With a long history spanning back to its founding in the ninth century, Kiev, Ukraine is a thriving and beautiful metropolitan city with plenty to see and do in its 323 square miles. Fans of grandiose architecture will love this city as many of the examples of Ukraine's specific style, containing richly ornamented spires and onion domes, have survived hundreds of years of history and lived to tell Kiev's tales. Browse Kiev vacation packages, including cheap flights to Kiev, which fly into either Boryspil International Airport (KBP), or Kiev-Zhulyany International Airport (IEV).
No matter where your flights to Kiev land, you'll have several options for getting to your Kiev hotels—located near each of these airports. If you're flying into KBP, it's about a 30-minute drive to downtown Kiev. Taxis can be found just outside Terminal D. If you choose to rent a car, there are a handful of rental companies operating out of KBP. Local buses and shuttles also provide a convenient and cheap option for travel. If you're staying at the airport hotel, you can take a free shuttle bus. For those staying in the city proper, there are three different bus lines that will take you to Kiev as well as other nearby cities—should the mood strike.
For those with Kiev flights into IEV—the smaller of the two airports—you'll have fewer transportation options closer to town. Taxis with English-speaking drivers can be easily found right outside the terminal and private shuttles can also be arranged. IEV is also about a half mile from the train station and plans for a metro connection are in the early development stages.
Luckily for visitors, Kiev is a manageable city that's neither too big nor too far from its two airports, so exploring should be a snap. And for those tech-savvy travelers that want to save a few bucks, you can get mobile exclusive deals on the Travelocity app.
