In the nine months of 2019, some UAH 61 million, or US$2.58 million in tourist tax was paid to the city's budget.

Kyiv City State Administration says it works to improve the quality of services provided to tourists.

"[Municipal services] visit problem hostels in keeping with the approved schedule. So far, 105 such premises have been checked. And only about a dozen regularly pay tourist and other types of taxes and observe health and safety regulations," Chairperson of the administration's standing commission for culture Viktoria Mukha said.
