The Czech transport company RegioJet plans to directly connect the Czech capital, Prague, with the Croatian port city of Rijeka.
“Negotiations between foreign partners are nearing completion,” RegioJet spokesman Ales Ondruj said on Monday, adding that ticket sales could begin in the next few days.
It is planned that from June 30th, at least three trains will run in both directions per week, with an available internet connection service.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many Czechs are spending the holidays in their country this summer, but Croatia is also considered an attractive tourist destination due to the relatively low number of people infected with covid-19.
If the border between Germany and the Czech Republic opens by then, as expected, a new train could be an interesting option for passengers from the neighboring German state of Saxony.
The Czech state railway company Ceske Drahy stopped its popular night train, the "Adriatic", between Prague and Split, a few years ago. High costs were the decisive factor.
