Jutarnji List reports that over 20,000 Czechs have already bought a ticket for the famous Czech yellow train RegioJet, which will start bringing the first passengers to the Adriatic coast on May 28. Unlike last year, when the Czechs had the opportunity to travel exclusively to Rijeka by train, a line was introduced to Split this year, and the train will pass through Zagreb and Budapest.

RegiotJet announced the interest for all their lines, including the one to Croatia, is growing by 25 percent from week to week. Already this week, RegioJet reached the number of passengers they had only in mid-September last year, and the railway operator believes that the good traffic trends will continue. 

When looking at Croatia, up to 400 tickets are sold daily to Adriatic destinations, and the prices are affordable this year as well – from 23 to 50 euros one way, depending on the route and type of seat. This year, trains run on the same schedule as last year – they depart from Prague at 16:46, arrive in Rijeka on the second day at 10:13 in the morning, and in Split at 13:44.

On the return, the train departs Split at 15:51, from Rijeka at 19:55, and arrives in Prague the next day just after 13:00. 

In June and October, trains will run three times a week on the route to Croatia, while in July and August, the line will run daily.

Last year, the train brought 60,000 tourists to Croatia. This year, they’d like to bring 100,000. 

”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. 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 month.
