2The 1st train departs after 11 am. I don't know of any earlier regular connections. I can confirm #1's info: crossing on foot is strictly forbidden. You might try hitching a ride with some driver - but actually given the time it might take to cross the border by car you might be better off just waiting for the 11 am train.

7The daily "Vitava", leaving Praha at 21:54, is called the D 405 (from Bohumin to Brest) and it leaves Terespol (next day) at 15:41 according to my DB source.

11No you cannot - EU-Belarus border is 99.5 per cent impregnable.

12I plan to travel from somewhere in Poland to Brest, and I noted there is a much more convenient train connection if I only go by train to Terespol and cross the border by other means. And I suppose it is presumably cheaper - x-border train travel usually is a lot more expensive.
I am suprised by the above comment that walking is forbidden. ys, of course, it is forbidden to walk along the train track, but what f you follow the road? On the map it is only 6,5 kom (4 miles), which is quite a long walk - but aren't there smart ways to cross the border?
Incidentally, the reason why the travel time from Terespol to Brest varies so much is that Belarus is in a different time zone than Poland! The net elapsed time should be around 18 minutes.

14This is very helpful indeed! So shuttles ar cheap. (I thought of my experience last year when I bought a long distance ticket from Poland in to Lithuania wich was suprisingly expensive).
With this information, it is just funny to know that you may not cross the border on foot. (I actually entered the United States on foot - after a short trip to Mexico where I was not allowed to take my rental car).
As regards your last remark: for instance todays train Warszawa-Moskwa D10 takes 2:11 from terespol to Brest whereas D9JA westbound (long distance too) only needs 18 minutes.
NOW i AM STILL LOOKING FOR BELARUS TRAIN TARIFS. In th Dutch "treinreiswinkel" (train ticket shop) one can buy tickets for travel within Belarus, but I guess it is a lot cheaper to do that locally. Or is the service at Belarus windows to be avoided? When I went to Ukraina I read horror stories about windows at train stations but the actual purchase went like a breeze.
