Get in[edit]

Buses (marshrutky 65 UAH in June 2014) leave from Kiev's Lisova Metro station when they are full, usually every 15 to 20 minutes.

Understand[edit]

In the medieval times Chernihiv located in the North of Ukraine at a distance of 150 km from the city of Kyiv, was the second significant center of the ancient Rus' state. Five temples, the gems of ancient Rus' art, came down to us almost intact from the times of Kyivan Rus' state.

Get around[edit]

Public transport includes buses and trolleybuses. Subtle detail of public trasport routes is that there is no direct connection between railway station and Chernihiv-1 bus station to the most central sights on the Val - you will have to take any trolleybus or bus from the station to crossing of Prospekt Mira and Prospekt Pobedy (Hotel "Ukraine" stop; look for the end of the boulevard along Prospekt Mira near it), and than walk through historical centre a little. Trolleybus 1 and bus 38 will take you even one stop further, to Drama Theater stop near Pyatnickaya church, but no further. Consult map, as different routes come to Hotel "Ukraine" from different sides, you will have to walk along Prospekt Mira along its continuation after boulevard ends.
