You will find many food vendors, local village folk selling Icreams, Dried Fish, Cakes... It is facinationg to see. But I would watch out and check that the food looks safe.

Trains are great, cheap and clean apart from the toilets. Take some toilet paper with you.


: Sergei gave a good reply, but I took the train in March and the station was under construction.
: It was a very long train, a thousand people scrambling to get on in Kiev and there was mass confusion,dark, people falling down holes in the platform etc.
: The train took off very quickly - I was glad I had some local friends with me to help
: It was a great, fun time though.
: Take some food, as your wagon mates will be sharing theirs, and vodka, with you.
: There is a bar/food on the train but it might be a solid hike through nine or ten carriages to get to it.
