Plan a trip to Lviv

How to get to Lviv

  • By train
  • By plane
  • By bus
  • By car

If you are travelling to Lviv by train from Western and Central Europe, it will be convenient to first get to the Polish border city of Przemyśl, from where there are several trains to Lviv several times a day.

As for domestic connections, most trains to Western Ukraine go through Lviv - you can choose the most convenient train.


! Due to martial law, air service is temporarily unavailable.

Danylo Halytskyi Lviv International Airport is the largest Airport in Western Ukraine, in terms of passenger traffic and route network, located 6 km south of the city centre. The route network of the Airport consists of 32 destinations (30 international and 2 domestic). For the Euro 2012 championship, a new airport complex was built on the territory of the Airport using the latest achievements of the aviation industry, which meets modern technologies of passenger and baggage handling, as well as international architectural and technical standards and requirements of ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) and IATA (International Air Transport Association).

The new airport was opened on April 12, 2012. The new terminal "A", with a total area of 39 thousand square meters, contains 9 boarding gates, 4 gangways, 28 check-in desks, 2 self-check-in kiosks, 18 passport control points and 12 aviation security checkpoints. The new airport terminal was built, taking into account the needs of people with disabilities. Therefore, the terminal is equipped in such a way as to ensure comfortable movement and service for disabled passengers. The new terminal has VIP lounges for passengers of domestic and international flights, as well as a modern Duty-Free. The territory adjacent to the new airport terminal contains two parking lots, which are designed for 25 parking spaces for buses and 1.1 thousand parking spaces for cars. 

There is also a Tourist Information Center inside the airport.

You can get to Lviv by bus from almost any city in Europe or Ukraine because quite a few regular buses are running directly to the city or in transit from every major city, town or village.

As a rule, they depart from bus stations or railway stations. 

The most convenient way to get to Lviv is from Poland. In particular from Warsaw, Krakow, Lodz, Katowice, Rzeszow, Lublin, Tomasz Lubelski or Przemyśl.

There are also pedestrian customs crossings on the western border of Ukraine - for example, Korchova-Shehyni (border with Poland). You can get to the customs by bus and pass control. And already in Ukraine, you can use the services of buses that run to the nearest cities to Lviv.

International buses in Lviv usually stop at the Central Bus Station (Stryiska St.) or Bus № 8 (1 Dvirtseva Sq.). We advise you to check this information directly with the driver.

If you are going to Lviv by car, it is most convenient to navigate the international highway E-40 (from the western border to Lviv is the Ukrainian road M-11, and from Kyiv - M-06).

You can also use the international highway E-50 and its part E-573 (especially if you are moving from Hungary).
