There is the nearest to us consulate. What would like to advise: Be sure to call before you go – there are not visiting days. Documents we have handed over about 15 minutes. A week later came and for even shorter time got all our passports with visas ready. We have not asked a single question. So all those scare Schengen – do not believe.
We set out from Dnepropetrovsk May 9, 3:00 am at our limo called Mitsubishi Space Star. We – my husband, myself, my sister and her friend. I – the driver, her husband – the navigator. Four of them travel more fun and gasoline is not so noticeable. On the road we have not in a hurry, stop to eat and walk. Therefore, to Uzhgorod reached at 18.30, overcome the first 1174 km. In Uzhhorod, spent the night in the hotel Intourist Transcarpathia. Rooms are inexpensive, but excellent condition.
Recommended! In the evening our machine washed and went for a walk around the city. All very nice. Worth a look. Next day (May 10). At 6.40 am, who filled all the way, we drove to the border. The terminal is located right in the city, which is good news. From the Ukrainian side, we were alone! This provoked a stormy, and, of course, premature joy. On the Slovakian side have already been added, turn + shift change time-out. But everything went fine. We do not inspect, nothing more was not asked, stamped the passport, and we went on a first country of our route. All border occupied for 2.5 hours. They say it is not bad at all. Do not forget the lights! Penalties for not included lights are very decent. We, by the way, once the local police were stopped for what was included with the fog near light. This can be done only in severe weather and fog.
