Night Train to Lviv:
Matt (Matcrazy01) reserved and booked train tickets to Lviv and back to Krakow for us. Hans and I requested 2nd class in sleeping compartment for 3 people. It was 249.80 zl each for Hans and I - so altogether 500 zl or about $160.00 CDN.
We were scheduled to depart at 10:32 p.m. About ten of us boarded the night train. Our passports and group tickets were checked before we were allowed onto the train. We were allocated a sleeping compartment for three. Ove (OH_DK) shared the compartment with Hans and I. It was already late so we made up our beds (sheets & pillows provided) and tried to get some sleep, even with "party central" next door to us. At the end of the Polish border, we were awakened as we had to produce our passports and then again at the Ukraine border (it was now about 4:00 a.m. We finally arrived in Lviv about 6:15 a.m.

Day Train back to Krakow:
Departure 7:19 a.m. Lviv Train Station
The Day Train was fun, as we were all awake, walking around and visiting each other. We enjoyed looking out the windows, taking in the countryside and little towns.
Also actually got to see how they changed the wheels on the train - fascinating and time consuming - two hours.
