      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.

      Thanks

    • Link to the Zhytomyr's Hotel? Travel Agency?

      The one link I could find was through besthotelsukraine.com. Has anyone heard of or used this service?

      Does the Zhytomyr Hotel have it's own website?

      I originally planned to stay in Kiev at the Hyatt, however, I will be spending the majority of my time in Zhytomyr. It makes more sense to stay in Zhytomyr instead of traveling back and forth all the time.

      I have read here that they have remodeled the hotel. I will be booking a 2 room suite, but need a link to their website if they have one or a link to a reputable travel agency that I can book through. I want to be sure the room is available when I get there. The less surprises for me the better.

    • Traveling to Kiev Best Way to Get to Zhytomyrs'ka?

      Zhytomyrs'ka Oblast' Mar 29, 2008 at 12:24 PM

      Hello,

      I have never been out of the USA and am planning a trip to the Ukraine and will be arriving in Kiev (Kyjiv) Borispol Airport. I will take this trip in September around my birthday. I am planning on staying at the Hyatt Regency Kiev. I am going to also go to Zhytomyrs'ka (Zytomyr) city.

      How do I get from the airport to the Hyatt Regency? Then, how do I get from the Hyatt Regency to Zhytomyrs'ka (Zytomyr) city? What is the safest method of travel?

      I noticed travelocity gave the Hyatt Regency a 5 star rating. I would like to know what your opinions of the hotel are?

      I also would like to take a day or two and just look at the earth's natural beauty. To go on a walk, hike, or something similar. Are there any tours or anything like that available? To me, seeing the earth's natural beauty is what I look forward to the most.

      I will be learning to speak Russian over the summer (May-Aug) so I hopefully won't be so lost.

      Is there any other advice you could also give a first time traveler?

      Thank you so much!

      I am planning a trip to the Ukraine and will be arriving in Kiev
      Borispol Airport.I met someone from Zhytomyr City and would like to try and
      visit them. All I have is an old address and a map.Is it safe to travel alone from Kiev to Zhytomyr? I have the train schedules and can make online hotel
      reservations. How much of a language barrier will there be? I do not
      speak any Ukrainian. Do you recommend getting a tour guide or interpretor.
      I prefer not to join a large tour group. Any suggestions would be greatly
      appreciated.
