In the meantime, a private carrier will travel to Poland twice a week.
Leo Express will resume its regular connection between Prague and Krakow, Poland, on Friday. Traffic was stopped due to restrictions on cross-border travel last October.
So far, the timetable provides for a connection twice a week: on Friday, Sunday afternoon from Prague and early on Saturday and Monday back. The company has prepared a 25% discount for the first two weeks.
The trains leave Prague every Friday and Sunday at 15:42, and arrive at their destination in Krakow, Poland, at 22:23. On the way in the Czech Republic, they stop on the backbone route between Prague and Ostrava, in Poland, for example, in Katowice. Return trains leave Krakow on Saturday and Monday at 5:03 and end their journey in Prague at 11:49.
Twice a day, the connection to Krakow is twice a day for Czech Railways.
Earlier, Leo Express has resumed connections to Slovakia, where there are currently six pairs of connections on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. “The interest of passengers is also increasing in connection with the possibility of traveling in Slovakia after the first dose of vaccination with an interval of 22 days,” said Leo Express spokesman Emil Sedlařík.
The carrier is also preparing for a bus line to Croatia, which will begin on June 26. Starting points in the Czech Republic are Prague, Brno and Mikulov. The departure points of the line in Croatia are Zadar, Biograd Na Moru, Vodice, Šibenik, Split, Omiš, Baška Voda and Makarska.
