The epidemiological situation in Croatia has unfortunately worsened following a brief period of relative ‘peace’ from the virus. While the Dutch Government asks its citizens to go home, warns against all but essential travel to Croatia and organises for travel agencies to transport those who booked package holidays back to the Netherlands, trains to the Croatian Adriatic still remain wildly popular.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 22nd of July, 2020, despite the fact that in the meantime the epidemiological situation in Croatia has somewhat worsened, practically all of the trains coming to the Croatian Adriatic from abroad, more specifically to Rijeka, are still more or less full.
Czech and Slovak tourists are still apparently more than hungry to get away and are failing to lose interest in coming to the Croatian Adriatic by train, regardless of the worsened situation here in Croatia. Namely, the recognisable yellow trains which belong to the Czech carrier Regiojet have been coming from the Czech capital city of Prague to Rijeka every day for some time now, more precisely since July the 10th, and as Novi list has learned, they are regularly full.
Aleš Ondruj, a spokesman for RegioJet, stated to the Croatian press that so far, they have sold approximately 60,000 tickets, most of which were sold to tourists from the Czech Republic and Slovakia. To remind you, the new railway line of the Czech carrier has become a real hit in the Czech Republic, as well as in Slovakia, since the train stops in Brno and Bratislava.
Last month, in the first two days after the tickets to the Croatian Adriatic went on sale, about 9,000 were sold.
