Getting There & Away

If you plan to see the fortress in Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky and then spend some time on the beach, it would be wise to take a morning train from Odesa railway station (20uah, 2½ hours, four daily) and return by bus. Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky is also served by minibuses departing from both Privoz and Privokzalna bus stations in Odesa (57uah, two hours, frequent). These pass through Karolino-Buhaz, Zatoka and Shabo.

Chornomorsk minibuses (20uah, every 15 minutes) depart from the same bus stations in Odesa and bring you into the town centre. Heading to Chornomorsk from Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky, you need to get off at Velykodolynske (better known as Bolshaya Dolina) where you can change for Chornomorsk-bound buses.

Shabo is 9km from Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky. Buses stop around 500m from the winery.
