    Luhansk airport, 15 km from the city boundary
    4 more images

    You can get to Luhansk from Kiev and back by plane.
    There are no other flights to Luhansk from any other Ukrainian city like we used to have before.
    The air ticket would cost you about $100 and the taxi ride to Boryspil International Airport from downtown Kiev would cost you about $35 (one hour drive).
    As of June 27, 2008, all flights to Luhansk were canceled due to the new technical requirements. All planes of Lugansk Airlines were recognized as outdated and unsafe.
    Thank God the flights resumed on August 4, 2008 after the turbojet planes were introduced.
    The airport building was under repair for a long time and looks fantastic now.
    This is how its exterior looks like now.
    There is also a charter flight from Luhansk to Istanbul on Mondays and Thursdays in summer. The price is about $300.
    So you can get to Luhansk from the Turkish capital, too. If you should be having a world tour and stay in the Turkish capital, welcome to Luhansk, too!
    You only have to inquire about the plane schedule from that airport.

    There are lots of bus, trolley bus and streetcar routes in the city.
    You can see the route numbers at the stops, but you will not see their exact schedule. The inscription at the bus stop plaque reads that this or that route arrives every five or ten minutes...
    You just have to know your route, have patience and wait like us.
    Usually they arrive every other minute.
    There is a conductor at every streetcar or trolley bus whom you pay the fare (1 UAH).
    Our bus stops are often equipped with small shops, so you can do some shopping while you wait...

    People coming to Luhansk by train are shocked seeing these huge smoke stacks and industrial premises and ask us afterwards what it was.
    It's Alchevsk metallurgical plant, one hour's drive to Luhansk. Its numerous smokestacks are seen from afar and you can smell the smoke,too.
    Don't panic, it's not Lucifer's realm, just a factory. The train stops there for a few minutes.
    I couldn't help taking asome pictures of the plant.

    Luhansk is about 530 miles away from the capital.
    There is a through train from Kiev leaving at 6 p.m. It takes the train 16 hours to arrive to the place of its destination.
    It's better to buy the whole compartment (four seats) even if three persons are traveling. It will cost you about 480 UAH ($95) to buy the four seats in the compartment.
    If an even number of persons is traveling, it's better to buy seats in the First Class sleeping car, which will cost you 400 UAH ( about $80) for one seat (in a two-berth compartment).
    If you miss the through train to Luhansk, you can take an evening bus (at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. from Boryspil airport) to Kharkiv (350 km north of Luhansk). The bus arrives to Kharkiv early in the morning (6 a.m.), you can take a regular morning bus to Luhansk at 6.30 a.m.
    You can also go to Luhansk from the railway station by Mercedes bus which leaves at 4.15 p.m. and arrives in Luhansk at about 7.00 a.m. ( the seat price: 100 UAH = 20 USD).

    Cabs are abundant in Luhansk. You can hire a cab almost at any bus stop, restaurant or cafe. You can also call them by phone. Then it will be 12 or 30 UAH less expensive for you. If you have your address written in Russian for you, it will make your trip home exact and uneventful.
    The normal fare about the city is $5 or $10 and after midnight it tends to get a bit more expensive. If they know you are Forign they will charge up to tripple fare, best to use the metered cabs.
    You can call 055, 059 or 58 48 84 .
