Romance Guide: Mykolaiv
It is no secret that the head office of the Slavic Girl Marriage Agency is situated in the southern part of Ukraine in a city called Mykolaiv (Nikolaev in Russian transcription). Have you heard that the second name of it is “the city of brides”? If no, I invite you to get acquainted with this remarkable city.
Historical background of the name
In ancient times the major trade routes were crossing the region of modern Mykolaiv. When the duke Potiomkin discovered this strategically vital territory, he decided to found a city here. The name of the city was given by the Saint Nicholas who was the patron of travelers and traders. Mykolaiv became an important shipbuilding knot and many workers came here from the distant corners of the country. As most of them were bachelors, the government ordered to bring women here to boost the development and settlement of the region. Hundreds of young unmarried women were brought to Mykolaiv and got married the locals.
Unfortunately, the great shipbuilding plants are mostly closed nowadays as they lose foreign investments. The area is specializing in the agriculture and IT technologies. Besides, many US hosting companies have their head offices here. And still, they say that the modern Mykolaiv is a city where the biggest number of beautiful ladies in Ukraine live. If you don’t believe it, I invite you to come and make sure yourself :)
The city of romance
People say that Mykolaiv has a wonderfully calm life pace and a great atmosphere for romantic walks by the river and evenings in the cafes. It is very green in summer and magically golden red in autumn. If you ever decide to come to Mykolaiv to meet a lady, the following information about the interesting places to visit will be useful for you.
The best Zoo in Ukraine
Even if a lady has already been to the zoo a dozen times, she will not refuse to visit it once more) The territory is big and numerous attractions are available. Every season they bring some new animals and develop new areas for inhabitants. A vast number of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish and rodents will amaze you by their behavior and fancy look. Of course the most interesting period is when spring comes and many animals and birds like pink flamingos begin the courtship. Sometimes there are even small bears, hippos and tigers born in our zoo! If you know that Ukrainian lady loves fluffy cuties, then this place is a wonderful idea for a date with her :)
Romantic evening in a theater
Mykolaiv is a city where every person loving cultural events may find some attraction. Symphonic orchestra concerts, theater plays, jazz band performances, national dance festivals, social dance shows and many others. If you decide to spend an evening with your lady and to please your taste for beauty, I suggest you to choose one of our drama theaters to visit. Mykolayiv Academic Russian Drama Theater is a temple where one of the oldest Ukrainian theater collectives pleases the viewers since 1934. The second one - Ukrainian Academic Theater of Drama and Musical Comedy is a place where you may see the performances based on Ukrainian national plays and novels. An evening in a theater will never leave you and your lady indifferent.
Yacht trip for two
Although the era of a shipbuilding in the region has already passed, Mykolaiv is still a wonderful place for yachtsmen. A peaceful harbor and ideal conditions for training attract many people from the region to go yachting, kayaking, sailing and kite surfing. An ideal romance date is to take your lady for a yacht trip for two. Fruits, champagne and different appetizers will make it even more pleasant. If you do not like an idea of a yacht trip, you may invite your Ukrainian lady for a romantic boat trip with jazz or violin performers on board. These boats are doing trips from the seafront where the main street ends.
Quite walk in a city center
If you just came and haven’t seen much of the city yet, a good idea for a date is to walk in the city center. The main street of Mykolaiv is the longest pedestrian street in Ukraine. The main shops, restaurants, night clubs and galleries are situated there. You may find a place according to your taste.
