The best options to travel to the Eurovision venue are by Kyiv Metro, Uber and taxi. You can check our Discover Kyiv article on the transport in Kyiv for more details regarding commuting in Kyiv and the means of transport available.

In fact if you are planning to commute in the city during the Eurovision Song Contest and want to travel to the International Exhibition Centre then the subway is one of the quickest and cheapest options. You should take the Red Line in order to get to the Eurovision venue and get down at Livoberezhna Station.

You can can take the red line from Khreschatyk Station and Livobereshna Station is only 4 stops away and a 10-12 minutes ride from Kyiv’s downtown. Then from there it is a 10 minute walk to the International Exhibition Centre. Hence it is very easy to travel from the city centre to the Eurovision Arena by subway.
