Hi Jon and welcome to Ukraine forum! :)

>>> Is it easy to find the way from airport to railway station?

No sweat - there are direct public buses/mini-buses from Boryspil airport (KBP, if this is the one you are flying into) to Pivdenniy Railway Station (this is the other side of the Central Railway Station, or Kyiv-Pas).

You can find more info about this here: http://kbp.ua/en/transport/sky-bus/

>>> How long will the trip take?

Which one, please? from the airport to the railway station or from Kyiv to Lviv by train?

>>> is it overnight train?

Yes, since they have temporarily withdrew Intercity intraday express trains (not sure if they are back en rout yet), you can take an overnight sleeper.

You will find current trains time-table here: http://tinyurl.com/ap5j8ua

And here you can book train tickets on-line: http://booking.uz.gov.ua/en/ (make sure to insert Kyiv and Lviv, accordingly).

If needed, you can read more about train travel in Ukraine here: tripadvisor.com/Travel-g294473-c131482/Ukrai…

Have a nice trip!

I believe this topic should be on this forum somewhere...

Anyway - from airport to railway station - there is "Sky Bus" (round-o-clock - 2-4 per hour, ticket about 40 uah, about 1 hour trip) - you may google out schedule on site of Boryspil airport.

From Kyiv to Lviv - about ten dayly trains. Most convenient - overnight #91 (leaving 22:40 arriving 6:26), fastest - #169 ("Intercity" - 17:26 - 22:20).

Just be sure to get a first class ticket. I took the overnight train. I slept most of the way. Lviv is much easier to around versus Kiev.
