the dress-code and refuse an entry to anyone dressed inappropriate.
  • They will always require trousers at night. Some will insist on jackets/shirts.

Opera and Philharmonics

  • Classic Houses’ dressing standards have substantially depreciated in Ukraine lately.
  • Unless it’s a special event, there will be no evening gowns and tuxedos in the Opera and Philharmonics. Traditionalists and those who can afford it do prefer to dress up. But most visitors stick to smart casual.
  • Just like in high-end restaurants and night-clubs, shorts, sports costumes and flip-flops are the biggest «no-no».
  • The rest depends on each visitor’s understanding of «comme il faut» and comfort in the interior of velvet, gold and crystal that is common to the Classic Houses.
  • For a man, a jacket and slacks or trousers, and closed shoes will be fine. If the weather is hot, a shirt and trousers with no jacket are also acceptable. A tie is appropriate, but not required.
  • For a lady, a blouse or a jacket with trousers or a skirt, or a gown are perfect. You will see many local ladies wearing high heels here and lots of jewellery.

PACKING FOR UKRAINE

  • Practicality should be the primary consideration when packing. Clothes should be comfortable, durable,versatile, and easy-to-care-for.
  • Clothes will undergo a great deal of wear and tear due to the harsh weather conditions, semi-automaticwashing machines, hand washings, and frequent use.
  • In general, fewer outfits are necessary than in the United States. Bring clothes that are easily mixed and matched. Business attire will also be necessary.
  • Travelers should keep in mind that finding wardrobe replacements or supplements in Ukraine for a reasonable price is often difficult.
  • A loop or chain sewn inside the collar for all coats/raincoats/jackets is a must. These items will be checked into cloakrooms at museums, theaters, libraries, etc., and many cloakroom attendants may not accept items lacking a loop from which to hang them.

In addition to clothing essentials, the following are recommended:

  • Money belt
  • Swiss army knife (in your checked luggage)
  • Sturdy walking shoes
  • Dress shoes
  • Bathrobe
  • Sewing kit
  • Extra eyeglasses/sunglasses
  • Business suits and other dressy attire

For winter, these items are also recommended:

  • Warm, high, waterproof, fleece-lined boots big enough to wear with heavy wool socks
  • Warm, lined slippers with soles
  • Warm hat
  • Lined, waterproof gloves and lightweight wool gloves
  • Warm scarves
  • Thermal long underwear
  • Heavy wool/thermal socks
  • Toiletries/Miscellaneous
  • The opening of foreign-owned stores as well as increased supplies of imported goods has diminished the need for travelers to bring all their toiletry items with them from the United States.
  • However, these items are generally much more expensive than in the United States and supplies can sometimes be limited in smaller cities.
