Getting There & Away

Kaniv is just about doable as a long day trip from Kyiv. Buses (90uah, 3½ hours, at least hourly) depart from the capital's Vydubychi bus station.

There's a 6.30am marshrutka to Pereyaslav-Khmelnytsky (60uah, 1½ hours), a very pleasant 50km ride across the giant Kaniv dam on the Dnipro and on through Van Gogh–like sunflower- and haystack-filled landscapes.
