Kiev is the heart and soul of Ukraine. It is one of the oldest cities in Eastern Europe, with a long history, while the city went through many changes throughout the years. Today, it is an important economic, cultural and educational centre of Eastern Europe.
Kiev is known for its beautiful churches and cathedrals. Pechersk Lavra (the Caves Monastery) is at the top of the list, followed by the St. Michael’s Monastery, St Volodymyr's Cathedral, St. Sophia’s Church and St. Andrew’s Church. The city is full of beautiful green landscapes, including the National Botanical Gardens and Kreshchatyk Park. Other places you should visit are the Museum of the Great Patriotic War, the National Museum of Ukrainian History, the National Art Museum, and the Aviation Museum.
There is a wide offer of mass transit options to get around Kiev. Depending on where you want to get and how fast, you can use the metro, bus, trolleybus or the tram.
The metro is a fast and efficient way to reach different parts of Kiev. The wide metro network consists of three lines: M1 (red line), M2 (blue line), and M3 (green line). There are three interchange stations where the lines intersect.
The trolleybus is convenient to reach any part of Kiev from the early morning till midnight. It’s a slower transport option and perfect for sightseeing. Buses run from 07:00 to 20:00 and the wide network covers the city, as well as, the suburbs. You can see the timetable on the bus stop information boards. The tram was the dominant public transport mode in Kiev before the metro, but today is used less frequently.
The Kiev funicular connects the city with the ancient city district of Podil. By taking the funicular, you will enjoy the panoramic views of the Dnipro River and explore the historic city.
Ukraine taxi drivers usually don’t use the meter, so the price needs to be negotiated in advance. The Kiev taxis are cheaper compared to the other European capital which makes them an affordable transport option.
There are two airports serving Kiev: Borispol and Zhuliany airport. The Kiev Borispol airport is the main hub for arriving in Kiev and serves international flights from European and US destinations. Before the construction of the Borispol airport, Zhuliany International airport was the major airport in Kiev. Today, this airport still serves international flights, mainly by budget airlines.
