The metro in Kiev started working in 1960. There are three lines and 43 stations. Eash side of the city is connected through the Metro bridge. The road traffic in Kiev is so heavy, metro is the fastest and most convenient mode of transport. The metro is crazy during rush hours as it gets so crowded. Between 7am & 8am and again at 5pm & 6pm.Its open from 6am - 12pm daily.A ticket is around €0.20 cents valid for one ride. Its easy to get around even if nobody speaks english !!
