Apartments are a good alternative

by Dadotep about Apartment

There are some nice apartments both near the Intourist as well as in the city center. Though the choices become quite limited the more ammenities you are looking for, the savings can be substantial. I spent a week in Zaporozhye in March and found that having the ability to have a fully stocked kitchen helped keep the costs down a suprising amount. Plus I was able to entertain friends without the hassel of front desk interference.

Most common way to get to...

by Anastasja

Most common way to get to Zaporozhye is by taking a train, the service is very convinient, as well as the prices.From Zaporozhye trains go to a very big variety of directions.
A public transportation is very popular in Zaporozhye, it consisits of: buses, trolleybuses, traumvay, 'marshrutka'(express bus).

Trains or planes are the preferred option ...

by beluga

HEY ... you always wanted to know how the Zaporozhye train station looked like, but YOU WERE TO AFFRAID TO ASK ... here to the left is your chance. You don't even need to ask.

Trains or planes are the preferred option to travel around in Ukraine. It takes about 12 to 13 hours to travel from Kiev to Zaporozhye by train.

It's not recommended to travel around in your own car in Ukraine. There is a risk of theft, and for sure you will be an attractive target for underpaid traffic police officers. Once pulled over, you'll have to pay something. Plus there is the annoyance factor.
Cabbies in Zaporozhye are often driving around in aging Lada's. They tend to drive quite fast. Not expensive.

Beach - not the French riviera, but still a beach

by beluga

Although Zaporozhye is not a coastal city, there are some beaches along the Dnipr river.

They are usually fairly small but with some facilities will be present like a cafe serving food and cold Slavutitch beer. Very pleasant on a hot summer day!

Zaporozhye - where once Cossacks roamed freely

by beluga

Zoporozhzhye (I use Russian spelling as most people living there speak Russian) is depicted not very nicely in travel guides. It's called "a city to be avoided"... because of the factories and pollution.

Well, this city, located 600 kms south-east of Kiev is defenitely no Paris or Rome... but the factories are located quite far from the residential area and the centre - with its open-air cafe's and parks - has actually a pleasant atmosphere in summer.

Visiting the Cossack museum on the Khortytsaya island and making a boat trip are nice tourist trips.

On top of that, Zaporozhye's

(1) "Prospekt Lenin" is the longest avenue in Europe (about 17 kms)

(2) Dneproges Hydroelectric Dam was one of the first dams built in the former SU

(3) the Dam holds the deepest dock in Europe.

Now THAT should win you over, right?

Hotels or B&B's in Zaporozhye

by MacDaddie

Any information or experience with hotels or B&B's in Zaporozhye would be greatly appreciated. Also any information on flying from Kiev would be appreciated - ie. how easy is the connection, who flies there (I think just the two main Ukrainian airlines, do they do baggage transfers, etc.

Any information appreciated.

Did you get to Zaporozhye and if so, what advice would you now offer with respect to hotels or B&Bs. We're planning to do in October.

thanks, marc

No, received no information (about Zaporozhye and other local cities) and ended up visiting Russia instead. Enjoy your trip.

Visiting for a week or more in February 2008

The same question as was posted and never answered before:

Added note: I'm amazed at the prices--it's equivalent to $300-400 a night for a room, or so it seems to me... Are there not some nice homey small hotels?

Thanks
Steve

http://travel-2-ukraine.com/hotels/hotel.php?hotel=42 is 100USD per night, or so, and is the largest hotel in Zaporozhye (so it says).

There are one or two more here:

http://hotel-jazz.com/index_en.html

It may well be that there are very few hotels, especially smaller ones, in the city. But their prices are nowhere near the ones you seem to have seen (were you converting currencies, perhaps?).
