How to get to Bolhrad

Bolhrad is 713 km distant from Kyiv, and there are several ways to reach the place of destination👇. 

1. Car 🚗. Road number E95 was recently renovated and is comfortable for driving. Travel time - about 9 hours.
☝️What to keep in mind. After passing Odesa, you can choose two road options: through Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi and Mayaky. GPS will "offer" you to take the first way. It is longer and is not so good as the other way, which crosses the territory of Moldova in the area of Palanka village. So, we'd recommend you to change the route by yourself and drive through Mayaky and Udobne villages, which border the neighbouring country. Do not be afraid of the word "border", you won’t even need a passport to pass the checkpoints. The only thing you will be asked is the number of people in the car. You will receive a small piece of paper, which will have to be given at the next checkpoint. Believe us, this way is much easier, the road here is much better, and you will save at least an hour and a half.
After passing the second checkpoint "Udobne", move through Tatarbunary straight in the direction of Bolhrad.
