As Morski writes, more than 15,000 hopeful Czech nationals have already bought their tickets for the RegioJet Prague-Split train which will hopefully take them to Croatia this summer. The very first train is set to head down to Dalmatia on May the 28th, 2021. Just like last year, this year the train organised by the RegioJet agency will run between the two countries, but now, in addition to Rijeka, passengers will also travel down to Split.

In addition to the above, the news is that Croatian passengers will also be able to board the train when it reaches Zagreb. The RegioJet Prague-Split train will run three times a week throughout the months of May, June and September, and in the peak season it will run every day, and everything has already been organised in cooperation with the Croatian Railways and the Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ).

It is all being dealt with in a similar way as it was last year, when the train brought 60,000 tourists to Croatia. This year, despite the ongoing unfavourable epidemiological situation, their capacity and goal is 100,000, according to a report from Vecernji list.

”We’re very optimistic despite the ongoing pandemic. We believe that the situation with the coronavirus is going to calm down, in the Czech Republic the numbers are already falling, here in Croatia, security is given by the Safe Croatia label for tourist facilities that are properly implementing safety measures. People are showing great interest in Croatia and we think that the demand will grow even more: young people are buying more tickets, while families are opting for tourist arrangements that we also offer,” explained Ales Ondruj from RegioJet.

Last year, the train ran with twelve wagons, and this year there will be fifteen and it will carry 650 passengers – in Ogulin, the compositions will be divided into two parts and seven of the said compositions will continue on down to Split, and eight will go to Rijeka. Passengers will be met at their end destinations by buses that will then transport them to their final destinations, from Istria all the way down to Dubrovnik.

Another novelty is that this RegioJet Prague-Split train no longer goes through Slovenia, where there were administrative problems last year owing to the pandemic, but will instead come from Prague via Brno, Bratislava and Budapest to Zagreb, where Croatian passengers will be able to board, and then go on further to the Croatian coast.

”The train arrives in Zagreb early in the morning and is in Rijeka at 10:00, while the return is in the evening, so locals can also use it for a trip if they want to,” announced Ondruj.

RegioJet is monitoring the changes in border regimes and will take care of all of the needed paperwork – they will collect certificates of negative tests or vaccination cards from passengers and deliver them directly to the Ministry of the Interior (MUP). A one-way ticket stands at a difficult to resist price of just 22 euros, and if the situation becomes complicated because of the pandemic, the money will be returned to the passengers, reports Vecernji list.
