'''Donetsk''' [http://www.donetskcity.com/] is a city in the [[Ukraine ]].
The are a few ways to get to Donetsk. You can try to fly in directly (the airport code is DOK) usually through Kiev, Munich, Istanbul or Vienna. There are also options if you are in Ukraine: train, air or by car. The drive from Kiev can be 6-8 h depending on how fast you drive, how many stops you make, etc.
There is also a direct train once or twice a week from [[Almaty]] ([[
Kasachstan]]) via [[Atyrau]] and [[ Volvograd]]. However, you will need at least a Russian transit visa, which is generally quite expensive.
Public transportation is cheap but can be crowded. Be prepared to stand up most of the time, and you may have to make waves when you want to get out. There are four main types: the trolleybus, bus, tram and minibuses (''marshrutkas''). Trams and buses will get you just about anywhere in the city for 1 hryvnia (around 0.
10 euro as of July 2011). This price is for as long as you want to be on the tram/bus. Tickets are to be bought from the conductor, which is on board of every tram/bus. At the central market there is one of the many depots. These forms of transport stop at every stop on the route.
The minibuses can be found throughout the city. They are like the buses, but faster, smaller, and they stop at only some stops. If you are on board you must yell to the driver that you want out at the next stop, and if you are waiting for one, you must flag it down. Depending on the driver, these can get very crowded. You will pay about 2 hryvnia (usually to the driver).
