Transfer from L’viv airport to the hotel
We will try to organise transport from L’viv airport to the Hotel George and Ivan-Franko for participants arriving in L’viv on June 2. Please let us know the flight number and exact time of your arrival by mail to email@example.com.
We are sorry but we cannot offer pickup service for participants arriving at an earlier or later date. For questions regarding airport taxis or bus transport to the city centre please contact Vasyl Lavnyy firstname.lastname@example.org. An airport taxi to city centre will cost approx. 100 UAH.
The electric current in Ukraine is 220 V, although there might be voltage fluctuations (or even power interruptions; it might be useful to bring a torch with you). Plugs are the European type with two round pins. You will need an adapter for the 3-poles plugs common in Switzerland as well as for any other type of plugs.
The hygienic conditions in Ukraine do not everywhere meet the Western European standard. Toilets may be simple and during excursion you might have to use pit latrines.
Drinking water: we advise not to drink water from the tap unless you can boil it.
Eating and drinking
Traditional Ukrainian meals are sometimes rather heavy. Ukrainians like to eat lots of bacon (in particular salted and flavored fat) and meat – mainly pork – and they often cook with bacon fat. If you do not eat pork, please send an e-mail to email@example.com!
Drinking of vodka is part of the social life in Ukraine, and it is tradition to give a toast with each glass of vodka. Toasting is a complex matter and follows certain rules, e.g. in the sequence of toasts given (at least in large company and at the beginning of the evening). Of course, people will accept if you say that you do not drink alcohol.
