Eat[edit][add listing]

A great place to get a full Ukrainian experience and meal along with homebrewed beers is Stary Mlyn (Старий Млин - Old Mill). Decorated with all the traditional elements from Ukrainian folklore, it makes up a must stop in your visit for a deeply compelling impression. Menus in English and friendly staff are available. You can find this restaurant on Krushelnitskoy street (Крушельницької) passing the overpass bridge if you're coming from Downtown.

If you're craving Pizza, Flamingo (Фламінго) in front of the NOVUS supermarket in Anatoliya Zhivova (Живова)street has English speaking staff to go with their menu and a tasty selection of stone oven pizzas at more than affordable prices.

Now, when a taste of the near Orient is what you crave, Ali Baba (АЛІ-БАБА) serves shawarmas in which you can add extra meat or cheese. Practical for eating and walking, be sure not to go there starving since it can get crowded sometimes, though its two locations downtown relieve this. One on Valova (Валова)in the very City Center and another one not far on Rus'ka (Руська).

People missing some fried chicken or cheeseburgers worry not. Chicken Hut has your fast food delicacies covered along with pizzas and a very tasty Tai-lavash or thai chicken wrap. Selling beer and open twenty-four hours, it's a great place to end a merry drinking night with a midnight snack (or early breakfast). Over at the Ostroskoho and Pyrohova crossing, yes, in Downtown.

All these places count with Wifi that is free of charge.

Drink[edit][add listing]

A good place to drink is the Koza Bar. It is an hip students-bar. Free Wi-Fi of course. Another good option is "Finey Mesto". Outside the centre you have Patrick Irish Pub which is good for watching football matches on their large screens.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

Hotels Galychyna, Hotel Aligator, Hotel Ternopil. These hotels are some of the more expensive in the city. Other good, cheaper option are: Hotel Monaco (wifi works), nice rooms with restaurant on-site. Hotel Versal (wifi works), somewhat shabbier than nearby Hotel Monaco, on-site restaurant. Hotel Globus (problematic wifi), nice rooms with a restaurant on-site. Hotel Bratislava (problematic wifi), nice rooms but no restaurant and Hotel Pallada (wifi works), lovely rooms, restaurant on-site. Unlike in western Europe where you will usually have smoking and non-smoking hotel rooms, in Ukraine it appears that all hotel rooms are non-smoking, not ideal if you are a smoker.
