Overnight train, Lviv to Kraków
Author: gobbl3gook

1) Boarded at 11:59 pm.  

2) bicycle tucked on the top bunk.   I was on the middle bunk.  A woman going to an intermediate stop in Poland on the lower bunk. 

3) I always had kafir.  And tea.  I thought the new bike seat (bought the previous week in Slovakia) looked pretty good in this scene.

october 2016.

4) always take a photo of the train schedule!  

5) detraining in Kraków.  We were (I think) the last car on a Przymsel => __? intercity train.  The lettering YKPAIHA" is "Ukraine" or "Ukraina"  in Cyrillic.

Bonus photos -- pretty park buildings. 

the park with the children's railway was a grand park, with lots of pretty monumental buildings.  In original condition!  And reasonably well-maintained.  

questions, comments, observations?

Great scenes inside Eastern Europe; definitely a different world.

I've not seen that paint scheme on Ukrainian sleepers. Normally they are all blue with thin yellow stripes. I've not done that route but have done Warsaw to Kyiv. A great overnight experience complete with a trip through the boggie works and  a very friendly Ukrainian border guard who  upon giving my passport back to me said: "Welcome back to Ukraine." Much appreciated and much more than is typically offered by U.S. Border Protection when returning to my own country. And yes, Eastern Europe is still a completely different world than the western countries. And in some ways a better one.
