Any regular van travel from Kiev to Lviv?

by youngken

I may carry a lot of luggage travel from Kiev to Lviv in mid January.
If I hire a van to do this, the driver / company may charge me a return fee / oil.
Any company running Lviv / Kiev regular route, even by a truck it is OK.
How much for one way?
Thanks

Re: Any regular van travel from Kiev to Lviv?

I almost said "I want to visit Kiev, never was there, good opportunity - and I have a large van". Before saying it I realized, the roads are frozen, I would come all the way from BP through Carpathians, the weather conditions unknown and I better keep my butt at home.

Unfortunately many others may think the same.

Hence:
- try to organize the transport from where you live to the station in Kiev
- check, what trains have "bagazhnyj vagon" (rail car for checked baggage) - some do!
- just put the entire thing in the rail car for that purpose
- In Lvov do the opposite thing.

Will cost much less than what you plan and much less depending on the weather.
We are talking about exUSSR in January, aren't we?

Looks, like the train 097K Kiev-Lvov departing 22:00, arriving 07:41 does have a car for checked-in large baggage. The 4-bed should cost under $15 (2007 price: 101.79 HR)

Why don't you email HunterV he lives in Kiev and knows Lvov very well.

Travel Tips for Kiev

Internet and international telephony in Kiev

by socheid

Hi all,

Ignore the heading above. This is not a reference to my favourite thing about Kiev. It is merely some info that some people may find useful.

If you are looking to use a local telephone box to make an international phone call then the place to go is the main post office ('poshta' in local language if you are asking for directions to get there) on the corner of Independence Square and Khreshchatik Boulevard.

As well as all the services that you would expect from a main post office there is a telephone office accessed from the doorway on Khreshchatik. It is open from 08:00 - 22:00. Handover cash to the person at the counter and she will telll you which number of phone booth to use. At the end if you go back to the counter you will be repayed any unused credit that you have left over.

To dial internationally from this telephone office the international access code is 810. Therefore:-

To ring UK - 810 44...
To ring Australia - 810 61...
To ring USA - 810 1...

etc depending on the target country that you are ringing.

There are 2 places in this block where you can access the internet. 1 is accessed from the post office main door on Independence Square right beside the corner with Khreshchatik. The second is accessed from the next door along on Independence square and according to the sign appears to be 24 hour.

You can also access the internet from an internet joint in Metrograd underground shopping centre. Metrograd is underneath Khreshchatik Boulevard at the Arena City end of Khreshchatik. Right beside the internet place there is a big food court where ths is around a dozen stalls selling different varieties of bargain priced food.

Keep well,
Stevie

Driving in Kiev

by caprice_222

Most westerners will find driving along Kreschatik and several other main thoroughfares relatively easy. The problems kick in when you try to drive anywhere outside of these well-surfaced and signposted routes. The condition of most roads in Ukraine is basically wretched, especially after the winter thaw.
Another problem is the decrepit traffic lights.
Parking is difficult in the city centre, although it became considerably easier recently when the sidewalks were opened up to cars.
According to Ukrainian law foreign drivers should carry an international driving licence in addition to the licence from their home country. U will need to acquire such a licence in your country of origin.

Independence Square

by hunterV

Have a good time walking about Independence Square!
The Square is, so to say, devided by Khreshchatyk Street into two halves.
This is the view of the second half where the 62-meters-high Independence Column is located.
Behind the column you can see a glass wall of the underground trade center called Globe.
You can also climb the glass wall using stairs and have another view of the square from above. Exploring Globe trade and entertainment center.

Expensive cars in Kiev

by georeiser

I have never seen so many of the most expensive BMW's, Audi's, Mercedes, Porche's and Italian sportcars as I did in Kiev downtown. I must admit it was exciting to see the cars drive around the streets, especially when some of the drivers accelerated their sportscars to its limit.
Why are there so many expensive cars in this city? And how can so many people afford this in a country where the average wages are among the lowest in Europe?

Sofiya Kievskaya Complex. Sofiysky Cathedral 4

by bugulma

The golden age of the cathedral was XVIII century when the monastery was founded here. There were several times when it wasn't destroyed. In 1812 the Tsar family wrote the letter to Napoleon to save the cathedral from destroying. In 1920 the cathedral was on list of blowing objects but survived again. At last in 1941-1943 German troops didn't damage it too. Looks like here is real saint things around.
