    We took the train from Kosice (Slovakia) to Lviv. Here the train got taken apart and only our carriage continued. We had to wait for the Uzhhorod-Kiev train to arrive, so our carriage could get hooked on. Our carriage actually travelled all the way from Vienna to Kiev.

    Railway Station

    There 2 railway stations. One old grey - main, and yellow renewed - intercity station. Main station look quite depressing and smells too much soviet - big, grey, with 'patriotic' pics and usually lonely. Intercity station - recently it was renewed, quite good inside and better place to spend time waiting for train or bus, also to have coffee.

    Entering from Slovakia

    by carlitoab Written Jun 11, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When entering from Slovakia, as far as I am aware, there is only one train - the night train that connects Bratislava and Kiev. We used this train to travel between Kosice (Slovakia) and L'viv (Ukraine). Even though we had purchased an international ticket, for some reason we had to pay an extra fee once we crossed the border and had passed trough passport control. This fee (8.5 HRNs each to L'viv) was aparently for the beds on the night train as there are no normal seats (the passenger part we travelled on from Kosice was disconnected), even though it was mid-morning we still had to sleep! We we then asked to pay another 10HRNs each for bed linen - on the way back we didn't have to as a Ukrainian lady who was sharing our cabin translated that we didn't want linen. On the way back, we had to pay the same fee to chop (8.5HRNs) then another 1.5HRNs each to travel on the normal passenger car to Kosice from Chop.

    WARNING: The wait at Chop is long and slow as the train has to be adjusted to travel on the Ukrainian tracks which are narrower.

    I went by train from Uzhgorod to Chop,
    When we arrived we had to wait 30 min before entering the customs.
    So we went for a coffee in the square in front of the station.
    My ukrainian friends toke my luguage into the customes area and then i was on my own again.
    They checked just one of my bags and then i was allowed to wait with all the other travellers. We had to wait about 20 min. untill they opened the doors from the station.and then i searched for my wagon after showing my ticket.

    The bus station is in front of the border station. That's where you catch a bus to Uzhhorod. They seemed to depart pretty frequently and are of the minibus (marshrutka) style.

    We were crossing border to Hungary and out by bus, and it took each time awfully 4 hours of waiting :( At those times I always remind Poland-Ukraine border, where all this process takes max 2 hours.
