Services at the railway stations of Ukraine

 

Price of train tickets in Ukraine

Train is the most economic transport mean in Ukraine. The price of train ticket depends on the time of trip (rush time, working days or weekend) and the booking class

Trains - booking classes, different types of carriages & compartments

  • 1st class (SV) 

The first option is the most comfortable but also the most expensive and not the most sociable. It is a compartment for two people only with two lower berths and a table near the window. It is possible to buy two tickets and you will have the whole compartment for yourself. The interrelation quality/price is not the most interesting. If you are travelling together and care of privacy, choose SV.

  • 2nd class (kupe)

Each compartment has two lower berths and two upper berths. Like the SV, the compartments can be locked from the inside for your safety and comfort. It’s the best compromise and you'll be able to meet interesting people. Time passes more quickly... And comfort like in SV.

  • 3rd class (Platskart) 
The least expensive: the carriage is "open": it has no closed compartments. Very economic way of travelling in Ukraine.
 
All the trains usually have air conditioners, but it may happen that some supplementary trains do not have air conditioning or it does not work.
 

From airport to rail station Kiev or Odessa

Some advice for those who haven't chosen the pass of tickets at the station. The first thing you need to do is to find the platform. It's not very easy because everything is written cyrillic. Usually you have about half an hour to make yourself comfortable in your place in the train if your train is already at the station (generally trains are given in half an hour before departure). The train will consist of many carriages, usually over 15. You will not find specific markers for the location of your carriage (the number appears on your ticket and near the windowa of the trains). The SV carriage (Ukr and Rus CB) is located in the middle of the train. Also provide yourself with some food because not all trains have a dinning car... and more than twelve hours without eating is a long time!

Right before entering your carriage you have to show your ticket to the conductor. People who accompany you and help you with your luggage are allowed to board. They can stay with you to help you to find your compartment and your place in the carriage: upper berth or lower berth.
