Kiev is home to three major airports, but the majority of international visitors enter the Ukrainian capital through Borispol International Airport, less than four miles away from the city by booking car rental in Borispol Airport. This airport handles between 60 and 70 per cent of Ukraines total air traffic. The airport's annual passenger traffic increased from a million and a half in 2001 to nearly six million in 2009.
Although most Borispol International Airport flights come from other countries, the airport also handles domestic flights in its main terminal, Terminal B. Terminal B is also the location of most airport amenities, including travel agencies, business centre, banks, bars, cafés, and shops. Avis, Hertz, and Europcar all provide car hire in Borispol Airport. The recently opened Terminal F is a Ukraine International Airlines home base, while another modern terminal, Terminal D, is expected to open in 2012.
The biggest challenges motorists will meet when driving in Kiev are the street signs, the vast majority of which are only written in Cyrillic script. Relatively few Kiev residents speak English and many city motorists drive fairly recklessly. Walking in Kiev can also be risky as many motorists even drive or park on city footpaths. Motorists should also be especially careful when they compare car hire options because many Ukrainian vehicles do not meet the higher safety standards found elsewhere in Europe.
The most infamous day trip from Kiev is to the 19 mile exclusion zone around the failed Chernobyl nuclear power plant, which was deemed safe enough for people to visit on official guided tours on the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl explosion. This long restricted area lies 81 miles north of Kiev. A safer day trip motorists can take with their own vehicles is to Pirogov, a living folk architecture museum and village just over 12 miles southwest of Kiev.
Ukraine is known for its frigidly cold winters, and Kiev is no exception. The Ukrainian capital's average daytime winter temperatures are a few degrees below freezing, and snow usually stays on the ground between November and March. Summers, however, are surprisingly warm and sunny with temperatures occasionally soaring as high as 35°C. Temperatures remain warm well into September and October, which are Kiev's Indian summer months.
