      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.

      by Kenny-O Online Now Apr 1, 2016 at 1:48 AM

      Hello hello, we are planning to do Ukraine trip in June/ July.
      I looove flea markets and have seen on the Internet that there should be a large flea market in Odessa. With "flea market" I mean a market where locals sell second hand goods - no touristy antiques market or new goods market :). If anybody could help me out with: if, where, what day, what time a flea market take place in Odessa, I would be super grateful :)

      Many thanks in advance!

      Travel conditions in Odessa, Ukraine?

      by GeorgeTheGreek Online Now Mar 24, 2014 at 6:56 AM

      If any Odessa locals would be kind enough to inform what conditions are like for travel in Odessa at the moment? I have arranged a trip there from some time ago, & I am due to arrive there April 16th for one week stay.
      I have heard / read mixed reports elsewhere. I read about protests / demonstrations turning violent earlier this month and state offices / parliament being attacked. Some people say Russian military is spreading in southern Ukraine and nearing Odessa, and things getting close to war. Other people say that in Odessa life continues as normal and is ok to travel.
      I was considering whether to postpone my trip, so any information would be much appreciated. Thanks.

      as I'm planning to travel to Odessa in October from Bulgaria (on the Varna - Odessa bus), I'd like to know how to get to the city centre by using public transport. The bus is due to arrive in Odessa at 21,30. Are there city buses running by night? I'd like to avoid taking taxis..
      Also, anyone knows about passport controls and need to fill in immigration form at the border (when entering Ukraine)?
      Thank you in advance.
