How to Reach

By Air

The city is served by an Dnipropetrovsk International Airport (IATA: DNK) and is connected to other European cities with daily flights.It is located 15 kilometres (8 NM) southeast from the city center.As of 2011 the airport's owners have initiated a program to develop a new terminal complex at Dnipropetrovsk International.This project will see the construction of a large new international terminal, similar in specifications to the newly-built terminal at Kharkiv International Airport.It is believed that once constructed, Dniproavia and all other international airlines will use the new terminal, whilst domestic and charter carriers will use the 1960s terminal which currently serves as the airport's only passenger handling facility.

By Train

The city is a large railway junction, with many daily trains running to and from Eastern Europe and on domestic routes within Ukraine. There are two railway terminals, "Dnipropetrovsk Golovny" (main station)and "Dnipropetrovsk Yuzhnyi" (south station).Two express passenger services run each day between Kiev and Dnipropetrovsk under the name Capital Express.Other daytime services include suburban trains to towns and villages in the surrounding Dnipropetrovsk Oblast.Most long-distance trains tend to run at night in order to reduce the amount of daytime hours spent travelling by each passenger.Domestic connections exist between Dnipropetrovsk and Kiev, Lviv, Simferopol, Odessa, Ivano-Frankivsk, Truskavets, Donetsk, Kharkiv and many other smaller Ukrainian cities, whilst international destinations include, amongst others, Minsk in Belarus, Moscow's Kursky Station and Saint Petersburg's Vitebsky Station in Russia, Baku - the capital of Azerbaijan, and the Bulgarian seaside resort of Varna.

By Bus

The largest bus station in eastern Ukraine is located in Dnipropetrovsk from where bus routes are available to all over the country, including some international routes to Russia, Poland, Germany, Moldova and Turkey.It is located near the city's central railway station.Trams are generally in poor condition; the network has suffered from almost chronic underfunding since the end of the Soviet era and now much of the track and other infrastructure has become outdated.The city's municipal roads also suffer from the same funding problems as the trams with many of them in a very poor technical state. It is not uncommon to find very large potholes and crumbling surfaces on many of Dnipropetrovsk's smaller roads.Major roads and highways are of better quality. In recent years the situation has, however been improving, with a number of new used trams bought from the German cities of Dresden and Magdeburg and a number of roads including Schmidt Street and Moskovsky Street being reconstructed with modern road-building techniques.

By Ferry

In the summertime, there are some routes available by hydrofoils on the Dnieper River, whilst various tourist ships on their way down the river, (Kiev–Kherson–Odessa) tend to make a stop in the city.Dnipropetrovsk's river port is located close to the area surrounding the central railway station on the banks of the river.It is a good example of constructivist architecture from the late period of the Soviet Union.
