"Kiev Metro" Kiev Transportation Tip by georeiser
Kiev Transportation: 153 reviews and 183 photos
The Metro trains in Kiev are fast and reliable. The city has 46 stations in the city and 4 lines with the overall length of 60 km. The signs are well arranged with line maps, but the language is in Cyrillic and is not readable for other than people from Eastern-Europe. You have to ask the locals where to go or take the chace to find out yourselves.
I experienced the people friendly and helpsome. You have to buy the Metro ticket at the couter before entering the escalators. The ticket is cheap and valid for one hour.
Kiev Metro is special due to the deep stations, where some of them are 100 meters deep and could potentially be a bomb shelter. The escalators down to the trains are the longest I have taken. And some of them are operated manually by a man sitting at the end of the escalator.
