An overnight train remains the most afordable/safe way to travel in Ukraine.

The train #105 from Kyiv to Odessa leaves at 21:54 and arrives in Odessa at 6:12 am; the return train #106 leaves Odessa at 22:54 and arrives in Kyiv at 7:37. the train is a combination of new and old cars, with price difference in UAH 40 ($5). The newer cars are located in the beginning of the train (#1-10). the price for a one-way second class ticket (a sleeping berth in a compartment for 4 people) is between UAH 120-160 Hr ($15-20). My recommendation is to ask for a ticket in the newer cars which has softer berths and civilized toilets.

You should by tickets well advance if you decide to visit Odessa over the weekend or major holidays city like Odessa Yumorina (Odessa’s Fool Day, April 1) and the City Day (September 1-2). You should by tickets WELL IN ADVANCE if you decide to travel there any time in summer.
