Dear travelers, if during your being in Ukraine you will decide to fly to Chisinau (Kishinev), Moldova, you need to see this picture. It is a map of flights from Chisinau (Kishinev), Moldova (it has been taken from airmoldova. md). There are no any flights from Moldova to Ukraine. You can fly to Moldova from Europe, from Turkey, from Russia, but not from Ukraine. One guy from on of travel forums offered to fly from Kiev (airport Borispol) to Timisoara (Romania) and fly from to Chisinau (Moldova). But that idea did not have any success. It is possible to reach Moldova by other ways:
Bus timetable (bus.com. ua) has a lot of busses from any point of Ukraine to Moldova. All of them pass via Odessa bus station. The distance from Odessa to Chisinau (Kishinev) is about 200 km. A travel by a regular bus is about 6 (!) hours. Why? Because you will go through 2 borders: Ukraine-Transnistria (Pridnestrovie) and Transnistria (Pridnestrovie)-Moldova. Your travel costs will include: bus ticket from Odessa to Chisinau about 10-12$ and customs charges - about 20$. [Dont forget, bus timetable can be changed. Check it before you trip]
Train timetable (uz. gov. ua) has a lot of trains to Chisinau (Kishinev), but they don't pass via Odessa. They pass via Mogilyov-Podolskiy (western Ukraine). [Dont forget, train timetable can be changed. Check it before you trip]
What people say about travel to Chisinau via Transnistria:
". . As for getting to Odessa, your right there are no direct flights. The best way would be taxi via Transniester. . I've been to Transniester many times and never had a problem, although I use taxi drivers from Transniester so there less likely to be any issue at the border. You do need to fill out a form when entering and you have to fill it out in Russian, but if your've been to russian and have a russian visa then look at that as it should have your name writtern in Russian. At worst they will try and get $20 dollars out of you when your about to cross into Ukraine. A bus would take ages. "
