Kiev is the capital and largest city of Ukraine with - officially - over 2.7 million inhabitants is one of the oldest cities in Eastern Europe. The city is in north central Ukraine on the Dnieper River.
Boryspil International Airport (KBP) is located 36km south-east from the city centre.
There are two terminals - they are around 1km away of each other. They're connected by trolleybus no. 22 that takes you further to downtown. From old terminal (domestic) you can also walk (c. 500m) to Volynsky trian station and take regional train (elektrychka) to main railway station.
Zhulyany Airport (IEV) is located 8km southwest of the city center. It is mostly served by budget airlines. Wizzair is the major airline operating to this airport.
Kiev's central railway station Kiev Passazhyrskyi is close to the city centre. Metro station Vokzalna on the M1 line connects to the railway terminal.
The main route into Ukraine from the West is via Poland - the only 24-hour customs post is in Lvivska Oblast (Region) at a place called Krakovets.
International buses stop at the central station, which is a squalid place that is anything but central (metro station Demyvska, M2 line). There are frequent direct buses of variable quality from Poland, Russia, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, Belarus, Greece and Moldova.
Kiev can seem quite interesting to the western tourist, as most signposts are in Cyrillic script. It is still largely a city where very few people know English, and the likelihood of encountering an English speaker is low - but not impossible.
It is advisable, however, to pick up a pocket Ukrainian phrasebook, and learn the Cyrillic alphabet, which can be fun and is easy to learn. Spend some time practising key words and phrases (e.g. 'hello', 'thank-you' and 'bill please').
The most popular taxi apps in Kyiv are Uklon, Uber, Hopin.
It is also perfectly acceptable for any car to stop and pick you up. An unmarked vehicle is a 'gypsy' cab. To hail a ride, simply stand with your arm out.
The Metro is one of the pleasures of Kiev. It is a clean, fast subway system, and it is easy to navigate once you realize that all three metro lines go through the city centre. In total there are 52 stations, with ambitious plans for extension.
What to do
Catch the metro to Hidropark island in the Dnipro river. Kiev is endowed with natural city beaches that line the Dnipro.
Stroll around Podil. Start at St Michael's Cathedral in the Upper Town. Catch the funicular behind it down to Poshtova Ploscha, and wander around the grid-like streets of Podil.
If you're in Kiev on the weekend, go and people watch on Kreshchatyk. Start at Lva Tolstoho Square and head underground.
Go to a service at an Orthodox Church. The best one to visit is St Volodomyr's on Taras Shevchenko Boulevard. Services are long and there are no seats in Orthodox churches, however it's perfectly acceptable to come and go as you please.
Visit different eco-cultural, ecological, ethinic, rock and other festivals both inside the city and near its suburbs.
Also there is a number of free of charge speaking clubs in a few languages which usually meet in eating houses or caffees and where you can socialize with locals and other travelers, so feel free to drop in at one of the meetings.
