Lviv to Kiev – the first 300 km the roads varied from 2 to 4 lane with some rough patches and the last 200 was a good 4 lane road, stopped for fuel twice, one black cloud decided to rain on me for 5 minutes, otherwise fine weather. 538 kms – 6:10 hrs.
Kiev – big city with lots of things to see and do. Population over 3 million with 3 metro lines that will get you close to most places, cost of a ride is UAH 8 or €0.28 and you can pay with Google Pay on your phone at the turnstile, no queuing up to buy a token. Uber is another cheap alternative, most rides are less than €3.00. My Vodafone SIM stopped working due to no credit so I had to buy a plan for UAH 80 which gave me 4GB data and some calls. Basically when you buy the SIM for UAH 65 there is a minimal amount of Data included and no calls. I also paid another UAH 50 so I could use it as a hotspot.
The Babi Yar Memorial Reserve was established in the ravine where tens of thousands of people were massacred by the Nazi’s.
