Ukrainian Transport Information


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.
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.

Hello, I'm sorry it took me so long to send this note but I wanted to thank everyone involved in making my to Keiv so enjoyable. The apartment was very nice, especially the location, Independance Square is a very beautiful and interesting place, the city of Keiv is amazing, so many pretty girls and wonderful buildings.

The taxi service was very nice also, not being able to speak or read the language, having an english speaking driver (Alex) was really a great help. But the best part of my trip was getting to know about the people of the Ukraine, I must admit that I have not traveled internationally before and I felt very comfortable with the people there, they are truely good and friendly people.

I would reccommend your service to anyone and would urge anyone who might be considering a trip to the Ukraine to go and have a wonderful time, don't worry about communication the people are friendly and will always help you if they can. I hope to use your service again in the future. Thank You.
