Taxis and transportation in Kiev, Kiev taxis
There are taxis are all over Kiev and they are very inexpensive. But, it is best to agree on a fee before getting in the taxi because meters are non-existent and you may be in for a surprise.
Watch for Ukrainians holding their arm out to stop a taxi and you will soon get the hang of it.
Even if you can not communicate with the taxi driver I suggest you do something like: Have the address you want to go to written in Russian (or Ukrainian) and show the driver the address. Hold up a Hrivna note, such as 20 Hrivnas and say “ok”? If the driver says “ok” you have agreed on the fee and you will not be ripped off.
