Living in Khmelnytskyi

Until 1954, the Ukrainian city of Khmelnytskyi was known as Proskuriv. "The Former Proskuriv", as it is still resolutely called by many, is a city with a penchant for changing its name; when first founded, it was named Ploskyrivtsi. Despite its slowness to settle on a name, though, the city itself is a long-established cultural and administrative center and home to almost 300,000 people. Expats living in Khmelnytskyi can wander through the architecturally rich city center, take in the history of its museums and enjoy the lively restaurants and friendly atmosphere. A first trip around the center for any new expat living in Khmelnytskyi should take in the well-preserved Proskurivska Street and the Church of Nativity of the Virgin – which locals will tell you is the city's first stone building. This is also a great area for anyone who wants to get an authentic feeling of Ukrainian culture, food and hospitality. Interestingly, expats in Khmelnytskyi will find that Russian is commonly spoken alongside Ukrainian, a hint to the city's international links.

Moving to Khmelnytskyi

While the city does have an airport, it is not currently served by charter flights, so unless expatriates moving to Khmelnytskyi have access to a private plane the nearest airport is in Kiev. From there it is possible to take a train or minibus on to Khmelnytskyi. The city's railway station is somewhat uninspiring (although Kiev's more than makes up for it) and expats moving to Khmelnytskyi by train will have to wait for the city's center to get a sense of what expat life in Khmelnytskyi will be like. Having said that, we have a good number of pieces on the InterNations website written by other expatriates, giving their experiences of life abroad. These are certainly worth browsing, as is the Expat Magazine. This collection of articles, also on the InterNations website, explores topics ranging from working abroad to expat finance and cross-cultural communication.
