Video review. Intercity Kyiv — Zaporizhia train, December 2013

Look at how the trip looks from the inside.

Those passengers, who have already used high-speed railway services on Intercity trains, know that such a trip is convenient and comfortable. According to our frequent tourists’ feedback, — sometimes it makes sense to buy railway tickets to the lounge car, as the lounge car is not crowded and you will feel free-and-easy.

TV in the train car

You are able to watch TV in the Intercity and Intercity+ trains, but actually, they usually disturb tourists more, than entertain. Do not hesitate to ask the train guide to make a sound quieter, if it disturbs you.

Convenient places in the train car

Please note that the seats in the train cars are located in different ways. If you like to travel face-up on the move, please choose such a place.
One more thing to point on. For those who travel with family, friends or company, it will be convenient to choose places facing each other with a table in the middle. The price of the Intercity train tickets is slightly higher than for common trains, but it’s worth it. If you’ve decided to go by train — choose comfort!

Technology of modern Intercity trains

When you travel by the Intercity train for the first time, you can be really surprised by the buttons on the doors to the train car and between the train cars — when you press them, the door opens automatically.

This feature is already not new in Europe and such buttons are successfully used in trains.

Wi-Fi in the modern Ukrainian trains is still an exception, unfortunately. Your computer can even catch a Wi-Fi signal, but it will not always be possible to access the network. On the other hand, there are sockets near each seat, so you can work all the way at the computer or watch your favorite movie.

Reviews

  • Review text: The second-class train car of the “Intercity” surprised us by the climate control system. Outside – sun heat, and in the train car comfortable temperature, fresh air, but doesn’t blow. Armchairs are comfortable, there are stable pull-out tables, withstand both a laptop, and an ultrabook, a spacious passage and a vestibule, 2 clean toilets. Constantly deliver tea and coffee, in train always clean. The only one minus is that WiFi doesn’t work. If you need internet – take a 3G modem (the mobile Internet working on the most of the way). The train is on the way for 7 hours, arrives in Zaporozhye at a convenient time.
