On July 25, the train Rakhiv - Kyiv will become faster and receive the trade name "Hutsulshchyna"
To ensure comfortable journey for passengers, starting from July 25, the UZ appoints night passenger train № 357/358 Kyiv - Rakhiv "Huzulschyna" instead of the train № 457/458 of the same route. Thanks to the new schedule, the duration of the train trip will be more that one hour shorter and amount to 17 hours 44 minutes.
The train № 358 Rakhiv - Kyiv departs from Rakhiv at 12:30 and arrives to Kyiv at 6:14, which also provides a convenient transfer to Intercity+ trains № 722 Kyiv - Kharkiv and № 732 Kyiv - Zaporizhzhya.
The second class train "Hutsulshchyna" will consist of reserved seat cars, sleeping cars and luxury compartment cars. It is a train with comfortable cars with ventilation and air conditioning, equipped with removable improved inventory and served by an experienced train crew.
The UZ opened direct railway connecion Kyiv - Rakhiv almost a year ago, due to numerous requests. The train immediately became popular among the local population and tourists who visit Rakhiv district (Rakhiv, Kvasy, Yasinya), Yaremche district (Yaremche, Vorokhta), Pokuttya (Kolomyia, Hvizdets, Horodenka), Bukovina (Stefaneshty) and South Ternopil region (Zalischyky, Tovste, Chortkiv, Kopychyntsi, Khorostkiv, Terebovlia). Therefore, almost immediately it was transferred to daily plying instead of every other day.
Tickets can be purchased through online service of tickets reservation and purchase booking.uz.gov.ua. It is very convenient for residents of remote settlements in mountainous terrain and tourists.
