Taking the train from Berlin to Lviv
Between Berlin and Lviv, Route 48 takes in two particularly fine Polish cities, Poznań and Kraków – both with magnificent central squares. Not to mention the capital Warsaw too. Like every route in the book, this journey is not just about getting from A to B. It’s better to linger and take a few days exploring places along the way.
