Getting there & away
Uzhhorod’s bus station (vul Zaliznychna 2) is opposite the train station at the southern end of pr Svobody.
There are long-distance buses to Lviv (37uah, six hours, four a day) and to Chernivtsi (56uah, 10 to 12 hours, twice daily), the latter stopping en route at Rakhiv (27uah to 32uah, six to eight hours). An overnight service run by Autolux (www.autolux.ua) goes to Kyiv (14 hours).
Locally, marshrutka 145 goes to Chop (4uah, 45 minutes) every 15 minutes until 8.20pm from the side of the bus station facing the train station. Unnumbered services leave from the main tarmac on the other side of the bus station for Mukacheve (5uah, one hour), nominally every 15 to 20 minutes, but more likely when they’re full.
Trains to and from Western Europe don’t stop in Uzhhorod; you must go to nearby Chop.
Domestic trains go to and from Lviv (56uah, seven to eight hours, twice daily) and Kyiv (111uah, 19 to 21 hours, two daily). Additionally, there’s a red-eye Moscow service (440uah to 550uah, 33 hours, daily) also passing Lviv and Kyiv. Other destinations include Solotvyno (42uah, 7½ hours, daily).
There’s at least one daily flight (and sometimes four) to Kyiv, and a weekly Budapest flight, from Uzhhorod’s airport (975 04, 428 71; vul Sobranestka 145), 2km northwest of the centre. Check the website of Kiy Avia (www.kiyavia.com) for flight details.
