      Airport to city centre

      Kiev Jan 27, 2017 at 7:01 AM

      Hi guys,

      Can anyone tell me how to get from Boryspil airport to the centre of Kyiv by public transport.

      I did it once before in 2005 but the airport has changed a lot since then.

      I believe I can get a bus to the train station and then the metro into the centre (Maidan).

      Can someone tell me which number bus and where to get it, or any other ideas.

      Travel from Rzeszow to Chernivtsi

      by robbie46 Online Now Dec 13, 2011 at 9:24 AM

      I am landing in Rzeszow on January 9th 2011. I want to travel to Chernivtsi. I know I can get a bus or train to Przemysl and walk across the border. I also know I can get a bus or train to Lvov, and then to Chernivtsi. But does anyone know if there is a bus which goes direct to Chernivtsi? Or maybe a taxi when I cross the Ukrainian border.

    • Need some Assist to get to Jasina or Yasinya

      My father was born there, is elderly and would like to return. We'll be in both Munich and Prague in September. Any suggestions for the very best travel from either location would be appreciated. Closest airports with a reasonable driving distance, am happy to rent a car, just a 9 hour drive would be difficult.

      Thank you in advance for any assistance you can offer.

    • Car Rental in Chernivtsi

      by LS18 Online Now Apr 27, 2009 at 11:33 AM

      Thanks for previous advice on getting from Chernivtsi to Lviv by bus and train. I've now decided that I'd like to visit Kamyanets on route and given that I have limited time, think car rental is the best option. (I understand roads and traffic arent great but I've driven in Asia, Africa, South America etc so know what to expect)

      My problem is finding a car rental company that will allow one way rental--pick up Chernivtsi and drop off Lviv. I did find one company who agreed to do it but I think they changed their mind-they've stopped answering my emails!

      Where can I get details of car rental companies in Chernivtsi or maybe a travel agent who can help arrange this?

    • Chisinau to Lviv - Chernivtsi stop off?

      by LS18 Online Now Apr 8, 2009 at 10:07 AM

      I'll be travelling from Chisinau to Lviv in June and have just found that the bus takes 20 hours. I've looked on the map and Chernivtsi looks a good place to stop off. If so, I'd then like to know what the options are to travel onto Lviv. I'd consider car rental if anyone knows of a company that does one way rental. Other than that what are the train and bus options?

    • Visit Chernivtsi in Ukraine

      by JKarunesh Online Now Jun 30, 2005 at 4:59 AM

      We have just had a great time travelling in the Ukraine and found a great apartment on the Virtual Tourist website. We stayed mostly in Chernivtsi and found a great apartment with an English speaking owner who gave us a local map, a tour of the city and information about all of the most interesting places to visit. The people are amazing - so welcoming and generous. So if you like us want to go somewhere completey different - go to Chernivtsi and see the beautiful Carpathian Mountains, taste fantastic organic food and experience a slower and more natural daily life. Visit if you want information about the apartment we stayed in.

      When looking on the Chernivitsi website (, in the Sport and Tourism section, there is a list of tourist Routes. I think this would be what we call in America, a guided tour. One of the tours is called "Shalom, Chernivitsi". If there is anyone who knows where I might get more information on this tour, please let me know. Thank you Rootssearcher
