RegioJet launches train from Czech Republic to Ukraine

CZECH REPUBLIC → UKRAINE. WHICH CITIES CAN YOU REACH?
From the Czech capital, there is an opportunity to get to Kyiv, Lviv, Khmelnytsky, Vinnytsia, and Ternopil. Trains will also run in the opposite direction.
The flight is a change in Przemyśl on the Ukrzaliznytsia train, which will take you to your destination. Thus, by buying a ticket on the carrier's website, you get a ticket for two trains.
Prague - Pardubice - Cesky Tesin - Zabrze na Moravi - Olomouc - Ostrava (Svinov) - Ostrava - Bhumin - Krakow - Przemysl - Lviv - Ternopil - Khmelnytsky - Vinnytsia - Kyiv
Ukrainians will be able to buy a ticket from Prague to Kyiv for 229 kroons (≈ € 25) and to Lviv for 639 kroons (≈ € 9).
This cost is valid only for Ukrainians. The ticket price also includes breakfast and dinner, coffee and tea, still water, bed linen, and Wi-Fi.
You can buy tickets here. In fact, passengers pay only for a section of the road by Ukrzaliznytsia trains, and the Prague-Przemyśl route is free. In addition, the total cost of tickets for Ukrainians is reduced. How to book a discounted ticket, read on the website.
