Ukrainian Transport Information

Air

Majority of big cities in Ukraine has air connection with Kiev. Tickets for domestic flights for non-Ukrainians might be more expensive than for Ukrainians. Best air connection with other countries goes via Kiev.

Some domestic flights are not very reliable in terms of schedule - it is a good idea to make sure that the flight you have chosen is made on regular basis.

Please, note most domestic air tickets can be obtained in Ukraine only.


 
Extensive network of railroad connects Ukraine with many European and Asian countries. Trains are cheap though slow and not very comfortable. First class compartments are mostly air-conditioned (very important in summertime) and have 2 berths (some trains do not have 1st class option), second class has 4 berths. We recommend to buy tickets for the whole compartment, especially when traveling alone. Prices for foreign citizens and Ukrainians are the same. Trains are the most popular and easy way to make intercity trips in Ukraine.
 
Sea
The major part of sea connection is made via the Black sea ports of Odessa, Sevastopol and Yalta. The passenger vessels sailing between the Crimea peninsula and Odessa do not have stable schedule and rates, currently. Therefore tickets for these cruises and ferries are hardly bookable. The major part of ferries serves Istanbul, Turkey destination. They provide with several categories of accommodation, meals, entertainment programs, etc. On the top of it, ferries make cargo transportation including cars, vans etc.
 
Public City Transport
Operates from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. Bus, trolley bus and tram system is rather slow, but is a cheap way to travel within cities. Prices range from 30 kopecks to 2 hryvnas.

Taxi is comparatively cheap for Russian speaking passengers. Probably everywhere situation with taxi is like this if one speaks a foreign language price for taxi goes up immediately. There are numerous taxi services, orders are taken via phone. There can be hired a taxi right on the street simply by putting out your hand. Be wary of taking a car having more than one passenger. Price is to be agreed upon beforehand.

Отзывы:

Thank you for all your help regarding my visit to the Ukraine. It was indeed a wonderful trip, even without hot water. I was sad to leave and look forward to returning.

I found the area surrounding Kyiv to be very beautiful. The people in Kyiv were very friendly and I have told my friends that the Ukrainian people are a very proud and kind people.

I took many photos and have placed them on our college's intranet for others to see. I believe I have more than 500 photos to distribute. I have attached several for you.

My friend, Natalyia, took me many places in Kyiv and Uman. I viewed Independence Center, St. Sophia Cathedral, St. Michael's Cathedral, our hotel was close to St. Andrew's church, I got to view the World War II war memorial, the Afghanistan War memorial, and many more wonderful sites.

Oksana, I believe you have a wonderful country and am happy I had an opportunity to visit, and look forward to visiting again, maybe Odessa next time. I heard much about your city also.

Again, thank you for your help, and please feel free to contact me if there is anything that I could do for Unipress.

Sincerely,

Dan, USA
