One of the most popular options is the daily Intercity (705K/715K) or train 053K from Kyiv to Przemysl. The night train departs at 19:48, at 7:21 you are already in Przemysl, but keep in mind that the train may be late. Ticket price ~1500 UAH.

Further from Przemysl we go by train to one of the cities where there is an airport. The closest cities to Przemysl are Rzeszów, Krakow, Katowice and Lublin.

  • Rzeszow(Rzeszów) is the closest option (1 hour from Przemysl), but there is not a very large selection of departure destinations from Rzeszow Airport.

If not, go further to Krakow or Katowice – there are significantly more flights available from these two cities.
  • Krakow or Katowice – from Przemysl to Krakow it takes about 3 hours, to Katowice – approximately 4 hours. From these airports you can get anywhere, in addition, low-cost airlines Ryanair and Wizz Air fly from them.
