Rail and bus operator RegioJet will for the fourth season operate an overnight train service between Croatia and the Czech Republic this summer.
The service from Prague in the Czech Republic to Rijeka in Croatia, going via Břeclav and Bratislava in Slovakia and Celje in Slovenia, will commence on June 16 and will operate three times a week until September 30.
Every Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday, the train from Prague will set off while on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, the train from Rijeka will depart.
The fifteen-car train is estimated to have a maximum occupancy of 600 passengers.
The night trains in July and August of last year proved to be a hit, prompting an extension of the service until September. RegioJet reported approximately 100,000 passengers transported in each direction each season since.
Unlike previous years, the trains will not run all the way to Split this summer, RegioJet said, adding that passengers can access the coast by utilising connecting buses from both Ogulin and Rijeka.
The buses will offer departures to a variety of destinations including Makarska, Krk, Pula, Zadar, and Split.
RegioJet is hoping to return the Split service next summer. Tickets are already on sale for this summer via the RegioJet website.
