Volunteers at the train station helping Ukrainian refugees

With terrified people fleeing the war in Ukraine by every possible means of transport, train services from the east are experiencing an unprecedented surge.

The central railway station in Prague is one of the transport hubs where these trains with Ukrainian residents arrive. Most often, they come from Przemysl in Poland or Humenné in eastern Slovakia and then switch to the Czech Republic at Bohumín in the direction of Prague.

At the station, the tired people are assisted by volunteers who provide them with food and drink and help transport them to the refugee center.
