RegioJet launches daily trains from Prague to Croatia

Based in Brno RegioJet upgraded its Prague-Croatia rail service to daily service.

The train line passes through Brno and Bratislava to the Croatian towns of Ogulin, Split and Rijeka. There you can transfer by bus to other resorts of the country.

Comfortable and affordable – a berth in a sleeping car for the entire distance of more than 1000 km costs only 590 CZK for a seat and from 790 CZK for a seat in a sleeping car. – the RegioJet route will operate until the end of September. The service will be daily in high season, in July and August.

It stops along the way in Bratislava but not in Budapest. The distinctly yellow colored train will depart Prague shortly after 4.30pm, arrive in Zagreb shortly after 5.00am then, splitting at Ogulin, travel to Rijeka at 10.15am and Split at 1.45pm.

In terms of capacity, Regiojet’s head of international projects said capacity this year is over 600 passengers per train, which means it is, again, 15 carriages. Wagons with seats as well as sleeping cars will also be available.

“Perhaps the only change is that we have increased the number of so-called ‘quiet carriages’ which are suitable for families with young children or the elderly. The trains will once again offer familiar comfort at very popular prices and tickets for the Prague Regiojet train have been on sale since March 8 this year.

You can share a compartment or reserve one for your own convenience. As always, all onboard services are included in the ticket price. Breakfast, bedding, pillow and blanket for sleeping cars; Rajec water for seat cars.

Last year, most passengers flew from the Czech Republic, while 10% of tickets were sold in Slovakia.
