How to Reach

By Air

Poltava is also served by a domestic airport, situated outside the city limits near the village of Ivashky.The international highway M03, linking Poltava with Kiev and Kharkiv, passes through the southern outskirts of the city.There is also a regional highway P-17 crossing Poltava and linking it with Kremenchuk and Sumy.

By Train

Four railway lines coming out west, east, south and southeast from Poltava, connect it with Kyiv, Kharkiv and other Ukrainian cities. Usually there would be a few trains per day to your selected destination form timetable and ticket prices.There are 2 railway stations: Poltava-Kyivs'ka and Poltava-Pivdenna. Watch your timetable/ticket carefully, as train may stop only at one of those stations, or both. It would be a good idea for you to buy tickets for your next train (if you haven't bought them in advance) immediately upon your arrival. Both railway stations are well connected with city transport (bus/trolley), however between 10PM and 6AM taxi is the only option.

By Bus

Bus connection with other cities is fine, especially along E40 road (Poltava is midway between Kyiv and Kharkiv): buses usually arrive/depart every hour or a few. It will take you 5 hours to get from Kyiv or 3 hours from Kharkiv. There are a few different carriers on these routes: Avtolux, Günsel bus service, which provides more comfortable buses, and cost a bit more (from Kyiv - up to 100 hryvnas to 13 US$). National bus service, usually less comfortable buses (e.g. old Ikarus), for cheaper price.You need to buy ticket at the bus station, and then better keep it with you, ticket control is possible. You would arrive at the (only one) inter-city bus station called Avtovokzal (Автовокзал), which is connected with municipal bus/trolley routes. Note again, that between 10PM and 6AM you'd need to get a taxi.

Thousands of tourists and people who like travels and adventures come here. The Ukrainian Carpathians are relatively gentle peaks that rise as high as 2061 m (Mt. Hoverla).

Alexandria Park

Do you know where to catch the true golden autumn, with its amazing glowing palette of all shades of red, orange and yellow? Where can you collect beautiful bouquets of fallen leaves and listen to the bewitching echo, where can you feel crystal trembling air and make wishes that always come true?… Definitely in Alexandria – the park of striking beauty spread out over the picturesque banks of the Ros’ River not far from Kiev. This place has a beautiful history, with only harmony and peace reigning over it.

Khortitsa National Reserve

Khortitsa – the largest river island in the world – and a kind of Ukraine in miniature: here the wonderful world of natural scenery represents almost all climatic zones of the country, from the steppes and forests to mountains and deserts. Granite cliffs drop steeply to the water, stone steppe spreads and ancient ferns grow in the north. In the south marshy forest, numerous lakes, creeks and hanging swamps reign, and the central plateau is scored by unique cloughs that go right down to the Dnepr river.There are a lot of nature reserves in Ukraine, as well as a countless number of historic objects. But there are also places where an ancient culture, the amazing beauty of nature and a reminiscence of the heroic past have intertwined inextricably. One of these places is the island of Khortitsa. For millennia it has kept its secrets, hiding sanctuary marshes away from human eyes, concealing the ancient Scythian ruins in the rocks, scenting the air with the fragrant aroma of herbs, flowing with lakes and turning the pages of the valiant Cossack history before the eyes of its guests. Here the mighty Dnepr river mesmerizes with its power, ancient mounds tower above the plain and stone idols watch the island life diligently.
