Kyiv, Ukraine @ GoKiev.info

Kiev / Kyiv..... one of the greatest cities in Europe. Honore de Balzac, the famous French novelist, wrote: "Petersburg is a young city, Moscow is an ancient city, but Kyiv is the eternal city. It is a Northern Rome."

Welcome to GoKiev.info - Transportation in Kiev (Kyiv) and Ukraine. Buses / Cars

Kyiv, Ukraine   There are several private companies offering bus travel which in most cases is a cheaper option than travelling by train or plane. For example there are regular bus schedules to the Polish cities of Warsaw, Krakow, Lublin, etc., with the ticket for the Warsaw route costing only 200 hryvna ($40) each way for a round trip. It is an overnight journey, however and as you can imagine a bit of an uncomfortable sleeping experience.
     Alternatively, the Warsaw train trip with a sleeper cabin will set you back 400 hryvna ($83) each way.

     From Kiev the Polish bus departs from the Dachna Bus Terminal, Peremohy Prospect 142.

      Ukrainian National Bus Lines serve almost every city and town in Ukraine. The older fleet of buses would suffice for short trips, although sometimes are overcrowded and dirty. So, for the price, train travel is a more comfortable option. "Deluxe" Bus travel is, however, available also by private companies and is not a bad choice.

More comfortable bus trips are availabe from such companies as these;
