Re: Train travel Ukraine 19th-20th Century/ #ukraine
I believe someone recently enquired about train travel to Lemberg (present Lviv) from Czernowitz (present Chernivtsi) or between other parts of Ukraine in pre WW1 days to elucidate the journey their forebears might have undertaken to reach the UK/US.
Both these town are now in Ukraine but previously in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The line between these 2 town was constructed in 1866 and other lines followed to the rest of the Ukraine in subsequent years. Further information can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lviv_Railways
Last year I was planning a rail trip from SW Ukraine to Lviv. The journey from Chernivtsi to Lviv takes 4-6 hours.
