Krakow to Kiev by train


I am aware this is a common subject, but I would like some clarification on some things.

I would like to get from Krakow to Kiev on a Sunday/Monday. I need to be in Kiev on the Tuesday for a tour of Chernobyl.

Could you please tell me

a)What are the departure times of this journey and how long does it take?

b)How much would this cost?

I have tried some polish rail websites, but my Polish language skills, let me down.

Thanks :)

There appears to be a direct train (TLK) once per day leaving at 13.10 arriving the following day at 10.18am. Though strangely there is a train that changes at Lvov which is about 1/2 an hour quicker. And another with 2 changes Lvov and Przemysl that is the quickest of all.

Can't help with fares, sorry.

Go by train from Krakow Glowny (the central station) at 15:00 to Kiev Pass.
