Located right in the middle of Europe, Lviv lies on the crossroads of important highways and railroads. The cultural capital of Ukraine can be easily reached from big European cities: Warsaw (391 km), Kyiv (540 km) Minsk (611 km), Budapest (575 km), Bratislava (779 km), Chisinau (623 km), Vilnius (765 km), Berlin (933) and Sofia (1331 km).
There is a good bus connection between Lviv and other major cities in Ukraine and abroad. Getting from Kyiv to Lviv would cost around 10$, Warsaw - 15$, Minsk - 22$. If you are traveling from Bulgaria or Romania, it is cheaper to travel via Kyiv (Sofia-Kyiv - 60$, Bucharest-Kyiv - 35$). In contrast, from Moldova, it would be much more convenient and cheaper to travel via Odesa (Chisinau-Odesa - 10$).
Lviv can boast an extensive rail network with all major Ukrainian cities and a number of European capitals. An express train from Kyiv costs 12$, while an overnight one can be usually purchased for 10$. If you are traveling from Poland, a good idea is to take a direct express train from Przemysl (a border town between the two countries) - it takes less than 2 hours and costs just about 6$. It is very convenient to get to Przemysl from any part of Poland when traveling by bus or train. Traveling from Minsk with an overnight train would cost you around 50$.
There are direct flights to Lviv from Kyiv, Istanbul, Munich, Vienna, London, Minsk, Warsaw, Krakow, Wroclaw, Gdansk, Milan, Bologna, Rome, Berlin, Vilnius, etc. If booked in advance, it is possible to get a round trip for 100-200$. For travelers on a budget, a good option is to consider flying via Wroclaw, Warsaw, or Krakow (Polish hubs for low-cost airlines).
For the sixth year in a row, IT Arena will take place at Arena Lviv Stadium, located on the outskirts of the city. The venue can be easily accessed by car, taxi, Uber or public transport.
