Connecting neighbours: southern Poland to launch regular trains to Prague

Southern Poland's railway carrier Koleje Dolnośląskie (Lower Silesian Railways) will expand its transportation offer with a direct rail connection between the southwestern Polish city of Wrocław and the Czech capital, Prague, starting from December 9, 2019.

The route will be operated by trains of the Czech carrier Leo Express, and, on the Polish section, served by the crews of Lower Silesian Railways.

Passengers will have four trains at their disposal on weekends and two trains during workdays. On other days, they will be able to use the connections operating to date with a change in Lichkov and Usti nad Orlici, in the Czech Republic.

The new direct connection will shorten the travel time to Prague from the current five-hour journey with a change to a little over four hours.
