I didn't see a Ukraine forum here, so thought I would try the Russia forum.

I'm on my way to Kharkov in a week. I had an apartment lined up which recently fell through. Wondering if anyone has suggestions for tracking a clean, safe, comfortable place down.

Also, has anyone used the Mordinson agency?

Incredibly expensive, but full service. I'm so frustrated with the problems I have thus far that I'm ready to try a full service agency.

Thanks.

Yes, I know a guy who owns and rents apartments in Kharkov. I have rented with him multiple times, and he is trustworthy. His name is Dmitri Prokopenko, and his web site is KharkovApartmentsForRent.com. He's part of an overall agency called "Ukraine Tour". You can email him at ukrainetour@ukrainetour.com. You can see a bunch of his apartments on the web site. Tell him that "Scott Smith" referred you, and that I told you that he would give you a good price. He has a ton of apartments, so you will balance price with location. The closer to the center of the city, the more $$.

I will be renting an apartment from him on May 8-12. My girl and I will be there to celebrate the big Victory Day holiday. Should be a blast!

Also, has anyone used the Mordinson agency?

I have never heard of this agency. But if you are looking for a full service "Girl Friday" (Interpreter/city guide/assistant/etc.), then I strongly, strongly recommend a gal by the name of Irina Vasilenko. Her web site is KharkovInterpreter.com. She will make your life so much simpler, it is WELL worth the investment.

If you have specific questions, send me a PM and I'll be happy to help.

Good luck on your adventure.
