Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

Maybe, as many building date from Soviet times and don't have an elevator. - Jun 16, 2017
The city is not very accessible, but it gets better every day. Every new building is made to EU standards. It's much better than it was years ago. - Jan 28, 2013
There are some pretty uneven roads, but some public transport has wheelchair access. Smaller restaurants and stores are not accessible. - Oct 28, 2012
A lot of difficulty. Ramps are few and far between, as are handicap-equippedrestrooms. - Oct 6, 2012
They might get their wheelchair stuck in a pot hole or in cobblestones in Old Town. I don't think the embassy has complied with wheelchair accessibility, now that I think about it... - Sep 8, 2010
Even the "bicycle paths" have curbs, so some difficulty. - Aug 9, 2009
