Kiev is not only Ukraine's largest city but it is also its capital. It is situated in northern central Ukraine, less than 100 miles away from the border with Belarus. Not only is Kiev the country's primary centre for industry, science, education and of course politics, but it is also considered the country's cultural capital as well.
There are many things to see and do in Kiev so it is certainly worth taking some time out to plan your trip. From world-famous historical landmarks to stylish shopping districts and trendy areas, there is much to see and as for transport, you can make your way around the city with cheap car hire in Kiev.
When it comes to transport, Kiev leads the way for Ukraine. There are two international airports with daily connecting flights to Europe and farther afield. As for Kiev itself, there is an underground metro system as well as a bus network and electric trolley buses. There are also taxis and private minibuses as well as car rental in Kiev, providing a great deal of choice for visitors.
The city is steeped in culture and history. For a look back into the city's heritage the Museum of the Great Patriotic War is a great place to visit. Art lovers should also make their way to the National Art Museum to view the works of local artists.
If you are looking for a taste of the surrounding area then just over 50 miles to the west along the E-40 is the city of Zhytomyrm, or roughly equidistant to the northeast up the E-101 is Chemigov. Both are a short drive away with car hire in Kiev.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.
