Kiev Warnings and Dangers: 76 reviews and 49 photos

Warn for swindle and defraud.

DJ's sometimes ask money if you want them to play a number of a certain artist.

People like taxidrivers ALWAYS ask to much.

ALWAYS ask first how much something is.

There was a time I had to pay about 2 hrivna;
I placed a 5 hrivna-banknote on the table (thinking it would be enough); the waiter asked something with 2 hrivna; I searched for a 2 hrivna-banknote and WHILE I was searching for it the waiter took the 5-hrivna-banknote away. After I placed a 2-hrivna-banknote on the table, he said it was ok.
I asked where my 5-hrivna-banknote was, but he behaved as if he didn't know where I was talking about.
Retrospectively I should have to knock him down for this.
