Earth : Europe : Ukraine : Zaporizhia
Zaporizhia is a city in Ukraine.
The name Zaporozhia means "beyond the rapids". Before the Dniproges Dam was built, the rapids on the Dniepr river were a notorious impediment to navigation.
Zaporozhia is around 10 hours away from Kiev via train. There is one daily departure and several night trains heading in both directions. The journey costs around £30 for third class or £56 second class from www.realrussia.co.uk. If you buy tickets locally, the price will be $10 and $15 respectively, but you will have to buy them several days in advance, or risk that the train could be sold out.
There are also daily trains from Moscow, Minsk, Simferopol, and Kharkov.

Finally, Motor Sich Airlines operate one daily flight to and from Kiev. A one-way ticket costs around $100.
