Its capital, Kyiv, features the gold-domed St. Sophia's Cathedral, with 11th-century mosaics and frescoes. Overlooking the Dnieper River is the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra monastery complex, a Christian pilgrimage site housing Scythian tomb relics and catacombs containing mummified Orthodox monks.

Arriving in the Ukraine

On the 28th of July I flew from Frankfurt to Kiev Borispil Airpot. My first visit to the Ukraine has begun.


Borispil Airport is a very easy entry point to the Ukraine. Passport control works like a dream with almost no waiting. Exit through Customs was also an easy operation through the Green Channel.


Airport Pickup.

I booked an Airport pickup from a company I found on line, taking a chance on believing in the information on their page.


Safe Airport Transfer.

These guys are the best. Good prices and reliable. I can recommend them 100%.

 I can 100% recommend this company, their driver was waiting as I came out of customs, het took my bags and drove me to my hotel in an immaculate Audi A6. I also used this company for a four hour tour of Kyiv and also for my return to the airpot for my flight home.

100% reliable, good prices and friendly staff.
