Ivano-Frankivsk (Russian – Ivano-Frankovsk) is regional center in western Ukraine. The first time the city was mentioned in 1662 when it received a Magdeburg right. The old name of the city is Stanislaviv (Staniskaviv – in Russian). Ivano-Frankivsk was built with an aim to protect people from Crimean Tatars’ raids – strong fortress of the Pototskyis – Polish landlords on Halych lands was constructed.
Ivano-Frankivsk lies in the Precarpathian plain where fast waters of the Nadvirnianska Bystrytsia and Solotvynska Bystrytsia join together. Ivano-Frankivsk is the regional center and one of the largest economic and cultural centers in the west of Ukraine. The city was a part of Poland, a part of Austro-Hungarian Empire, a part of West Ukrainian People’s Republic and now it belongs to Ukraine. The city has very rich history, which mostly makes interest for Ukrainians.
In 1962 the city Stanislaviv was renamed into Ivano-Frankovsk after a famous writer and public figure Ivan Franko.
In fact the city is located on the backward part of Ukraine where there’s no industry at all, even light industry is very rare. Agriculture predominates but it is bad paid. That is why residents of this area had to look for job in other parts of Ukraine, like Kiev or Odessa or work in Europe, mostly in Poland, Italy, Spain and Czech Republic.
Absence of good education in this area allows residents of Ivano-Frankivsk to find good job neither in rich parts of Ukraine nor in Europe. The city of Ivano-Frankivsk is known as the city of labor resources.
As you understand these features and circumstances make influence on travel business of Ivano-Frankivsk as well as apartments rental business, as the part of travel business. Ivano-Frankivsk residents offer rooms for rent, which are the part of their apartments. The example is loan lord has 2-rooms apartment in the city center and give not all apartment for rent but only one room for the apartment because in other room the loan lord living himself. This way the tourist gets clean and nice room but toilet, bathroom and kitchen should be shared with loan lord or other tourists who rent the other room if apartment is multi-rooms.
