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.

Dear Irina,
First of all, let me apologize for being so long in writing to THANK YOU for the superb organization of our wonderful stay in the Ukraine back in August. We have nothing but praise for the professional yet very friendly way in which everybody treated us and keep fond memories of all the people who helped make our stay so special!

I'd like to wish you in particular a Merry Christmas and a very happy New
Year! It's a shame we met for such a short time, but your invisible hand
was looking after us all throughout the trip and was instrumental and making
you country an unforgettable experience for us!

I'd also be most grateful if you could pass the message on to Alex in Kiev
who took such good care of us and to his charming wife Victoria whom we've

Merry Christmas and once again Thanks for everything!
