      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.

    • A visit to Lviv

      by CoweyB Online Now Oct 3, 2016 at 7:43 AM

      Hello fellow VTers in Lviv

      I am going to Ukraine in a few weeks time, I'm spending a few days in Lviv before flying to Kiev for a few more days, it's my first time to Ukraine and I'm getting excited...

      I wanted to ask you for an indication of how much it would be to get a taxi from the airport to the centre of Lviv. I've seen that it's also possible to get a bus (48) or a tram (9) are the bus stops for those close to the airport terminal?

      Finally, I also wanted to ask you to suggest to me five things I really must do when I visit the city.

      A fortnight to go before I arrive :-)

      by volunteer2014 Online Now Dec 19, 2014 at 10:56 AM

      I have an opportunity to be in Lviv during January-February 2015 but I have some doubts. I know there is no terrorist threat in Lviv but I 'm thinking what if war begins with Russia and is Lviv safe ? How's the behaviour of Ukrainian Goverment . I mean that is Ukrainian Goverment peaceful or can they make something that can cause war ? Or are all my concerns just an overstatement of media ?
      Also , I'd like to learn that if it's easy to go to Poland , Slovakia from Lviv ? I read that there are daily buses from Lviv to Krakow but in the internet I saw that buses work once in a week . That's why I couldn't decide which one is true.
      If somebody answer my questions , I'll be really glad.

      Bus / Train from L'viv to Krakow May 2012

      Hi everyone!

      I'm planning a trip for next week and I'm going from L'viv to Krakow, I've been looking for information and I've seen that there's a night train just working on par days, I will be there on 17 so I think I won't be able to get that train. I've also seen that there's a bus working daily at 22:00 from Lviv to Krakow arriving around 6am but i don't know if it is working now because that information was old. Anybody can tell me something about it? I would like to go to Krakow by night so I can stay there for the day. Also, I've seen that Bus Main Station is far from the Lviv center, anybody knows how to get there?

      Thank you!!

      1. ATM plus service is not common in most machines.
      2. Withdrawal limit is low and cause higher administration and commission charge.
      3. ATM machine may take your card without reason and need hours to take it back.
