Ivano-Frankivsk (70 km away) 

– the regional centre - has direct railway connection with Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odessa, Dnipropetrovsk, Poltava, Vinnytsia, Kovel, Moscow and, of course, Lviv and Chernivtsi. Regular direct bus routes connect the city with most of other regional centres and big cities of Western and Central Ukraine. Besides, Ivano-Frankivsk Airport on the south-western outskirts of the city hosts daily flights from Kyiv. Three times a day there is a regional train from Ivano-Frankivsk Railway Station to Stryi with a stop in Dolyna. It takes about 2 hours and 20 minutes to get to Dolyna by train. Then you have to get on any regular bus going in the direction of Mizhgiria and you will be in Vyhoda in less than half an hour (the railway and the bus station in Dolyna are in the same building, which is quite convenient). A bus from Ivano-Franivsk to Vyhoda starts from Bus Station No. 2 (Pasichna neighbourhood, 6 km away from Ivano- Frankivsk Railway Station). Direct bus tours to Vyhoda run 1-2 times a day (direction: Ivano-Frankivsk – Uzhgorod via Mizhgiria). So it’s more reasonable to get by bus to Dolyna and make a transfer to Vyhoda there. Regular bus tours to Dolyna run quite often (direction: Kalush). It takes not more than two hours to get to Dolyna by bus and then another half an hour to get to Vyhoda. If you travel by car, you should go about 60 km on the H-10 highway (from Pasichna) in the direction of Stryi until you reach the ring in the centre of Dolyna, where you should turn left (P- 21 highway in the direction of Mizhgiria, Khust).

Lviv (120 km away)

– the biggest city and traffic centre in Western Ukraine. Lviv has direct railway and bus connection with most of other regional centres and big cities of Ukraine as well as a number of capitals and big cities of Europe (in particular, direct trains run to Lviv from Budapest, Bratislava, Krakow, Wroclaw). The recently constructed Lviv International Airport (LWO) hosts about twenty domestic and international flights (Warsaw, Vienna, Istanbul, Munich, Baku, etc.), including a number of low-cost flights. Airport website: http://lwo.aero/. Every day there are several direct bus tours from Lviv to Vyhoda that go in the direction of Mizhgiria, Khust, Tiachiv, Solotvyno, Novyi Mizun (it takes 3,5 hours to get to Vyhoda). The busses start both from the Central Bus Station (in Stryiska Street) and from Bus Station No. 8 at the Railway Station (in Dvirtseva Square). Besides, there are at least 4 everyday bus tours from Lviv to or via Dolyna, taking about 3 hours. It’s not reasonable to consider getting from Lviv to Vyhoda by train. If you travel by car, follow the international highway Kyiv-Chop (М-06) to Stryi (71 km) and, at the junction outside the city, turn to the H-10 highway (in the direction of Ivano- Frankivsk and Chernivtsi) and follow it for 40 km until you get to Dolyna. At the ring in the centre of Dolyna, turn right (P-21 highway in the direction of Mizhgiria and Khust).

Uzhgorod (245 km away)

– a city situated near the junction of Ukraine’s borders with Slovakia, Hungary and Romania, the Ukraine’s south-western gate. It has bus services with many cities of the neighbouring countries. Besides, the railway centre of Chop, which is 22 km away from Uzhgorod, is connected by train with Budapest, Debrecen, Bratislava, Kosice. There are also regular flights to Kyiv from the local airport. There are 1-2 direct bus tours a day from Uzhgorod to Vyhoda (direction: Uzhgorod – Ivano-Frankivsk via Mizhgiria). Another way is to go by train or by bus to Stryi in Lviv Region (trip duration 5-7 hours), from where there are several regular bus tours to Vyhoda (from 10:00 a.m. to 18:30 p.m.) (in the direction of Khust, Tiachiv, Solotvyno, Novyi Mizun, trip duration up to 1.5 hours). If you travel by car, it’s better to go to Vyhoda using the Chop-Kyiv highway (M-06) for 198 km, then, at the junction before the city of Stryi, to transfer to the H-10 highway (in the direction of Ivano-Frankivsk and Chernivtsi) and to follow it for 40 km until you get to Dolyna. At the ring in the centre of Dolyna, turn right (P-21 highway in the direction of Mizhgiria, Khust). Thus, the total distance from Uzhgorod to Vyhoda makes up 245 km. Another way is to go on the M-06 highway for 41 km to Mukacheve and then enter the H-09 highway (Mukacheve – Ivano-Frankivsk - Lviv), follow it for 65 km to Khust and then turn left to the P-21 highway and move in the direction of Mizhgiria and Dolyna for 125 km until you reach Vyhoda. The total distance is a little shorter – 231 km – but it will hardly spare any time or fuel for the quality of the P-21 road is worse.

Kyiv (660 km away)

– the biggest traffic centre of Ukraine, having air, railway and bus connections with many countries and cities of Europe and the world. It has two airports: Boryspil (KBP, www.kbp.aero), which operates many domestic flights and flights by leading international airlines, and Kyiv-Zhuliany (IEV, www.airport.kiev.ua) with some cheaper international and domestic flights. It’s reasonable to go by train from Kyiv to Vyhoda via Stryi – a railway centre in Lviv Region, connected with Kyiv with about a dozen of everyday trains running to Uzhgorod, Mukacheve, Chop, Budapest, Bratislava (trip duration 9-10 hours). From Stryi there are several regular bus tours to Vyhoda (from 10:00 a.m. to 18:30 p.m.) (in the direction of Khust, Tiachiv, Solotvyno, Novyi Mizun, trip duration is up to 1,5 hours). Another way is to go by train from Kyiv to Ivano-Frankivsk (there are 3-4 everyday trains, usually overnight, trip duration 10-12 hours). Besides, there is everyday bus and air service between the capital and the regional centre of Ivano-Frankivsk. There is a direct bus tour Kyiv-Khust starting from the Central Bus Station in Kyiv (Nauky Avenue) and running via Dolyna and Vyhoda (departure at 16:20 p.m., trip duration 14 hours). Another way by bus may be the transfer in Lviv to buses that run in the direction of Khust, Tiachiv, Solotvyno, Novyi Mizun (trip duration from Lviv about 3,5 hours). If you travel from the Kyiv to Vyhoda by car, we recommend using the international Kyiv-Chop highway (M-06) via Lviv to Stryi, then, at the junction outside the city of Stryi, you should enter the H-10 highway (in the direction of Ivano-Frankivsk and Chernivtsi) and follow it for 40 km until you get to Dolyna. At the ring in the centre of Dolyna, turn right (P-21 highway in the direction of Mizhgiria, Khust).
