The construction of a European railway project has begun in Zakarpattia, making Uzhhorod the first regional center in Ukraine to be connected to Europe by such a railway.

This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.


According to the Prime Minister, the Chop-Uzhhorod European railway will allow the launching of a direct railway connection with the regional centers of Zakarpattia and Vienna, Bratislava, Kosice, Budapest, Prague, Bucharest, Dresden, and Belgrade.

"The implementation of the project will create a transport hub in Uzhhorod that will provide convenient and fast passenger transfers between wide-gauge trains and trains of EU countries," Shmyhal said.
