You can park this way, however it would be much easier to find a street that allows parking and a small fee. You can purchase the ticket from a machine at a cost of around 10 UAH/hour. You can choose to park in a public garage, they are harder to find and will be at a higher rate.

    Domestic one-way rentals within Ukraine are possible. Some restrictions and charges do apply. International one-way car hire is also permitted and should be requested at the time of booking.
