Taxi boryspil to first metro stop.

by zoommedix

I see taxis from the airport into kyiv can be expensive.... Does anyone know how much it would be from boryspil airport to the closest metro station (Boryspils'ka) by taxi and then into kiev via metro? Is this a good option or would the bus from the airport be easier? I amy also be interested in a guide for one of my days in kyiv Oct 5 or 7.

Thanks all in advance

Taxi to the city center costs $20. I doubt that taxi to Boryspilska would be much cheaper.

there is a metro stop at the train station. there is a bus that goes to the train station fairly cheep 25 UAH but only takes local currency. taxi from airport is normally 30 USD if you can negotiate. bus to train station was on the left when you exit the terminal, they are big modern buses but the location changes with all the construction.

it seems the closest station is Khr'kivska metro (although the bus has the final destination 'central railway station'). I got bus and last time the stop was to the left of the exit of the terminal. unfortunately I don't remember the price..., maybe the link helps...http://kbp.com.ua/english/transport/2.html

you can take a bus (Polit), or mini bus upon the exit. it's convinient if you need to catch a train as it will take you directly to the Central Railway Station. buses run every 30 min 24/7. the price for a one-way ticket cost 25 UAH (around $5). the bus makes one stop - at Kharkivska metro station (green line) (tell a driver in advance, so he will not charge you for the whole route. price to Kharkivska is around 12 UAH ($2)). From there you can travel to the city center for UAH 2 ($0.25). so the whole trip will cost you around UAH 14, which is around $2, but timewise, it might take twice as long compared to taxi.

Travel Tips for Kiev


by hydronetta

Upon arrival you pass the passport control where you have to present a completed form (arrival & departure) with your personal data, purpose of trip and address in Ukraine. You need to need to fill in an address or else it won’t be accepted by the officers The same info is completed in the departure from which is returned to you and you are supposed to keep an eye on it as you are requested to give it back when you depart the country. Queues can be long so in case you’re departing, try and arrive a bit earlier than usual at the airport.

The monastery of Kyiv-Perchersk Lavra

by Klod5

Seen of Kiev, since the tower of the monastery of Kyiv-Perchersk Lavra,

The guide, at the bottom of the tower, to tell it to you : the panorama is worth the one of the Tour Eiffel in Paris ! And he is right well.
You won't regret the few Hvrinas that it is necessary to pay, in addition to the entry, to climb the 250 marches and to admire the immensity of Kiev.

Once in top, you will have a magnificent view point on the monastery, on the stream and on the set of the city. Si vous êtes français, le guide vous gratifiera d'un sonore "Bonjour, vive la France"... et d'autres expressions de politesses, dans un français parfait.

Khreschatyk and Independance square

by Klod5

In the center of the city, Khreschatyk and Independence square, rebuilt after the second war world, then revised since the independence, are the living, commercial and animate center of Kiev. The family comes to go for a walk Sunday, and all week, this part of the city is in a big agitation. The place to been revised entirely since these last years, and works have only been finished at the fall 2002. A vast underground shopping mall he spreads under the whole place, of monumental entry being under the vast dome of glass. To the second basement, just under the dome, an impressive collection of fast food of all way : Mac-Do, hollowing, but as pizzas, Chinese or Ukrainian... I didn't count them, but there are about twenty restaurants well around the circle.
