Transportation methot. It can be used the traditional method of the transportation (by private car / van) or the authentic travel - trains, big buses and "marshrutka" (local buses).

- Overnight trains - can be modern and/or older, with sleeper couches (1st, 2nd and 3rd classes);

"Marshrutka" can be translated as "a city route taxi". But in fact, it looks and works like a local public transportation. Are several types of "Marshrutka" (local bus) in Ukraine:
- city route buses;
- suburb route buses;
- intercity buses. 
The size of buses "marshrutka" can be different - from 8 till 20 seats. 

Intercity and interregional buses are bigger, than "marshrutka" (till 60 seats), more comfortable, more slowly and more expensive.
