Kiev’s cosmopolitan culture and fascinating heritage have made it a magnet for intrepid travellers. Whether you’re inspired by its unique architecture, dazzled by its sporting triumphs or lured by its vibrant nightlife, Ukraine’s storied capital delivers a constant string of surprises – art museums, botanical gardens, monasteries and a world-famous zoo are just for starters. With flights to Kiev from the UK clocking in at just over three hours, British travellers can find themselves at the city’s Boryspil Airport ready to immerse themselves in this exciting destination in no time.
If you’re impervious to the cold, you’ll be more than happy to snap up the winter bargains – from December to February Kiev is often shivering, but it’s also at its most beautiful under a sparkling blanket of snow. Join in the Christmas festivities – celebrated on 7 January in Ukraine – or fly in time for New Year’s Eve, when a giant party is thrown in Independence Square. Choose May for spring flowers, July for summer festivals and October to dodge the school-holiday crowds. The best bet for sourcing cheap tickets to Kiev is to book as far ahead as possible, or to shop around for last-minute deals if you’re able to travel at short notice.
Fly direct to Kiev from London Gatwick with UIA, Ukraine’s national carrier, or wave the home flag with British Airways from London Heathrow. For a wider choice, check out one-stop routes from London, including airBaltic from Gatwick via Riga, LOT from Heathrow via Warsaw and Austrian Airlines from Stansted via Vienna – all of which make for interesting destinations in themselves if you can spare an extra day of your holiday. KLM and Lufthansa both offer one-stop itineraries from Manchester and Birmingham, while Air France provides a scheduled service from Glasgow via Paris.
The vast majority of international travellers to Kiev land at Boryspil, around 20 miles east of the city centre. Enjoy the comfort and convenience of a metered taxi to get to your final destination – you’ll find the official rank outside Terminal D. Alternatively, hop on the Sky Bus from Terminal B or D – this bus links up with Kiev’s metro system and its main railway station, with tickets costing 50 hryvnias and the journey to the station taking under an hour. Hiring a car from one of the many companies located at the airport is also possible.
From the bright onion domes of Saint Sophia Cathedral to the UNESCO-listed Pechersk Lavra monastery, Kiev’s heritage treasures shine brightly alongside powerful modernist landmarks like the towering Mother Motherland statue. Wander down Andriyivskyy Descent, dubbed the ‘Montmartre of Kiev’, past the baroque masterpiece of Saint Andrew’s Church, to the quirky One Street Museum, which houses rare books and local artefacts. For some extra-special sightseeing, take a walk along the banks of the Dnieper River and enjoy unforgettable views of the city’s dramatic skyline.
