Having done the Western parts of Ukraine in 2016 we were heading East this time. By car from Kiev to Charkiw and then South ending up in Odessa. As usual we visited all the systems en-route, both trams and trolleybuses. We knew we were coming back in June with big group so we used this trip to finalize various details of that tour (like talking to depot bosses re: depot visits and charters).
day 1 – Київ/Kyjiw (Kiew/Kiev)
day 2 – Суми (Sumy)
days 3-5 – Харків (Kharkiv/Charkiw
day 6 – Полтава (Poltava/Poltawa)
