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.

I want to thank you for the great trip you put together for us in Ukraine May 4th to May 16th. We had a fabulous time. All your drivers and guides were excellent. Victor did a great job getting us from Kyiv to Odesa and from Odesa to Yalta, and pointed out interesting sights along the way. And Eugene is a real treasure. Probably the best guide we have ever had.

The Rus Hotel in Kyiv was very nice. The location might be a little out of the way for some, but we did not mind the walk to the main restaurant area. The Hotel Chernoye was okay, but a little shabby. Some people might prefer something a little bit nicer and maybe a more central location. And the
Bristol Hotel was very nice. And the Boryspol Airport hotel was just fine, and great service.

We were very impressed with Ukraine. Kyiv is a great city. And Odessa was so much more than we ever expected. And we had no idea how beautiful the Crimea is.

And the food was fantastic everywhere.

Great country, great guides and drivers combined with your excellent service in arranging the details, made this a fantastic trip. I highly recommend your company for anyone who wants to go to Ukraine.
