It is ideal to go to Kiev in the winter months to spend a couple of days in this city, and then rush to the ski resorts of Transcarpathia. What is not a rich and active rest? However, it is cool here in summer, you can organize a weekend tour - given the small distance from Russian cities, it won't take much time. And yes, on the way, you should definitely stop by other interesting megacities to see the real Ukrainian life.
Tourists from Russia do not have any problems with planning the travel route - the only thing is that difficulties may arise when crossing the border for men of working age. If there are relatives in Ukraine, it is advisable to receive an invitation from them and show it at customs - in other cases, the passage may be closed, at least, tourists have repeatedly encountered this and shared in their reviews.
It will be possible to come to Kiev from Moscow in several ways - the tourist independently chooses the most comfortable and accessible option for him:
Every day several trains and buses leave for Kiev from Moscow - you can choose morning, afternoon, evening flights, whichever is more convenient.
Residents of the northern capital also often go on sightseeing holidays to Kiev - transport links between the two cities are well established, although they will have to cover a greater distance than from Moscow. There are several options to choose from:
Getting to Kiev from other cities of Russia is also not a problem - from the cities of the Central Federal District you will have to go through Moscow, from the southern regions - it is more convenient through the Crimea, but you will have to cover a greater distance across the territory of Ukraine.
A hike in the Carpathians is romance! Tents, bonfire, mafia game and more. Soup, borscht, porridge in pots! ABOUT! It is also a unique opportunity to understand that nothing is impossible for a person! This was my first trip and not the last! Thanks to our instructor Inna.
Thanks to the organizers for a high-quality corporate party at Migea. We ordered rafting + team building with delivery from Kiev. Everything was at a decent level - food, program, instructor! I would also like to note the creative approach of the instructors. Entertained to the fullest!
I want to thank all the organizers of the Southern Bug rafting! I liked everything very much. An interesting quest, rafting, beautiful nature, good food and professional instructors.
We went with friends on rafting to Migeya from Odessa. The group is not easy - women and children aged 6-12 years. All without experience. Many were afraid and doubted this trip, but in vain! The instructors found an approach to everyone, they felt caring and a sincere atmosphere. The children were generally delighted. Thanks for a nice stay!
I jokingly called my first trip to the Carpathian mountains "... all inclusive ..." - mountains, waterfalls, gorges, steep descents and ascents, where you can see nothing but your own sneakers. Everything is very rich, fast, bright. Thanks to our instructors - Inna and Stas. You are professionals in your field.
Team building on Khortitsa, 120 people. I don't know how it is possible to organize such a crowd, and even so that they do something in a team. But you did it. ? We left as one big family, with lofty goals and passion. Thank you!
A week in the mountains - out of habit seemed rather difficult. But as a result, I overcame not only fatigue, but also my fears. I discovered new opportunities in myself. Thanks to our instructor Ilya for help and support.
We decided to celebrate the company's birthday outdoors. We ordered a corporate tour of the Southern Bug with a trip from Odessa. We took a rope course from additional options. Well done guys, everything was very professionally organized, no complaints. The set goals have been achieved! ? Thanks to ActiveTravel.
