A new railroad connection between the Ukrainian cities of Ivano-Frankivsk and Lviv and the Polish cities of Lublin and Warsaw is expected to be launched soon. 


According to the press service of Ukrzaliznytsia, both railway operators are actively working on the implementation of this project to provide passengers with comfort and convenience when traveling between these cities. 


We will tell you more about this step in improving the railway infrastructure between Ukraine and Poland.


New railway connection between Ukraine and Poland: details


Ukrainian Railways has announced great news for all rail transport fans. Starting October 15, for the first time in 18 years, Ukrzaliznytsia will resume international passenger transportation to Warsaw. 


The railway connection between Ukraine and Poland promises to provide convenient and efficient transportation for passengers traveling between the two countries. 


The new route, which connects Ivano-Frankivsk and Lviv with Lublin and Warsaw, will allow travelers to save time and travel costs. 


This project is important for the development of transport infrastructure, improvement of international relations, and facilitation of exchange between Ukraine and Poland. Passengers will be able to enjoy new travel opportunities, which will contribute to the further development of both countries. 


Train schedule 


According to the information received from the press service of Ukrzaliznytsia, train №867 Kolomyia - Rava-Ruska departs from Kolomyia at 4:20 and arrives in Lviv at 8:30 and in Rava-Ruska at 9:58. 


Train №767 Rava-Ruska - Warsaw departs at 11:00 and arrives in Warsaw at 17:29. 

In the opposite direction, from Warsaw, train №768 departs at 21:45 and arrives in Rava-Ruska at 5:15. 

From Rava-Ruska train №867 departs at 6:15 and arrives in Lviv at 7:45.


To travel to Warsaw from Ukraine passengers can use different routes and trains. Here are some convenient options:


Train №266 Uzhhorod - Kovel arriving in Lviv at 6:00;

Train №91 Kyiv - Lviv arriving in Lviv at 6:18;

Train №130/149 Kremenchuk/Poltava - Vorokhta, Chernivtsi, arriving in Lviv at 6:30;

Train №11/12 Odesa - Lviv, which arrives in Lviv at 7:53 via Vinnytsia, Khmelnytskyi and Ternopil;

Train №41 Dnipro - Truskavets, also via Vinnytsia, Khmelnytskyi and Ternopil, arriving in Lviv at 8:07.


Upon arrival in Lviv, passengers can easily transfer to trains bound for Poland. 


For example:


Train №86 Lviv - Zaporizhzhia via Ternopil, Khmelnytskyi, Vinnytsia, and Dnipro departs from Lviv at 10:58;

Train №749 Uzhhorod - Kyiv, which departs from Lviv at 12:14.


The railway network provides travelers with many opportunities for comfortable and fast travel between Ukraine and Poland. This will further develop international relations and promote exchange between these two neighboring countries.


Ukrainian railways - innovations


Another innovation implemented by Ukrzaliznytsia to improve the quality and safety of travel is the use of secret marshals on trains. 


In October, it became known that this initiative is intended to ensure the maximum level of passenger safety and comfort.


Railway marshals are employees of the company's paramilitary security service who have extensive experience and skills in security and law enforcement. Their main task is to control the security situation in passenger transportation and respond in a timely manner if necessary.


An important feature of the work of these marshals is their secret nature. Unlike security guards who work at railroad facilities in uniform and are visible to passengers, marshals work anonymously. This means that passengers will not know who exactly is among them as a catcher of offenders.


This approach helps to maintain order and safety without unnecessary distraction. The marshals are able to respond discreetly and effectively to any situation that may arise during the trip, thus ensuring peace of mind and safety for everyone on board.


How to travel safely?


Remember that safety and confidence while traveling abroad is the key to a pleasant experience and unforgettable moments. To protect yourself from unplanned expenses and not to risk your health and finances while traveling in Europe, take care of the necessary insurance for the period of your trip.


Traveling between Ukraine and Poland is becoming more affordable and convenient for everyone. You can choose airplane, bus or train tickets within Ukraine and between cities around the world here.
