Speaking about Ukraine, it’s difficult to decide where to start, as the history of this country is very rich. The main cities are Kiev, Lviv, and Odessa. A tourist “must see” in Kiev is Khreshchatyk that turns into the fully pedestrian street on weekends. Many architectural landmarks and sights of the city are located here. In Odessa, the main pedestrian street is Deribasovskaya. Lviv is the most “western” Ukrainian city so in the Soviet cinema its streets often used to depict the medieval Europe.
You can use public transport to get around, but buses in Ukraine are not very comfortable, and, as for trains, you often have to adjust yourself to the their schedules. In case you have a lot of luggage, or are travelling with children, it is better to order a cab.
If you need a taxi in Ukraine, you can order it by phone as well as through mobile apps, or find one in the special car parks, that are usually situated near big hotels. Be aware that 80-90% of taxis work illegally without a special permit. That means you cannot be sure whether the driver has had a medical examination and whether his car has passed technical inspection. It will be necessary for taxis in the future to have yellow car numbers that are not possible to get without a license for passenger transport.
The taxi cost calculation system in Ukraine is rather difficult. Both distance and waiting time are taken into account. Many taxi companies take additional fees for the pre-order, air conditioning or meeting at the airport in Ukraine. There is a price increase if the weather is bad or if there are many taxi requests.
