Getting to Zurawno

Travel arrangements depend in part on your budget and whether you want to visit other locations in Europe. Many visitors fly into Kyiv, and some fly from London, Vienna and Warsaw to L'viv.

The airport in Krakow, Poland, is approximately 25 minutes from the Krakow train station. There is a train that goes from Krakow to L'viv and also a train from Odessa to L'viv. The 35 mile (55 kilometer) trip to Zhuravno can be made by motor vehicle. It is recommended that one hire a local interpreter/driver who is familiar with the area.
