How to get from the mainland of Ukraine to the Crimea.
On the eve of the May holidays on the border with the Crimea lined up. Yesterday morning at the checkpoint “Chongar” accumulated about two hundred people who for four hours could not even get to the checkpoint itself. People began to rebel. “We are not allowed even at the checkpoint. They say different things: the base flew, then the change. Cars are passing, but people are standing. There are about 200 people here – the train just arrived and the people were crowded, “Andrei Kovalenko, who yesterday was driving from Kiev to the Crimea, told us. Almost four hours later people began to miss.
“Indeed, there was a pause connected with technical problems,” said Oleg Slobodyan, press secretary of the State Border Service. He does not rule out a small hitch on the border in the next two weeks due to the fact that more people go to the Crimea for holidays than usual.
However, how quicker and cheaper to get to the Crimea, when there are no trains or planes flying there? “News” figured out how to cross the border and how much it will cost. If there are no technical interlocks at the border, then pass the test and cross the foot buffer zone between the two checkpoints will take 20-40 minutes, while on the machine you can stand in line. Also, through the search for fellow travelers, you can transfer to Crimea from any city without any change. For example, from Kiev such a trip will cost 900-1400 UAH.

You can fly to Simferopol from Moscow. Tickets for May in this direction now start from $ 250 round-trip per person (if you buy in advance, then cheaper than $ 100). Plus, the cost of the road to Moscow (on a round trip airplane – from $ 130-150). Time depends on the connections in Moscow. But the minimum is about 5 hours.
