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.

To whom it may concern,
I would highly recommend anyone wishing to travel to the Ukraine to contact Tanya and Igor of "Unipress Travel" for all their accommodation, visa and travel needs in the Ukraine. During my initial contacts via email, Tanya was extremely helpful giving
me all the information needed for my stay in the Ukraine and also organizing and smoothing the way when I finally arrived.
When I arrived I found that the VIP and Pickup service, that I had organized through Unipress, made my transition through customs a breeze and smoothed away my fears of Ukrainian bureaucracy ruining my stay, and then it was into the capable hands of Igor to speed me to my hotel.
Your service and dedication to your clients welfare is better treatment than I have found in many Western countries during my travels, and so I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wishing for a smooth and uneventful journey to and in, your country.
Yours faithfully

Bryan Roberts
