The route of the direct train between the Ukrainian capital Kyiv and the Austrian capital Vienna is already visible online in Austria’s federal railway system Österreichische Bundesbahnen. The first train is expected to depart on 10 December 2017, Hromadske reported.

The new train will depart from Kyiv at 14:07, arrive in Lviv at 19:50, and in Vienna – at 11:21 of the next day. The total time of the journey is 22 hours and 14 minutes.

On the return route, the train will leave Vienna at 16:42, arrive in Lviv at 10:10, and in Kyiv – at 17:11. The return route will last 23 hours 29 minutes.

The connection with Austria was announced in June, when a train connecting Lviv and the Bulgarian city of Varna was launched. As well, the Ukrainian state railway operator Ukrzaliznytsia has routes to Prague, Bratislava, Budapest, Warsaw, and Bucharest, as well as a route between Ukraine’s Kovel and the Polish Chelm.

Dear readers! Since you’ ve made it to this point, we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away, which is why it's extra important to provide news about Ukraine in English. We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using ťhe chance - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you). We are now $5,000 short of our financial goal and need your support to continue working. If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation!

    I love seeing Ukraine becoming more connected to the world instead of acting like the The Ukrainian Autonomous Region of the Russian Republic.
    Both politically and culturally.
