Power outages can cause significant inconvenience, especially if you need to recharge your phone or continue working. For such cases, there are special maps that will help you find establishments that run on generators.

Maps to find establishments operating during power outages


One of the most popular tools is LUN's “Useful Map”. It covers establishments all over Ukraine, including coffee shops, restaurants, coworking spaces, gas stations, beauty salons, sports complexes, and post offices. Users can also use convenient filters to help them sort the available establishments according to their needs. After selecting a location on the map, the user receives information about the address, opening hours, and availability of a generator.


Residents of Lviv, Kyiv, Rivne, Uzhhorod, and Zaporizhzhia can use Stroom Map. This tool works similarly to the LUN map, but provides only the address and phone number of the selected location. Importantly, the map also shows the locations of the facilities that are in the shelter and open during the air raid.

How do I find the nearest indestructibility points?


In addition to commercial establishments, Ukraine has organized “Points of Resilience” - places where everyone can use light, communication, heat and water. To find such places, there is a separate map that additionally shows pharmacies, restaurants, gas stations, and other establishments with generators. It is important to note that some of these facilities may provide services for money.


To avoid manually searching for the nearest Unbreakable Point, you can use a special chatbot on Telegram that will show you the nearest facility after you enter your address or geolocation.


We remind you! Ukraine has created an interactive map of Internet providers that will allow you to check whether you will have Internet access in the event of a power outage. Read how to check if your provider is ready for blackouts and which internet service is better to choose in order to stay connected when the power goes out in our previous article.

Daria Rogova, Head of Insurance at Visit Ukraine


When planning a trip to Ukraine, first of all, you need to take care of the appropriate insurance policy, because any foreign insurance automatically terminates after crossing the Ukrainian border. In this case, we recommend that you take out insurance specifically covering military risks, which will cover not only standard medical care/treatment/diagnosis, etc. but also accidents and injuries caused by passive or direct military risks.

You can take out such insurance on the Visit Ukraine website. Follow the link and choose an insurance policy with the appropriate coverage and indemnity amount for the required period.




We recommend purchasing it for a safe and comfortable trip to Ukraine: 


Visit Ukraine Insurance – safe travel in Ukraine (insurance covering military risks);

Visit Ukraine Legal advice – comprehensive legal support on entry to Ukraine;
Visit Ukraine Tickets – bus and train tickets to/from Ukraine;

Visit Ukraine Tours – the largest online database of tours to Ukraine for every taste;

Visit Ukraine Hotels – hotels for a comfortable stay in Ukraine;

Visit Ukraine Merch – patriotic clothing and accessories with worldwide delivery.
