You go to the station in Kyiv, look in the central hall for trains calling at L'viv, buy a ticket for that train at the ticket booth, walk to the relevant platform, get on the train, sit back enjoy the ride and get off at L'viv, exit the station and hey presto.

You could also try and booking the tickets online instead of buying at the station.

Thats how you get from Kyiv to L'viv by train...

Check whether reservations are required. It is a very long journey. Trains in Ukraine are not high speed!

You can do it on line as well, but I'm not sure if there is an advantage in going so, other than not having to tackle a Ukrainian ticket office by yourself.

There is a link showing you how to do it in the link I posted below.

Did this journey a couple of months ago. There are several trains a day including a sleeper. The fastest is the early morning modern express but it leaves at about 6am! We travelled on a train that left at about 11.30am and took about five and a half hours. Very comfortable, with buffet but we had our own food.

Booking was very easy using the Ukraine Railways site with no problem (UKRZALIZNYTSIA). In English and easy to use. Booked about a month ahead. Print your own ticket with seat reservation.

Loved Lviv and Kiev was good too.
