Hi all.
I'm Kiev local sharing natural approach to mother nature (permaculture, organic, bionic stuff)

There is small national park (called somewhat like 'landscape reserve of local value') located 42 km far east from Kiev city - called Sulimovskiy park, located right near village Sulimovka. It is unique, underrated tiny eco region with big history and mystery about this place comes from 16 century and related to Ivan Sulima - national hero, lord and warrior who have built residence here with big trees park around.

Nowdays Sulimovka is small ukrainian village surrounded with natural forest and cottage buildings around the forest. It has all communications available - transport, gas, electricity, internet, water, firewood supply etc. It is really underrated eco region very close to Kiev with fresh air and unique nature around the spot. Everyone who visit this place get very good impressions of it, not so many people know about this place even in Kiev.

It has great recreational, healing potential, no other places so close to Kiev cannot contest with Sulimovka. This place worth to have something like healing center or recreational facility but due to political realities in Ukraine it has not.

I found many spots on sale allotted for cottage building around the place, size of spots are 0.25 acres or less. Price comes from $3500 to $6000, $3500 (for 0.25 acres) is very good price for this region considering it is so close to Kiev, just 30 min by car or bus. Due permanent crisis in Ukraine real estate market is down and prices are tend to decrease.

Considering Sulimovka has great recreational potential and nice location may be it's worth buying land here for small recreational tours biz or any personal use. In both cases i put myself in position of partner or/and personal agent/manager/assistant for such affairs. Im not affiliated with any real estate agencies and not interesting in getting some quick profit.

Nowdays Kiev have big amount of tourist visitors from Europe, USA due rising interest in our culture, ethnic, people, low prices for food and goods and many other reasons. Dating tours, restaurant and Chernobil (post nuclear town) take big % of all Kiev tours. But not so many foreigners able to enhance their experience in eco, recreational, healing, active tours near Kiev. I'm talking about one day tours or 1-2 days tours. Thus such places as Sulimovka can have such potential.

Having such spot of land with some basic building, infrastructure opens possibility to arrange one day recreational eco tours for Kiev visitors. It can be hiking or biking tours with some local organic meal food included and basic guide. Details and marketing not given here.

So looking for possible 100% investment for such affair. Pre-position myself as mentioned before - manager, partner or on agreement.
There is no other such special places near Kiev with such great potential.  


On this video you can see some observation on Sulimovka forest comes from some real estate agency, only video with quadcopter perspective, you can see the forest and whole starting from 30 sec:



Here i found video biking through forest:



There is my video footage - cleaning park before early spring season and shooting some eco crimes - illegal dry grass burning.

What is the law regarding the ownership of land by foreign Nationals ?
Apart from the KGB not being allowed to (joke! )
Have you thought about reinitiating tree beekeeping ?

1. In a brief, first of all land in Ukraine comes with 'purpose of use' label, like there are 2 (in reality more) all land divides into two big groups, ''land for personal non-agrocuture" use (like cottege, for living, for personal gardering) and "land for agroculture use" - that is 'purpose of use'. So mentioned land is labeled as ' personal non-agrocuture use' and nowdays have no limitation for non-resident to buy, own, sale etc. Land for agroculture use has certain limitation. Some say such land (non-agro)  for non resident should be no big then 0.5 acres but not so sure. Land for non-agro use have no limitation for non-resident.

Land listed in my post is free to buy for any non-resident i can tell it for sure. I read the laws and asked directly from lawyer.

2. Concerning KGB (joke) yeah there is big rate of corruption of Ukraine but it is very specific and affected all ex-USSR countries, its not very friendly, tricky, not transparent regulations but somehow people find way to deal/live with it. And if you have like small biz its ok, you are free of KGB monitoring (joke) and issues.  Overall Kiev is 100% safe euro nice city. Good attitude to foreigners.

3. Yeah i heard if you mean natural log hive beekeeping. Lot of people in Ukraine do beekeeping i can tell for sure that Ukraine is beekeeping country. Its like the only sphere still free of taxes and government regulation. In my region (Sulimovka) lotta people do beekeeping, its good region for beekeeping, forest are full of linden tree flowers and many commercial or home beekeepers are around Sulimovka. I even can tell more about this market in Ukraine.

Concerning "reinitiating tree beekeeping" its super cool but as for personal occupation and may be have some commercial potential. Natural honey is super cool with natural hive and natural keeping, high-end honey.

So just have specified some details, yeah there is no limitation for non residents for buying such land but there are some specific taxes (for non resident), some spends that can increase price slightly not much, ill get more details soon from realtor in first video.

$3500 for 0.25 acres near national park, 30 mins from Kiev is super good price. Regular price for this region starts at $7000 for 0.15 acres.

I can say that by own ukrainian laws every, once again, every citizen (resident) can get up to 3 acres (for agro) or 0.5 for non agro use for free but the problem is that it is a subject of corruption and free land get only some ''special" people with connections. May be land listed in first video was obtained by free distribution and now it is on sale but its ok anyway about the price.
 
Get me the mayor's office! I need to tell her about this tiny ad:
