RegioJet will launch a regular rail connection between Prague, Lviv, and Kyiv this Saturday, June 11. For holders of Ukrainian passports, a ticket from Prague to Lviv will cost €10, to Kyiv €26.
“RegioJet responds to the high demand of Ukrainian families who want to return to relatives and friends by introducing this new connection”, said project manager Tereza Ptáčková.
Until now, people used mainly buses and paid over €40 for a ticket to Lviv. Czech Railways trains did not run to Ukraine even before the war started.
RegioJet passengers will have to change to the Ukrainian train in Przemyśl, due to a different gauge in Ukraine. The train runs from Prague via Bohumín, Katowice and Kraków to Przemyśl and continues via Lviv to Kyiv.
