Looks like Ukraine is rich enough to afford poor roads ... Just like Poland a couple of years ago ...

Hello Chris,

I have driven this route several times, as I live in Germany and visit Budapest often. When I have the time, I like to drive to Zakarpathia in Kyiv.

The Autobahn in Austria and Germany are so busy, it is a pleasure to drive on M1 in Hungary. From Vienna to Budapest, the autobahn is very straight and flat, traffic is not so bad, and you can drive faster than 130 km/hour, as there are only one or two cameras that check for the vignette (matrica). You must take M0 to go in a circle around Budapest to the South and East. Maybe your GPS is stupid like mine and it tries to take you downtown Budapest, but do not do it ! Follow the signs in the direction of M3. Some signs will also have the oval with the UA symbol of Ukraine. After you are past Budapest, M3 has even less traffic, the road is perfect, and Eastern Hungary does not have many people. It is one of my favorite places to drive. There are plenty of rest stops with toilets also.

The Autobahn ends at Nyiregyhaza, but from there it is only 74 km to the border town of Zahony. You can make it from the road here to the border in around half an hour. Even though the road is only one lane in each direction, there is not much traffic and plenty of opportunities to pass. The last time I drove it was in November of last year. They continue to build the Autobahn and I hope it will not be long until it is finished.

Crossing the border can take a long time if they want to inspect inside your car. After I cross, I usually drive to Uzhgorod and Mukacheve, as I do not have time to go all the way until Lviv. But to go to Lviv, you have two choices:

1. You can take M06, a nice road to Uzhgorod and then follow the signs until Mukacheve. This takes longer, but the roads are not so bad.
2. Right after Chop, you can take T0710 until Mukacheve. You will go through many villages and see a famous Hungarian castle on a hill along the way (eine Sehenswuerdigkeit!). This is a pretty route, but the road is absolutely terrible! You might also see cows or a funeral procession on the road.

From Mukacheve, you take E471/M06 through the Transcarpathian mountains. The road is one lane with curves, but the countryside is beautiful. Just try not to rush, as this will take a while to drive. If you are hungry, there is an excellent traditional Ukrainian restaurant (Koszatsky) along the way.

Eventually, you arrive in the South of Lviv, by a large war monument. The former Hotel Intourist downtown is a nice place to stay and there is a parking lot with guard behind the hotel. Most places in Ukraine (gas stations, stores, parking lots, restaurants) seem to have many security guards!

On the way back, you can:
1. Take the same route. Maybe a bit more boring the second time.
2. Drive part of the same route back to Uzhgorod, then cross at Visne Nemcke into Slovakia. This border crossing can be slow and busy. Then drive through Michalovce, Kosice, and then South to Miskolc in Hungary. Although it is not Autobahn until this point, you can go fast on the roads. From, Miskolc, it is Autobahn back to the juncture with M3 where you drove before.
3. Drive West from Lviv on E40 into Poland. A good way to see Krakow and Wroclaw. I don't know how much Autobahn is built in Poland now, but it was slow for me until Wroclaw. Then it was Autobahn all the way until Germany and all the way home!

This is a very good, interesting, long trip and I think you will enjoy it if you have four days to do it. Good luck!

To the regulars, this is a wonderful website and I am glad I have found it. Thanks for all the information and hard work and I hope maybe others will find my first post useful. Thank you!

The Polish A4 is now autobahn/motorway from a bit east of Krakow all the way to the German border. Additional sections of autobahn/motorway are scheduled to open in March and April this year.

Unfortunately, it's impossible. If everything will be OK, I think this sections will be opened in 2013.

looks to me like Ukraine will never have decent roads, not to mention controlled access highways.I drive there every month to Ivano Frankivsk and without navigation will be impossible for a non-ukrainian speaker to get there(most road signs are in Cyrillic).I am from Romania but not even in here is that bad.

You can think whatever you want, but there doesn't seem to be any evidence to support your claim.

Your links have nothing to do with the sections due to open in March and April.

You don't have to learn Ukrainian, just learn how to read Cyrillic. It's not that hard, once I learnt how to read Arabic.

I taught myself Cyrillic in the first class of high school, I was about 12 then. It's really easy, probably the easiest non-latin script to read.

Hi, seems like there is a good chance for me to get some help here!
Driving from western Ukraine, (border to Poland) to Kiev would you recommend M07 or M06 for time and convenience?

Many thanks!

If you`re driving from Korczowa, it`s better to go M11 and than take M06 This road has mostly asphalt layer

The road from Medyka to Lviv I have already tried a couple of years ago :-)

This time I'll be crossing the border i bit further north, at Dorohusk, so the M07 would be closest way straight to Kiev. But if the M07 is much more time consuming than M06 I still have the possibility to access the M06 in Rivne and use that road to Kiev...
Any thoughts, comments or other suggestions?

Thanks,
